dontblogaboutthis BMW – Click above for high-res image gallery

Yesterday we brought you a few strange images and even weirder videos showcasing an odd BMW. Today, more images have hit the web, proving this is more than a BMW 6 Series with skinny tires and a missing tailpipe. The car may be wearing 6 Series skin from the a-pillar back, but the front is a different animal. It appears to be similar to the face found on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept vehicle.

There are a lot of ways these "spy shots" can be perceived. The above image and the extremely quiet running sound from the clips certainly led us to believe this car is utilizing a new EfficientDynamics powertrain. This would mean the above mash-up mobile is powered by a 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder diesel as well as a pair of electric motors set on the axles.

A viral campaign complete with dark photographs of a mysterious vehicle? It must be auto show season! The Paris Motor Show is right around the corner and we hope someone BMW will be ready to spill their precision-engineered beans.

        Bring back the Hoff!

      Yeah that front end is total BMW concept car. From the sound of the video it sound electric, but it was going slow, and that exhaust is tiny. those rims look kinda cool though.

      if they drop the hood down like that -
      it makes me think there is no longer a combustion engine in there.

      it's like they restyled a 6 Series, taking full advantage of the lack of conventional motor.

      Judging by those skinny tires I'd say this thing doesn't have a whole lot of power to put to the ground. Hopefully they're just testing the diesel part of the powertrain.

      the six was butt ugly.... thank god they cancelled it. hopefully what ever this is it doesn't look anything like the 6.
      • 5 Years Ago
      New 8-series? Dear god, I hope so. Maybe it'll be a Porsche 918 fighter, hybrid and all.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Well, we won't get to call it a pig anymore...

      That tail pipe better be emitting water vapor.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes, water vapor is a part of the emissions of any ICE motor.

      Am I the only one who thinks this looks like the current model Honda Accord Coupe?
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's got that same ugly rear end as the current 6-series. It makes me want to throw up. GOD DAMMIT BANGLE.

      i bet they're trying to break the distance travelled on a single gallon / litre of fuel / tank of gas. all the captions on the site seem to indicate that it's traveling from one point to another.

      highly efficient car doing something top secret so when / if they achieve their goal they can brag that their tech is most efficient.

      baby turbo diesel generator running electric motors. they highlighted all this stuff when the ED concept came out, now they're doing it for real.
