This past weekend I stopped by a local Dunkin Donuts for a late coffee break near my house in New Jersey. While pulling in, I noticed a brand-new 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo parked right in front of me. I got out and started taking a look around the car and the black stickers that were covering the BMW badges. As a car enthusiast, I was pretty excited to see a new BMW model on U.S. soil that wouldn’t hit our dealerships until spring 2010.
The owner, a BMW engineer, eventually came out and started talking to me (of course he probably thought I was going to touch the car and wanted to keep it safe). After exchanging a couple of words about our respective occupations, the engineer gave me a little tour around the car. To say the least I became pretty envious of his job after he told me he was pushing a 4.4L V8 twin-turbo engine under the hood. Either way, I managed to take this one picture of the 5-Series Gran Turismo before he pulled away.
To be completely honest – pictures don’t do this car justice. It looks much better in person.
