BMW's Gran Turismo on sale in Bahrain



Euro Motors in Bahrain has launched the new BMW Gran Turismo in the kingdom. The Gran Turismo is equipped with eight-speed automatic transmission and two engine variants - the in-line six cylinder 535i and the V8 550i - both with twin-turbo technology.It has a maximum output of 306hp with a top speed of 250kmph and can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 6.3 seconds. The top-of-the-range engine, the BMW 550i Gran Turismo has a maximum output of 407hp with a top speed of 250kmph and can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 5.5 seconds.

The BMW GT is a completely new concept from the BMW stable. Apart from the fact that it enhances the product line up, the vehicle itself is a statement in terms of design, form, function, power and luxury. It literally combines the benefits of a sedan, sports activity vehicle and grand touring in a seamless beautiful solution.

A coupe like grace helps cover up the large dimensions of the vehicle and add to the overall image. Four doors, frameless windows and two piece tail gate give the Gran Turismo an elegant appeal from the word go.
