New BMW 3 series spy shots

Caught on camera recently, this heavily camouflaged vehicle seems to be the new 2012 BMW 3 series. And while this is obviously only a prototype, the overall state of the car indicates that the new 3 series will be ready for production even sooner than it was expected.
As you can see in the pictures below, there are some indications about the front and rear designs and as a glitch, the rear bumper look quite similar to the one found on the actual 5 series.
From official releases we already know that the new 3 series will have a lengthened wheelbase that will grow to about 2.8 meters long and this will allow BMW to widen the car making the ride a lot more comfortable. On the other hand, the new BMW car will feature under the hood either a 1.6 l 148 hp turbo unit or a 2.0 l 242 hp turbo engine. Also, for the ones who sometimes feel the need for speed there is a 3.0 l 320 hp turbocharged engine that will really move the car.
Of course nothing is 100% official yet but as you can see from the pictures taken by the guys over at worldcarfans, the wait will end soon enough.
