And all to be shown next week at Frankfurt.

Btw... the motorcycle is most probably an e-scooter. Like the one shown at Villa d'Este at Lake Como this year.

I don't know what the first car is, presumably it's the unknown electric model (i5, electric 3, whatever) but whatever it is, it's definitely not the Concept 8 Series. The Concept 8 Series was later, between the Concept X7 and the Concept Z4. I didn't see an i8 Roadster. Also had no idea how big the Phantom was. I thought maybe it was a truck pulling a trailer, or two cars under one tarp. That sucker is huge.

Ok, that's possible too, yes. That was the one I was least sure of.

However, we weren't expecting an M8 reveal in Frankfurt. Could it perhaps be the M8 GTE race car?

This shot here you can definitely see the lower portion of this first car in the video, wheel design, the dark shaded areas look like they could be the blue portion of an i car. Bet its has the blue white color combo like the original i8 and i3 had.

I say definitely new concept i car is the first in video

They did say that they would release the new full electric sedan that will be distributed in 2019 during September. Is this the right show? They originally theorized they canned the i5 for a full electric 3 series.

You might be right.
No side mirrors either.
Must be something futuristic.

I believe the #1 is not 8/m8. Its the i5/i5 concept.

I came to a conclusion that the i5 will be inspired by Vision Next 100 concept.

Look at these pics, hope you can see what I can see.

I think you (and the others who've made the same suggestion) are probably correct. Those were my quick initial guesses, but I no doubt didn't get everything perfect.

Based on other sources, it also appears that the JCW GP is a concept and not a production vehicle.
