Although we don't get to see the actual vehicle in this driving footage, there is a teaser of a portion of the car at the very end of the clip, which looks like it may be a part of the rear portion of the car.






More details to be released on this concept on Sunday August 30, 2009 on BMW's site :

That's why it's called a "teaser" To generate buzz and anxiety and make you want to see more and more!

That looked to me like the right tail light for a future concept...you can sort of see what im talkin about with the rear windsheild in the background...the little curved red thing was the brake light lit up...my opinion...might as well take a guess
