With the new BMW X3 being shown at the Paris auto show in September 2010 its not surprising we're starting to see almost full exposed test vehciles running around Munich and the Autobahn.

Quote:
CAR Online reader Kenneth Valenca has grabbed some tasty spy shots and video of the new 2011 BMW X3. He was driving along the A3 autobahn between Nuremberg and Wurzberg this week when he spotted a camouflaged SUV roaring up behind him in the fast lane.

Kenneth, who's a civilian working for the US Army in Grafenwohr, deserves a pat on the back for his hastily grabbed video of the X3, which you can watch in our player below. It's an appropriately American-German scoop the X3 will be built in BMW's US plant, instead of Magna Steyr in Austria where the current model is assembled.

BMW is likely to show the new X3 at the 2010 Paris motor show this autumn, before sales start at the end of the year. It'll nudge slightly upmarket to put more space between it and the X1 it's a bit bigger and more comfortable than today's X3, which has never quite taken off in the minds of critics, although BMW has sold more than half a million units globally.
