BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo is being tested in a production body
On snowy roads of Scandinavia the company BMW continues testing a new model – 6-Series Gran Turismo. The new vehicle is, certainly, covered with camouflage, but according to “photospies” it is being tested in the production body.
Most likely it is really a preproduction sample, since the official debut of the BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo is planned for September 2017.
Why do we think it is exactly the 6-Series GT test-driven by the Bavarians? First, the information about such plans is available for a rather long time. Second, the prototype in Scandinavia is larger than the new generation of the 5-Series shown last autumn.
Moreover, today the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo (photo above) is in weak demand (yes, it happens even with BMW models). The Germans have been changing the whole lineup of the 5-Series. Receintly a new wagon has been presented, for instance.
The 6-Series GT is expected to be not only larger than the 5-Series GT, but more premium by equipment.
So, the automaker has a chance to fill space before a BMW 8-Series in the model lineup. The BMW 8-Series is being revived and prepared for mass production.
It is possible the 5-Series GT remains in the lineup, but it will be a new model different from the modern one. This class is demanded. Good sales of the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo confirm it.
