This is part of the front bumper of a new model. Possibly the 3 series GT concept.

It's not the 3 gt, looks too sporty... Not the f80 is it?

This is displaying the area between the wheels. There is no seam where the sheetmetal fender would meet the composite bumper. Also, consider the brake rotor location.

I recall the "Concept Active Tourer" having some vents on the side. They are in the doors, but perhaps they've beeen moved for the production "1 Series GT".

For some here I see this being tantamount to mental torture.

Finally they got it. I was beginning to wonder...

I believe it is actually displaying the area rear of the rear wheels and the gloss black piece is on the rear bumper

Right, the caliper location is the giveaway that the black plastic piece is near the door of the vehicle, not part of the front bumper.

Just like the F12/F13/F06 have a kink in the fender behind the front wheels, I guessing the F32/F33 will as well. This seems more aggressive, being that it has black molding.

Can I add to the teasing process?

First clue...

It's an FEP car.

So, you must also believe that the rear brakes have a rear-mounted caliper, and that the rear bumper is made of sheetmetal and is indeed integrated with the rear fender.

I am having a lot of trouble believing this is the case.

The CAT also has this "kink" if we are talking about the same thing. But, it also had precious little space between the wheel and door opening, decreasing the liklihood that this picture could be related to the produciton version of that vehicle.

I do tend to agree now, after studying various pics, that this character line shown is more likely to be behind the front fender rather than in front of the rear. Thus I am convinced this is most probably a shot the front wheel.
