BMW releases 3-Series Gran Turismo video presentation

200mm longer than Touring variant

BMW has just uploaded on their official YouTube channel a new video presenting the recently announced 3-Series Gran Turismo.

Publicly unveiled last month in Geneva, the 3-Series GT is 200mm longer and 81 mm taller than the Touring variant and also has a 110mm extended wheelbase. As a result of these changes, rear passengers benefit from an additional 70mm of legroom, while the cargo room has jumped to 1,600 liters once the rear seats are folded down.

Design echoes the 3-Series family but is easily distinguishable thanks to the hatch which has an active spoiler deployable at 68 mph (110 km/h) and retractable once the car travels below 43 mph (70 km/h). It's offered with a wide array of engines, starting with a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo with 143 HP (105 kW) and ending with the inline-six 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo providing 306 HP (225 kW).

Everything is fine but probably I'll never understand why they call these models GT cars

It's fun to notice how few shots there are of the car's full body. The first third of the video is in the dark. Then it's a lot of detail and interior shots with very brief, and obstructed, body shots. At least they know they don't have a looker on their hands.

I sat in a 335i GT showcar two weeks ago at AutoShanghai. Personally I felt it only slightly roomier than Chinese-spec 3er LWB sedan. Whereas the 5GT is significantly roomier than regular 5er. I didn't see the point of the 3GT, especially when considering its insane price here in China: $110,000 USD for a 335i GT. I could get a Chinese-spec 730Li for this price.
