BMW 5-Series GT Facelift 1

Here we have the latest photos of the facelifted BMW 5 Series GT that’s due later this year, snapped by our regular European spy lensmen CarPix. BMW’s first Gran Turismo model hasn’t exactly set the order books on fire so this is as good a time as any to introduce a mid-life update for the four-year old design.

Behind the minimal camouflage, the F07 LCI looks to involve very minor exterior changes. The tweaked front fascia features a reshaped kidney grille and lightly updated lower intakes. As expected for a BMW facelift these days, the headlamps appear to have fancier LED graphics too.

See the taped-up section on the front wings? It’s likely that a more stylised fender ornament or vent is hiding underneath, perhaps something similar to the one introduced on the smaller 3 GT (you can read Anthony’s take on the all-new model here). The wing mirrors will get integrated turn lamps too, which is now a BMW norm.

Not much can be seen at the back, but expect it to be reshaped as the current car’s bulbous rear deck never did it any favours – think sleeker, less top-heavy rump as the 3 GT’s. Not impressed? A more significant update is expected under the bodywork so don’t count it out just yet.
