Recently BMW has shown the first photos of its new 1 Series coupe, and now we have a video clip of this new two-door baby Beemer.

This 2+2-seater will arrive towards the end of 2007 in South Africa in 135i and 120d guises.

The 1 Series coupe share styling cues with that of its hatchback sibling, but also takes after the 3 Series coupe.

Design elements include sweeping lines, a long bonnet, long wheelbase and large, frameless doors.

There is also an elaborately designed suspension with rear-wheel drive and an aluminium double-joint tiebar axle at the front, and a five-arm rear axle in lightweight steel.

Of course it comes packed with BMW gizmos such as Dynamic Stability Control including Dynamic Traction Control, energy-saving Electric Power Steering and Active Steering.
