The all-new BMW 3-Series GT has been recently caught testing on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
BMW’s 3-Series GT is no longer a rumor and with its larger brother, the 5-Series GT being one of the most unsuccessful model developed by the German based automaker, the 3-Series GT is expected to become a huge hit for the brand. The BMW 3-Series GT is one step closer to being officially revealed and the car company is currently testing it on the Nurburgring before finally launching it in showrooms across Europe.
The BMW 3-Series GT, which will be known as the F34, will have a simple hatch design rather than the twin trunk arrangement and, unlike its larger brother, this one will be sportier. The engine lineup in BMW’s 3-Series GT is expected to be carried over from the new generation of the 3-Series, the F30, including the four-cylinder turbo diesel unit found in the 320d, the four-cylinder petrol turbo found on the 328i and even the six-cylinder turbo found on the new 335i. Rumors are saying that all engines will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission in standard. The BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo should hit the market sometimes in 2013.
