Spy shots: 1-series cabrio coming to Geneva in '08

The recently uncovered BMW 1-Series is sure to inject additional sales volume and revenue into the luxury car juggernaut Bavarian Motor Werks. The folks over at Carscoop captured a canvas-topped mini-Bimmer when nobody was looking, and the resulting shots prove that a topless 1-Series will join the budding lineup. The move makes sense because retractable top BMWs tend to sell well, they demand a price premium, and they just look good. BMW decided on a cloth top as the material of choice, no doubt because of cost and weight concerns, as well as to minimize the impact on the smallish trunk. Expect the 1-Series cabrio to bow at Geneva in 2008, just before BMW's smallest ride goes live.
