All sources indicate that the release of official images of this car will happen very shortly. Until then here is another spy shot to keep your palate ready for the main course, so stay tuned!

We also wanted to reiterate that since this version of the car will be built in Regensburg, Germany it will be the newest addition to the European Delivery program, and fill the spot the X3 will eventually vacate. So for a while there will be one more model available than currently. Initially it (like all new models) will come out of the dealers allocation of cars rather than the Euro Delivery allocation pool.

Pricing numbers have been rumored to be a modest increase to a huge jump placing it right alongside the Mercedes Benz SLK or Porsche Boxster. We can see the base model coming in around the low $40,000s and the show stopper loaded to the gills exceeding sticker on the normally equipped Boxster. This car will blend several niche markets and bring a great deal of new technology to the party, all of which add to the cost. Official numbers will not be released until right before the car hits the showrooms; notice we still do not have official word on the new 7 or even the 335d.
