BMW'S ANNOUNCEMENT overnight that it would be withdrawing from Formula 1 at the end of this season to focus on greener pursuits, has now been followed by confirmation that the luxury marque will reveal a green sports car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

BMW Development board member Dr Klaus Draeger has confirmed today that the German carmaker will unveil a "sustainable and environmentally compatible" sports car in September, with styling expected to follow the lines of last year's popular BMW Homage concept.
