We'll admit now, there are a lot of variables in this one, but what you are looking at could very well be the all-new BMW 1 Series GT. This image has been leaked by Auto.Blog.rs (a Serbian site of no relation to our own), who apparently got their hands on the next cover of Germany's Auto Bild, set to hit stands Friday, September 14. According to the report, the vehicle is named Active Sports Tourer Concept, but would likely take up the 1 Series GT if it goes into production.

F20 Addicts also picked the story up (there is apparently a lot of interest surrounding this). The BMW fan site points out the image lacks the telltale signs of photoshopping. So, either its a really good PS, or this is the real deal. The 1 Series GT, or at least the "production-ready concept," is set to debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month.

The new 1 Series GT will supposedly ride on a front-wheel drive platform, shared with new Mini models and will be powered by a four-cylinder engine. According to the Serbian site, hybrid and all-electric powertrains are also in the vehicle's future.

      Watching BMW self destruct is not fun.

      This looks terrible compared to the V40 and A Class.

      Too much going on for that little sheet metal. If they toned it down, it would have worked. Don't matter, BMW fans will swear it's the bomb.

      Looks like a BMW version of the V40.

        Well yes it's a hatchback... Honestly don't see the resemblance all. V40 is better looking car though.

      After seeing the new V40 R-Design pics today this thing looks hideous.

      With the styling of this and many other BMW's leaving a lot to be desired it's no wonder that Audi is threatening it's reign as luxury car champ. And it's even more in Audi's favour when you look at interiors, well all except the stunning new digs in the 6 Series.
