BMW 1-series Coupé (2012) spy video

Published: 18 January 2010

On Friday we brought you spy photos of the new BMW 1-series Coupé due in 2012. Now we've got some long-lens spy video footage of the engineering test hack, sliding around during winter testing.

Just goes to show that all this cold-weather testing isn't all hard slog; we can't imagine those engineers not enjoying some sideways fun on ice, as they slide around a frozen lake hidden deep in some Scandinavian test facility. All in the name of calibrating those ESP algorithms naturally.

Read our original scoop story here; and watch the snatched spy video footage in our video player below.
