3er GT is much lower and sleeker than the 5er GT.
The brief for the 3er follows the same as the 5er GT travelling in style but add the word (fast!) for the 3er.
Customers for the 3er GT are entirely different from the 5er GT, especially with the car being a 3er in which the customer expects the best Premium entry Sports sedan when they get behind the wheel of a 3er.
The front end is something similar to this except the GT bloodline allows the headlights to follow the form of the 5er GT and turn upwards at the corners. but the overall shape is more flatter and angular like the rendering.
The car has a high belt line which completely wraps around the car , like the second illustration this allows the roof to be lower and sleeker.
The 3er GT is coming due to the response of the 5er GT which has sold over 20,000 units since it's introduction late last year, highly significant for a low volume premium product. In the US. The 5er GT has already eclipsed over two-years Combined sales of the 5er Touring since it's North American introduction earlier this year.
if the 3gt looks anything like this, it will be my next car
