But here ‘s the catch, it ‘s still fully camouflaged. Of course we all know the production version will mirror the “concept ” released last fall in Frankfurt so there ‘s little surprise here.

Look for the X1 to be available in Europe this fall and make it to the US by 2011. Engines will range from the typical small four cylinder diesel units (20 and 23d models) to the naturally aspirated sixes we ‘re all familiar. The latter will likely be marketed as the 28i.
