What a great handling car!-It has real presence even with the mule cladding. I'm going to take a flying leap and guess it's got the inline-6
just from the unmistakeable burbling noise of the engine when it's exiting the corners & (later) pulling into traffic.

Nice!
Hope we'll hear something official about the 2 series in the near future.

This blurb is from the UK magazine AutoExpress who are also showing the clip on their web-site.


The small, topless BMW 1-Series Cabrio is filmed on a disguised test drive in Nurburgring Germany


Forget the heavy disguising – here are early pictures of the BMW 1-series Cabrio.

It’s really coming, and we snapped it testing on the challenging German Nurburgring. BMW-enthusiasts can look forward to the summer of 2007 when the small topless BMW will come to the dealers.

Different from its bigger brother, the metal-roofed 3-series Coupe-Cabrio, the open One will come with a conventional canvas top. 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 competition 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.


I think there's a bit of hyperbole going on here...AutoExpress didn't "snap it". This is a professionally produced clip from Auto-Media...the same one that Harold's posted

I seriously hope that is really the coupe with a top slapped on :drinking:.

Anyways, good video, though I certainly noticed a good amount of body roll....

Great video. This thing looks great in motion, I love how tight the car looks with the wheels pushed out to almost the ends of the front and rear bumpers leaving little overhang.

The convertible looks like it actually has wider fender flares than the coupe pics we saw? Is there some kind of "fat suit" disguise on the car in this video?
