With everyone waiting on the official release of the new Z4, BMW’s new concept, PAS, short for Progressive Activity Sedan, has made an appearance again. In comparison to the spy shots we have seen a couple of weeks ago, the test mule seemed to have dropped a little tiny bit of camo tape off the headlights and changed the wheels style.
Other than that, everything is the same, consistent with BMW’s effort to use fake body panels that conceail the real shape and design.
What we know so far about the PAS? The five door crossover, as we heard recently, the BMW PAS will be marketed as a model between the 2010 BMW 5 Series and the 7 Series, of course, importing many design cues from the recently revealed BMW 7 Series. The twin-turbo 3.0 liter and the a twin-turbo V8 will be available, along with an EfficientDynamics engine, most likely the 3.0 liter diesel.
Pricing? Not cheap, expect the BMW PAS to sell at a premium price, similar to the X6.
If our sources are correct, and they were many times, we should see the first concept by January 2009.
Thanks for the tip Palbay!
