After Nissan’s announcement of the Land Glider prototype, which will make its premiere in 2009 Tokyo Motor Show later this month, BMW surprised us today with the presentation of an unprecedented, three-wheeler concept, which will take place concurrently with other special exhibits at the Bavarian carmaker Museum.
The unit is all levels and angles, and looks pretty frackin ‘cool. It leans into corners like a motorcycle, and despite seeing very little, BMW promises that the thing has seating in a 3-series.

His seat fighter looks are not just for show either – with a drag of 0.18 and a weight of only 992 pounds, this bad boy is able to exploit a small internal combustion engine and electric motor to pull up the Autobahn up to 124 miles per hour. The concept vehicle was created in 2005 called simply, an acronym of the project named “A sustainable and innovative mobility product for the low energy”.

The concept is currently being exhibited at the BMW museum in Munich, but if you can not make it over to Germany right now, is there a video for you after the break.
