BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept at BMW of San Francisco

They wouldn't tell us anything about it though. Not sure what they were showcasing it but BMW's head designer was accompanying the car. You can see him in the first picture behind the car.

The VED concept car has been rumored to be basis for an upcoming i100 / M100 car: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=414336

Yes, that is Mac OS. Yes, that is iTunes.

You can't see it very well, but in front the iDrive knob, there's another display.

Is it just me or is the Mac OS running i-drive one of the coolest things you've seen on a BMW recently?

Diesel + Electric would be a big winner. The cost is prohibitive for most automakers, but BMW has such a premium $$ due to their prestige, they could probably get away with it.

I would love to see the diesel lag compensated for by using instant torque of an electric motor!!

Funny how the screen on the dash shows iTunes...

Cheers!

Even though this will not be an actual model, its great to know that this is the direction BMW wants to take with design and engineering. I am curious and excited as to what BMW will put out 10, 20 years from now. I also occasionally think about the fact that the 335is I just bought might be my last gasoline internal combustion engine automobile, a bitter sweet transition which will be for the better.

You're not alone I'd love to see the next-gen iDrive completely done by Apple. Like Ford's Microsoft SYNC. But chances of that are probably the same as the next-gen M3 being a NA V8

Missed this one

But how is it that the lamest dealership in the Bay Area got to display this car? I guess because it is in SF.

Love the steering wheel, that would be sweet as a factory option for all Bimmers.

No, more chance to see next iDrive made by Apple, than next M3 with NA engine, whether V8 or I6.

It won't be using Apple OS for iDrive, BMW will be using Nokia & Intel's MeeGo OS

It's on a slight stop-over before heading to Los Angeles and Hollywood .
Like every aspiring star it is in town for it's first audition.

And in the running for a Silver-Screen debut next summer.
