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 § Leave a 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.

2013 BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe

An interesting experiment… ¿What do you get if we mix BMW and Pininfarina? The result is a nice coupe that perhaps show us how the new BMW cars look.

Also always is interesting to compare drawings with the final result.

1988 BMW Z1

August, 2013 § Leave a comment

BMW has started to manufacturate roadsters again in 1999. This nice Z1 is the first open two-seater since the gorgeous 1956 BMW 507.

The Z1 it’s only the first of the new 90’s saga. It’s not very well known (only 8000 examples were built) but it’s the father of Z3, Z4 or Z8.  I wonder if the Z name came from the multi-link rear suspension called “Z Axle“.

Look at the doors! They retract vertically down into the car’s body instead of swinging outward or upward.
