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!!

2017 BMW Concept Z4

August, 2017 § Leave a comment

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!

2016 BMW 2002 Hommage Concept

June, 2016 § Leave a comment

BMW has created this car to pay tribute to one of the most iconic models in its history: BMW 2002 turbo

This design re-imagines the old car with a sporting silhouette with compact proportions and a prominent “shark nose”. Aerodynamic like the large spoilers at the front and rear team up with the profusion of air intakes to promise a dynamic and agility sportive driving experience.

2012BMW i8 Spyder Concept

December, 2015 § 1 Comment

Spyder version of one of the most interesting cars that have arrived to the market during the last years:   2011 BMW i8.

I hope it finally reaches production. Remember the i8’s plug-in hybrid powertrain:  a 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. A combined maximum output of 362 PS (266 kW), it accelerates from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds with only  2.1 L/100 km (112 mpg US).

2015 BMW 3.0 CSL Homage

May, 2015 § Leave a comment

This car is a tribute to the ´70s 3.0 CSL, a timeless classic BMW Coupé. The original car (better known as the Batmobile), was an endurance racing legend in Spa and the Nürburgring.

I like this concept, it reinterpretates the original adding some gorgeous designs from the BMW i8. Also I like the rear winglet lights and the front lights that conjures up memories of the X-shaped headlamp stickers once used in long-distance racing.

1989 BMW Serie 8

One of my favourite 80’s cars, the 8 Series offered V12 or V8 engines.  I would like one 850CSi in my inexistent collection…  with  5.6 liters, 375 hp and four wheel steering.

2002 BMW Z4

In my opinion this is the best design by Chris Bangle for BMW, I also like the E60 5-Series, but this is a special car for me. Because I own one of these roadsters, following a line of past BMW roadsters such as the 315, 328, 507, Z1, Z8, and Z3.
