there is also a good chance the wheels are stand ins, they dont match the rest of the car at all.

Yea obviously those wheels are for transport. they will most likely put larger wheels to fit the fenders. They probably didn't want the large wheels and tires touching the body while it was in transit from bouncing around. That's my guess.

Other manufacturers have effectively taken the BMW design element and applied it to their own products it is right that BMW effectively keep the look but progress it that it stands far from the immitators.

GT

Based on Scott26's comments it's probably the new 6 series GT....

"The car is a four door and you are looking at a further addition to our progressive series the GT. "

The Sports GT in Progressive Movement :
The BMW 6er .

Or the new 3 series GT...........either way I like it...........

More like a squashed X6 with the suspension still intact (judging by how high it is off the ground)

Luckily the car under the plastic doesn't need side mirrors. BMW is going to introduce driver-ESP that will guide you without looking...
