Rumors of a 3 Series GT variant in the same vein as the 5 Series GT (but obviously smaller) have been swirling for some time. In fact, if such a car was coming BMW would definitly keep the shape and proportions under the wraps for a very long time and would want to surprise the world. Here, a french magazine has tasked its photoshop artists to dream up what such a car could look like.
An amazing set of cars, settings, and photos are witnessed in this shoot. Featuring two Eurowerkz cars, including project R3DBULL by WSTO, the cars are shot among the various dream garages of Auto Motorplex, a garage condo complex for those whose passion has outgrown their own garages.
