Arrow Dontblogaboutthis BMW Mystery Car Takes on New Form

As expected, the dontblogaboutthis BMW Mystery Car has a new look. Up until now it has been in a randomly thrown-together looking VED+6-series form. The look we're looking at is the form that this concept car may take at a possible unveiling at the 2010 Paris Motor Show next week (albeit without the camouflage scheme). It's been rumored that the car could feature multiple electric engines or 3-cyilnder diesel.

Whether or not this hybrid concept car is unveiled at the Paris Motor show, its next showing (either via another video or at the show) seems to be September 30, which coincidentally is the first press day of the Paris Motor Show.

i feel that this music is very appropriate for this vehicle/ sneak peek presentation.. there is something very mystical about it... keep up the suspense.. front end is looking aggressive as well from what can be seen of it...

That depends on your understanding of a super car.

True. It's fascinating that they could keep most of that stunning front end for the working concept car. I was afraid they'd have to change more about the front end than adding a lower center air intake.

I'd rather it looked like the M1 Hommeage, but I think anyone that is expecting anything different to the front of the VED is mistaken

Here we go jason lets end the whole thing right here with this photo. so obvious its the Vision concept, why would they hide it if we've seen it already
you can see the front clearly has the same design as the Vision and the mirror location under the cover matches the Vision concept.

As usual, great skills. The Vision Concept has some features that are not feasible for the possible production version. So, while I was excited to see the front end being taken over from the Vision car, the side profile and the rear might be quite different. For example, there's no way the all-glass doors would make it into production.

Many people try to comprehend what kind of concept this is?
They keep coming up with the wrong conclusion.

It is not a car that has competition, there never has been a car like this.
This is pure BMW which means it does not play catch up because others have high performance concepts BMW have no interest in.

It's a full working prototype using all of it's intended technology. battery power , 3 cylinder diesel etc...

- The car goes and stops like it was promised it would over a year ago.

It is no longer a Vision... This is reality. Welcome to Tomorrow.

Updated with more info:

We are in the middle of doing late night filming here at the BMW Welt on both this and the 6er Concept.

Both cars will be revealed on the 30th september , although selected journalists have driven the full running car at BMW's Miramas facility a few weeks ago so the embargo ends next week so there will be exclusive driving reports to salivate over.

It's a very interesting car, it is not a sports car rival aimed at the R8? It is a lot more than that, it's a concept that BMW want to prove that with future legislation there will be BMW's like this on the roads of tomorrow.

The car will be shown on the 29th at BMW's "Efficient Dynamics" night on the eve of the Paris show.

The upcoming MegaCity Vehicle which in one way is possibly BMW's answer to the MINI Clubman including similar rear hinged doors for passenger entry. Will probably be (well,as I see it) the most important car of the decade.

The rendition is the closest to the MegaCity Vehicle. and it gives the conclusion of how well this project has been cleverly thought out.

The MegaCity Concept car will be unveiled at next years IAA in Frankfurt alongside the production version of the BMW Active Hybrid 5.
