BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo gets an M-Sport treatment

While the new BMW 3 Series F30 gets its M-Sport package unveiled during the car launch, it took BMW 2 years to offer the same package for its BMW 5 Series GT. The M-Sport package for 5GT comprises a range of aerodynamics, suspension and interior enhancement which were developed specifically for this model.
The exterior part included under M-Sport package consist of new front and rear bumper design together with more pronounced sills skirting. At the back , dark chrome tailpipes made an appearance. The 19" V-spoke M alloy wheels are paired with lowered M-Sport suspension which promised more taut handling. 20" twin-spoke rims are available too.
For the interior, the M-Sport 5GT gets the customary sports seat upholstered in fabric/alcantra, M leather steering wheel, M driver foot rest, M sill plates, Palladium Grey interior trim strips and BMW Individual anthracite roof lining. For 550i GT, the interior is upholstered in Dakota leather.
More after the jump.
