The psychadelic equiped camo'd next generation BMW 1- Series (chassis code F20) was seen in early December starting out cold weather testing and now a month later continues heavy testing.

Not much is known about the next generation 1-series, but what is known is that BMW sees this car as a core vehicle to its lineup in the future. Potentially, this car would be as important to them as the 3-series and so similar coupe and sedan variants are on the table. Even a stretched wagon varient has been rumored at one point. And don't forget the recent rumblings (make that guarantees) about an ///M variant arriving for the current 1-series, it seems a sure shot that the F20 will also see an M1 variant. Good times are certainly ahead for the 1-series lineup.

What is known so far about this car? Well, it has been aluded that this car will see a new front end design that will be unique compared to the rest of the cars in the BMW lineup as well as possibly using larger foglamps at the front similar to the Z2 sketches. There will likely also be LED headlights up front. Beyond that, what we can garner from these spypictures is that surprisingly, the general shape of the body and trunk will remain very similar to the current car, which IMO is a good thing. I for one, love the atheletic overall shape of the current 1-series.
