From what I remember SCOTT saying, this was suppposed to be built on the same LWB version of the chassis that the 3er Li in China is. But in looking at the pictures, it is hard to judge whether this is the case or not. It doesn't really look like a longer wheel base than the standard F30 sedan.
It will be interesting to see if they bring this to the US. The 5GT obviously does not sell terribly well here, and we already know they are going to bring the F31 wagon in addition to the sedan, whereas the 5GT was sort of meant to replace the 5 series wagon in the US. So is there room for the 3GT too?
