a regular 1ser shark fin and even the fuel tank lid looks dull compared the cool looking one on the concept.... even the side mirrors look like they came from a regular 1st gen 1 series!! major let down who here would pay the reported 150000 Euros for a car that comes with a 1ser mirros???
and it looks like the gullwing fullglass doors are gone too (notice the crevice in front of the door) along with the gorgeous bonet lines above the front wheels. And are those production wheels or they just swapped them for testing??
It's a test mule. Most likely some of those parts aren't intended for the production model. Look at previous test mules for the M5 and 1M to see how they changed along the way to production.
