BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo Creates New Segment

Every once in a while, an automaker will create something so unique and revolutionary, a new automotive niche is created. This is exactly the case for the 5 Series Gran Turismo. The interesting feature lies at the rear where a standard lid opens to reveal the trunk. This can then be further opened to reveal a double-pane liftgate, much like a 3 or 5 door hatchback, thus creating full access to the entire car.
