The interwebs are on fire today over a photo of the new BMW 1 Series F20 apparently leaked by German magazine Autobild. The usual suspect aka BMW insider Scott27 launched this rumor in the BMW community and the photo is slowly starting to spread around.

Unfortunately, while the photo is very close to the real deal, the supposedly leaked 1 Series is nothing more than a rendering. The details indeed reveal more how the final product will look like, but there are some subtle design cues missing from the image.

We’re assuming that Autobild has somehow seen the new 1 Series already and used the visual details to draw the rendering.

Autobild leaked the new BMW 1 Series? No. Just a rendering

The new 2012 BMW 1 Series Hatchback will be revealed this summer and will make its world debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. At launch time we suspected the new 1er will be using a range of three and four-cylinder engines, but latest information reveal that the F20 1 Series will debut with four-cylinder bangers only. The 116i and 118i will be powered by a new four-cylinder turbocharger, while the 116d and 118d will make use of diesel powerplants.

Our sources also indicate that the LED signals made their way onto the side mirrors, an interesting move by BMW and likely followed by future models.

Stay tuned for more information from Autobild in the upcoming days!

    It’s a rendering…or painted over a picture… Its so lame that everyone can see it. Infact, those magazines that make those pictures and create those stupid rumors, lol….they are total morons for doing this in such a lame way!
    They might have some close hits on the design but NEVER EVER they had the true thing! BMW aways keeps is secret to the last point, at witch BMW will show it – not some dumb ass Auto magazine…

      It’s a rendering but it is copied from an official picture , right down to the overall position of the car , and the Vermillion Red color.

    I would imagine the headlights to be different… pitty, though, as they look unique and different – in a good way.

    Can’t wait!

    I certainly have no doubt it will drive better than the Audi A3, however, I would hope BMW challenges Audi in the exterior department for the segment of cars.

    well, it’s is exactly the same kind of a setting BMW uses on their BMW Mediapool pictures. It lookes like a leaked picture to me…

      So let me say it again: it is based on an official photo, yes, they probably have the original shot but they are under embargo, so they decided to go with a rendering that is very very close to the real deal. But nonetheless, it’s a rendering.
