Skimpy tease for BMW's X1

2009-06-18 07:52
BMW has released this teaser image of its all-new X1, but there's no need to rub your eyes - it's meant to look like a fuzzy extra on the set of Baywatch.

Plenty of spy pics and teaser images have already done the rounds, but this is BMW's latest attempt to woo the younger, body beautiful set.

We expect the X1 to have a mix of petrol and turbodiesel derivatives, including the xDrive18i and xDrive18d entry level models and the xDrive20d, the more potent 150-kW xDrive23i and a range-ropping xDrive28i.

Those keen on more details of the SAV will not have much longer to wait. X1 will be showcased at September's Frankfurt Motor Show, although more details and images will emerge before then.

The vehicle was shown in concept form at last year's Paris Motor Show.
