BMW 1-Series Performance Studie Concept

2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

Seen for the first time without any camouflage, the BMW 1-Series has never looked better.

BMW's 1-Series sedan has always had a few peculiar design spots that gave the car a bit of an off-center look. The new 1-series Performance Studie Concept has just been shot at a dealer's meeting that was supposed to have been private. Well the new design has been leaked thanks to some photos that have been shot by one of the attendees. Also known as the 2012 BMW 1-Series Hatchback M Sport Package, the Studie Concept could be BMW's internal designation for the car.

After seeing the spy photos a little over a week ago, we can see the full new bodykit and it looks very well done. It features new side skirts, front grille, bumpers and a nice paintjob containing two racing stripes. The car sits on a set of 19-inch wheels. No information has been confirmed for performance changes, although you can be sure BMW has done some work under the hood. The 1-Series Performance Studie could make its official debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show next month in Germany. Photos courtesy of 1Addicts.
