Imagine getting t-boned in that car. That only will you most likely die but you will die with chunks of glass up your ass. Otherwise the car looks amazing.

Visually you are looking at how BMW Design will begin to progress.
both this and the MegaCity Vehicle are preludes to what is to come from the design department. The next generation of BMW's in terms of design are going to be out of this world. Emcompassing it's own signature design language is also part of Efficient Dynamics in which more streamlined and aerodynamic shapes will be inherited in future BMW's.

BMW is solely a company that has it's eyes on the future that is why the Vision Efficient Dynamics i8 Concept will be a new era for Sports cars.

People have always asked me "What happens when Audi wrestles the Top spot from BMW?" My answer is " You have not seen what we have instore in the future"... Presume nothing.

Just look at how skinny the tires are. Performance needs more meat!

I always believed that Pontiac was a company that thought it was the American BMW.
even though no one else saw that.

Happy New Year.

The G8, which was a good effort, shouldn't have been their last hoorah, but it was. The G8 GXP was a phenomenal car.

Well said...Ever since the 80's to me I felt that Pontiac wanted to be the BMW of GM...

We are of the same opinion..in addition I am also a Scott ~

I am excited because it is obvious that the "I have more horsepower" is over and performance, asthetics, and weight savings (a la carbon fibre incorporation) will make BMW a company to look to for design ... athletics in asthetics ~Frost

dont like the cartoonish tricolor theme, i would opt for a whole black or white car, even maybe black or white with grey accents a la r8 but dont like that blue on a street car. just my personal thoughts

Its not that great...the look doesn't flow somehow...I"m sure BMW will clean it up.


the R8 looks nice
the SLS AMG looks great

BMW does need a winner on style here; performance will be there no doubt, its BMW -- but style...BMWs are always well styled, never amazingly styled.
