The spy photographers over at CAR have published a video of what they refer to as the next generation 1er. We all know that it really is the ///M prototype of the current E82 1 series coupe.

The engine will be based on the current N55 inline six and is rumored to produce 350 hp thanks in no small part to a trick ///M plumbing system and an additional turbo. This car will be displayed sometime in 2010 as a “concept “, and we are placing our bets it will bow at the upcoming Geneva show in March. Worth noting is that the exhaust seems to have a nice throaty sound while also sounding like the engine can rev fairly well.
