E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Maybe I'm the only one who sees the resemblance. Every time I see a 1 coupe I think it looks like the German army helmet. Short, stubby, and rounded.

Sorry. I'm not seeing the resemblance....but it's an interesting thought. Might have been a derivitive of the same designer. Germans never throw anything away.
