BMW Abu Dhabi is back once again. Almost every week, the Middle East-based dealership unveils a special project which takes production series BMWs to a new level.

The plug-in hybrid is shown with 21-inch AC Schnitzer rims and also bearing aerodynamic components from Aachen, which are carried out in clear-coated carbon.
