Personally I reckon this will be just about be the production car.

If it is then it's not as dramatic as in the pictures from California earlier in the year.

It gets my vote for looks - but I probably won’t buy!

So I bought a 35is with all the toys to play with. :thumbsup:

That was a concept though Rick, albeit approx 80% of the finished production car according to the blurb. Hence why I think this will be pretty damn close to the final version.

I think if I suggested buying another car like that after an all new 35is Aug last year there would be one almighty argument !

It is the rear I would want to see, as with the E89 they ran out of ideas there.

X5M - 575 hp of fun in a V8
Abarth 595 Comp.
Golf Clipper - collectors item
Jeep
