West Coast Deubt of the 3 Series GT and More From BMW
May 13th, 2013
West Coast Debut of the 335i 3 Series GT

Bimmerfest 2013 will be the first place on the west coast that you will be able to see the upcoming BMW 3 Series GT. The 335i Gran Turismo edition will be on display in the BMW booth near the main stage throughout the day. The 3 Series GT sits 7.9 inches longer and 3.2 inches taller than the 3 Series Sports Wagon version giving the driver a 4.3 inch longer wheelbase. The proportions keep you thinking it is a 3 Series when you see the car with some interesting additions like the active rear spoiler that reduces lift at highway speeds -- the first BMW to implement such a feature.

In addition to the 3 Series GT, BMW will also have some other hard to find cars on display including:
  • Frozen Blue ALPINA B7
  • Frozen Silver M6 Convertible
  • Fire Orange M3 Lime Rock Park Edition
