Remember the BMW Active Hybrid Tourer from the 2012 Paris Motor Show? Neither did I.
It could have to do with it being one of the silliest BMW concepts in years, but with the Bavarian icon chasing every niche segment that isn't nailed down, what do you expect?
It appears that the AHT will be seeing production as what Autocar is calling the 1-Series GT. Considering every other GT BMW has produced has had limited success -- actually, no success -- things aren't looking so good; however, maybe it will surprise everyone?
The changes are consistent with the design of the Active Hybrid Tourer concept seen at the Paris show in September.
BMW appears to have redesigned the forthcoming 1-series GT since the last test cars were seen on the streets of Munich earlier this year. These pictures of the car show a vehicle with a new glasshouse, incorporating a front quarterlight missing from the original vehicles, and a more steeply rising waistline.
