The BMW 3 series alone is a splendid vehicle which excites me every time I see it on the road, but now, as I browse the latest motoring news, my eyes behold an even greater spectacle… the 3 series Gran Turismo has been revealed, and it looks fantastic!beamer

It is much larger than the original 3 series saloon, and kind of looks like it has been influenced by the styling of the X6. It comes in the form of a hatchback but the rear end is stretched out to give a coupe-like look which creates plentiful rear overhang. This means there is plenty of space in the back, for both passengers and an ample boot (520 litres with the seats up, 1600 litres with them down.

The Gran Turismo 3 Series looks sportier, it features ‘Air Breathers’; cut-outs in the front wings of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, as well as the first ever active spoiler to feature on a BMW which rises at 70mph, and lowers at 43mph to improve rear-end lift by 35%.

There will be five different engines to choose from, 3 petrols and two diesels, all of which are tried and tested in other used BMW models.

The 3 Series GT is to make its first appearance at the Geneva Motor Show and is scheduled to go on sale mid-June. The 3 series has a good reliability record, so the BMW’s servicing costs shouldn’t be too high with the GT model.
