More BMW 2-series cabrio / convertible spyshots

Entry-level cabrio with slim canvas top

Here are more pictures of the BMW 1-series Cabrio. These were snapped testing close to the firm’s new test-centre in northern Sweden. BMW-enthusiasts can look forward to the summer of 2007 when the small topless BMW will come to dealers – for relatively small cash. Different from its bigger brother, the future 3-series Coupé-Cabrio (CC), the open One will come with a conventional canvas top. The two different roof-systems will also distance the two cars price-wise, especially since the 3 series CC will make a jump upwards and hence will make room for this new cabrio based on the 1-series. Main characteristics of the new soft-top will be the flat windscreen and the low and coupé-like canvas roof. The boot promises to be big enough to carry all luggage for at least two passengers. As said, we expect the car to go on sale in 2007 – and to make the 1-series yet more popular, especially since neither Mercedes nor Audi will have a competing model ready by then. Power will come from the same range of engines as known from the five-door 1-series, and we expect diesel engines to be available, too.

That'd be a hot little cab if it looks like the red car!

Thanks but any photos of the coupe yet? That's what I'm really interested in :headbang: The 1er coupe I bet will be the closest thing to the E30 BMW has made since the E30 :smile:

Yea for sure, thats what we all are looking forward to I think. But the proportions of this convertable give a good idea to what the coupe would look like and I for one am loving it!!!!!

I am kind of curious as to why we are only seeing cabrio spy pics. I would have assumed we would be seeing the coupe pics first, seeing as they usually release the coupe first....Oh well, I would be happy if they just brought over the 3-door hatch.

Yea same here, that does make you think there may not be a coupe and the 3-door is as coupe as its going to get.

BUT, it could be a situation where the coupe just hasnt been cought by the photographers yet, but it is out there somewhere. With the new 3 series, there were times where we would see pics of the new 3 series convertable but not the coupe. Its all in the air for now until we see photographic proof I guess...

Hmmm, looks like different wheels, so it's not just more photos of the same one. The tires look like they are very low profile too, so this may be a sporty variation.

Encouraging. Thanks!

Sharp eye Gary...& you're right...I missed it.
Reminds me of the "turbine" style wheels on the Z4 sport. With a little BBS thrown in.
It is a recent posted pic from AutoBild...note the trees and shrubs in full leaf.

The roof does look "extra", however there is not much of a b-pillar there so I assume that is the convertable. Sharp looking wheels though, with nice wheel arches.

my opinion is that the last pic is a coupe with a cabrio roof to cover up some how it looks different.

Looking forward to that little convertible. In my eyes it'll become the legitime successor to the E30 cabrio.

Honestly, will be a very classy car...but very expensive as well...

Will certainly be great looking with the M-Sports package!!!
