The video appears to have been shot on Munich's Schleißheimer Straße, close to BMW Headquarters.
A new spy video showing the 2012 BMW 3-Series surfaced earlier today. The 30-second clip shows the company's prototype while waiting to take a turn at an intersection.
The 2012 BMW 3 Series is expected to be introduced in 2011, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It will likely debut with several six-cylinder engines, and possibly a small, turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol unit. Some rumors have persisted claiming that a hybrid version of the car will show up in a few markets. Speculation also suggests the car may have a lighter weight, while getting a longer wheelbase.
Unfortunately, BMW is keeping their cars close to their vest with the 3er development. The video shows a vehicle with the same amount of camouflage as the one spied in weeks past. With the same five-point wheels, the only item distinguishing the prototypes is the number plate. At least we are able to hear the engine's growl.
The next generation BMW M3 will appear a year later.
