Nice find!

BMW are getting even sneakier now though. As well as fitting swirly camouflage, it is now fitting it to dummy bodies it seems. Just look at the unfinished sills, the gaps around the tops of the doos, and the hastily cut exhaust outlets in the rear bumper.

I think they have also applied this tactic to the current protoypes for the next 1-series too. Double layered disguises seems to be the way forward :)

It clearly has a fake body under the camo.

And even the DLO seems to close to the current generation to be totally credible.

From the rear looking at the roof you can clearly see what appears to be the current car cut and widened which begs the question of whether some size repositioning is going to happen to make the 1 Series viable in NA as something other than a cramped variant of the 3 Series for 3 Series prices. It would be great if BMW scrapped the 1 Series as is and went with an FWD/AWD architecture and resurrected the 2002 name. What an icon it remains!
