Stunning.

In addition to their many other qualities, this design shows BMW remains firmly committed to technical and engineering innovation. This is a win on many levels.

A very pleasant surprise this afternoon for sure. Well done.

The three cylinder turbo diesel is in very fact a reality coming to the F20 BMW 1er , Three Cylinder in both Petrol and Diesel , Turbo charged of course. But our playing card for the Active Hybrid 1 will be something similar again three cylinder turbo diesel connected to an electric motor. And available a few months after the initial debut of the F20. That is how far BMW are ahead.

As for other areas? Well the design is a hybrid of what is coming in future design trends for BMW. For instance the front of the car is highly reminiscient of the next generation 6er although with conventional shaped light units but the grille is almost identical , wide and stretching across the car.

The shape of the bonnet which is raised over the front wheel arches will be seen in the Z2 Roadster and Coupe as will a shape similar to the rear light unit of the VED. Concept although the lights will not be razor thin but more proportionate to the compactness of the car. And although they will not sit on the rear deck like the Concept they are pushed into the body work as if it was made of butter.

The shape itself if you shrink it down is highly identical to the previous unseen Z technik concept which is the predecessor to the Z2 Coupe. The interior and door cappings are conceptized from the 6er and the four up seating gives a clue to the 6er GT in terms of layout and space and that console that seperates the driver and the three passengers. If you look down from above , especially the rear deck where it splits if you imagine that as complete joined you will get an impression again of the Z2 it will have a typical BMW Z4 Coupe like rear window . The wheels although covered to assist with aerodynamics , if you remove the black covers you see a real sporty wheel for the next 6er it's a bit like a shuriken (throwing star for non-ninja members) But we will offer the aerodynamic wheels as an optional choice.

The technology and materials are not far off away. Closer than you think.
M Division will be the first to use aluminium chassis as well to really bring the weight down on our more core M models and of course our future "Compact" models as well as more emphasis on carbon fibre body panels.

Well said. Would like to see these technologies propogate throughout the BMW line.

The car looks fantastic and the ideas/application of new technology seems like a win but that video is terrible. All of that "expression of joy" marketing bs...I just hope that the "we make emotion" mindset doesn't replace "the ultimate driving machine" in the product development parts of bmw.
