Even BMW engineers aren ‘t immune to traffic laws. Worldcarfans brings us the first clear shots of the forthcoming F20 1 Series with the M Sport package as it was stopped by the polizei near Munich. The five door F20 hatch won ‘t be coming to the US but that doesn ‘t mean it ‘s not a hugely important car for BMW. This of course will be first of the next generation 1 Series when it debuts later this summer. It will usher in a vastly improved interior, upgraded engines and a much wider array technology not typically found in small cars (think 5 Series).
A couple of interesting things you can see in the photo above. For one the front clip has three functional air intakes. It looks like there are two closer to the center for brakes and one on the right side (on this car at least) that is tied to cooling the engine. It ‘s a similar to what BMW uses on many of it ‘s turbo-charged cars and more specifically to the current 135i.
It also looks great. Take the fake headlight covers off (meant to look larger than they are) and you start to quickly see a more taut and athletic looking 1 Series hatch. We can ‘t wait.
