To support it’s return to the Tokyo autoshow in December after BMW’s 2009Hiatus. (the consensus is we will still be there , despite the tragedy) BMW M will showcase on something that is outgoing but a current M car. But is an Engineering Concept that will show the possibilities of how BMW M can progress in relation to a full lightweight concept in bodyshell and chassis in the future. Normally it's key principle is of course Motorsport, but it is about giving you an insight into future application within a road car. It is to showcase BMW Innovation but as well as materials used in today's M cars such as Aluminium , Magnesium , Thermo-Plastic and Carbon Fibre in key areas , but also using the ideas in greater capacity and the technology from the BMWi programme which is why BMW has invested in it's future . Mass volume production of CFRP will be able to filter through to BMW’s core product strategy. It is more of an “Engineering , Material Technology and Performance showcase” than a visual one. It wont make production though it is purely an idea lab. In a way Similiar to the Concept 1er Tii @ Tokyo 2007. it is not the 1M.
