And now, we do not have to wait any longer for one because the German automaker has released official pictures of the M135i concept which will premier at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month.

Just take one good look at the M135i and anyone could see that the car shows much qualities of a BMW M Performance vehicle. The car’s body design is not only sporty looking but it also looks youthful, probably the company wants to attract more potential younger buyers in this market segment.
