2017 BMW Concept 8 Series

August, 2017 § Leave a comment

The second gorgeous concept from BMW this summer.  A new 8 Series…  I’m so happy, because Z family and 80’s 8 Series are my favourites BMW’s ever and now they are recreating both.

A bold change on the brand’s signature kidney grille, not rounded, not flat… just sharp and sportive. A nice car, with lines flowing in a “Barcelona Gray Liquid” coloured body.   From the back, the 8 Series has i8 shaped lights and a rear spoiler molded into the trunk lid that we’ve discovered in 2000 6 Series from Chris Bangle and that has become a kind of brand signature.

Thanks Adrian van Hooydonk for let us enjoy these concepts, but please, make it real models, without so many changes, please!!

After years of boring X3, X5… series 7, 5, 1…  Active Tourer…. BMW is waking up!  Here you have a bold and nice design, the new Z4 roadster.

Matte paint finish in Frozen Energetic Orange this gorgeous car has sharper grille design, headlights so different form nowadays BMW’s car and a nice L-shaped taillights resembling BMW i8.   Z models (Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8) always have been about loooong hood, not this car… with a shorter one, moving the driver to the center.

And this nice concept doesn’t come alone! It has two nice brother concepts: X2 Concept and 8 Series Concept.  BMW welcome again to gorgeous cars world!  We’ve missed you!

Fell in love with this prototype from Infiniti.  A gorgeous experiment of applying Infiniti design language in a 30-40’s race car.   Look the double-arch grille, the long tail and the wonderful wire wheels.  Pure grey silver beauty.

1925 Rolls Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe

July, 2017 § Leave a comment

Custom coachbuilding of the 1920s and 1930s was the ultimate form of self-expression for the rich and famous. Jonckheere Carrossiers of Belgium re-bodied a 1925 Phantom I. They dared to modify the traditional Rolls-Royce vertical grill. And also they added rounded doors! and a nice bullet-shaped headlights. Unfortunately the Jonckheere records were destroyed in a fire and it remains unknown who commissioned or designed this one-off masterpiece with just one objective: to impress all who see it. Enjoy this 6-cyl 102hp gorgeous car.

A huge hood, powerful proportions for this deep red beauty!  Mercedes said: “reinterpretation of classic aero-coupes”, I say: “you have to become real this incredible concept!”

You are expecting a V12… but guys, these days belongs to Watts:  It has a 738-horsepower electric engine.
