BMW 5 Series GT Concept

Pete Mait

There's not a lot more that can be said about the BMW X6. The debate has been comprehensive, with criticism and praise being heaped on it in approximately equal measure. In short, you either love it or hate it. And that's the way it should be.

Keen to stay in the public eye, BMW have now gone one stage further with the Concept 5 Gran Turismo set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

As with the X6, the appropriate response is to either beat your breast with outrage or launch into the customary paean of praise. As the opinions of the trade press are bound to be extreme, I will try to focus first of all on the facts.
