BMW UK Ltd sold its first vehicle just over 31 years ago and they have surpassed the two millionth car mark. The two millionth car is a BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo sold to Ken Hayes from Wolverhampton. Ken said “I’m delighted to find out I’m the two million man for BMW. The BMW 530d Gran Turismo is the perfect car for me as I like the space, versatility and high standard specification. I run an engineering business under my own name and being able to have a luxury car that allows for large items in the boot is the perfect combination.”
The first BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo was introduced in the UK at the end of 2009; nearly 2500 models have been sold with the 530d GT proving the most popular.
The BMW 5 series Gran Turismo is now being offered with enhanced standard specification. All models now come with the BMW Professional Navigation System, BMW Assist, electrically front seats with driver memory, voice control, and xenon headlights with headlight wash and remote tailgate operation as standard. There is the option of a rear view camera and a choice of the car being a four or five seater as you can either have a rear bench or two individual back seats.
