BMW Concept 1-Series tii to Make North American Debut in Chicago

It debuted at the Tokyo motor show last October. Now, the BMW 1-Series concept that lit a magnesium fire in our naughty bits is coming to Chicago. Officially, it's the BMW Concept 1-Series tii; unofficially, it's several shades of Teutonic radness. Let me count the ways: It recalls the heady days of mid-period BMW road racing, evokes the original (E30) M3 and cribs its halo from the early '70s BMW 2002 tii. Sure, we found out last week one can accessorize one's way into a similar vee-hickle, but it's not quite this. Now we may even find out what the concept has under the hood. Special thanks to the Quandt family for stringing us along that much further. [via EDBMW]
