Official Release: From autumn 2011, the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo will for the first time be available with an M Sport package which accentuates and intensifies the most dynamic facets of this model. The package comprises a range of aerodynamics, suspension and interior components which were developed specifically for this model and which heighten both the sporty driving qualities and the brawny appearance of the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo. The specification includes an M aerodynamics package, dark chrome tailpipes, lowered M Sport suspension and 19-inch V-spoke M alloy wheels with mixed tyres. Alternatively, 20-inch twin-spoke M alloy wheels with mixed tyres are available as an option.
A typical M feel in the interior is provided by sports seats upholstered in fabric/alcantara (Dakota leather for the BMW 550i Gran Turismo), an M leather steering wheel, M driver’s footrest, M door sill finishers, Palladium Grey interior trim strips and a BMW Individual roof lining in anthracite. In conjunction with the M Sport package, seven exterior paint finishes are available for the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, including M-exclusive Carbon Black metallic.
In addition to the regular optional equipment list for the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, various exclusive options from the BMW Individual range are also available. Four more BMW Individual paint colours will be on offer in future. These will include the BMW Individual exterior paint finishes Citrin Black metallic, Champagne Quartz metallic, matt-finish Frozen Grey metallic and matt-finish Frozen Silver metallic. Also new in the BMW Individual range for this model will be 20-inch V-spoke alloy wheels with mixed tyres. In conjunction with the optional comfort seats, the extended BMW Individual Merino leather trim will be available in Platinum/Black and Amaro Brown/Black.
The exclusive appearance of the seats, both at the front and at the rear, is finished off by contrasting piping. Matching leather BMW Individual interior trim strips in Platinum/Black and Amaro Brown/Black are also available. The stylish and exclusive ambience can be topped off with BMW Individual door sill finishers and a BMW Individual rear badge.
