The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo (also referred to as the BMW 5 Series GT) is an executive or mid-size car from German manufacturer BMW, which was first displayed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show as a concept car. It was designed by Christopher Weil. It is the first production-destined rendition for BMW's Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS) series of cars, its development code was F07.
The F07 platform provides a vehicle length traditionally found in a BMW 7 Series, but with the headroom found in a BMW X5. The F07 also features a unique "bi-modal" trunk, similar to the Twin Door concept on the Škoda Superb, which may be opened in a traditional car like fashion, or the entire hatch may be open in a traditional SUV fashion for larger objects.
The F07 Gran Turismo shares the same F01 7 Series-derived platform, powertrain, mechanical package, and dashboard with the F10 sedan. However the F07's fascia has different headlights and bumper, with a larger split-kidney grille similar to that of the F01 7 Series. The F07 also has a taller height resulting in a higher center of gravity, its longer length allows for more rear legroom, the rear passenger accommodation has optional "Executive" bucket seats for two instead of the three-seat bench, and it weights 400 pounds heavier compared to the F10. The F07 also features frame-less doors and a double-pane liftgate trunk.
On January 30, 2009 BMW released a video "BMW Concept: Scribble Video". The video was the first public introduction into the thought process behind the design of the progressive activity vehicle series and the upcoming 5 GT. 
Technology and equipment
The models include 8-speed automatic transmission, and BMW EfficientDynamics regenerative braking. Dynamic Drive Control with optional Adaptive Drive added COMFORT setting in addition to NORMAL, SPORT and SPORT+ modes, with reduced stability control intervention in the SPORT+ setting and in the traction mode.
The cargo capacity is increased to 590 litres (1,700 litres with folded rear seats). Other features include LED daytime driving lights. Optional features include 4-zone automatic air conditioning (standard in BMW 550i Gran Turismo), telecommunication and navigation systems, a USB port, a 80 GB hard disc for navigation data and music collection, a multi-channel audio system, a DAB double tuner, a DVD entertainment system at the rear, a Head-Up Display, a panorama glass roof, an electrically swivelling trailer hook.
In the 5er GT - partly against surcharge - are several driver assistance systems how:
- Adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go feature
- Blind Spot Information System,
- Lane departure warning system,
- Night vision
- Head-Up Display,
- Integral Active Steering (rear wheel steering)
- Rear view camera,
- Sideview (two cameras in the front bumper that look to the left and right)
- Topview (of the two additional cameras in the exterior mirrors, the side-view cameras, reversing camera and sensors from the PDC to create an overall picture of the vehicle and its environment, and show it from the air) and
- a speed limit display. For this, a camera will check street signs with speed limits. These are displayed in the speedometer, as well as head-up display.
Design and style
The 5 GT has dimensions mimicking in length the 7 Series, a height and trunk space slightly more than the 5 Series wagon, and headroom comparable to the BMW X5. It also features design cues from the BMW CS Concept, as well as new designs indicative of upcoming models. The vehicle has a coupe-like roofline, elevated seating, and a "bi-modal" trunk which operates like a sedan or a traditional SUV. For the first time on a 4-door BMW, the 5 GT features frameless doors. The headlights contain the new LED Corona rings slanted at an angle and extending into the fenders.
