After an unconfirmed leak of what appeared to be an official BMW document today, BMW has officially revealed pricing for the 2010 BMW 550i Gran Turismo. Starting at $64,725, the pricing puts the car just above the top-end of the 5-Series sedans, but about $15,000 below the entry-level 7-Series.
That's a pretty understandable place for a car that shares 5-Series overall size with a 7-Series standard wheelbase and blends many of the amenities and features between the two. As we noted in our recent 2010 550i GT test drive, the car often comes off as more 7-Series than 5, especially in the realm of rear seat room and interior styling.
European delivery customers can expect to save about $4,500 off sticker by picking the car up in Munich, meaning those with some cash in hand can justify the expense of a European vacation.
Pricing still hasn't been announced for the upcoming 535i, which will employ the new single-turbo six-cylinder engine, but it should slot somewhere below the 550i, meaning it would probably parallel pricing of the current 5-Series Touring model, which starts at $55,800.
