The BMW Museum has changed up a few of their exhibits. Down at the base of the classic "ball" are three super cars: M1, M1 Homage and the M1Concept. All three in red! It is quite a sight to behold.


And upstairs where the "Art Cars" were shown up in the classic "ball" is now a special showing of "classic coupes". There is a little bit of BMW's grand past and present on display here. Take a look for yourself as I guide you thru the Museum....

And now revisiting the Hommage concept, we see it was the precursor for the i8 !

I still think BMW needs an R8 challenger, which would have to be..., wait for it.., M8!

My thoughts exactly! I was surprised to see the M1 Homage again and see all of the little design elements they brought into the i8. Very cool

True eye candy Dakel ... Thanks for sharing

The 327 convertible is a true classic, I could not take my eyes of it when I saw it in real life May 2009 at the BMW museum.
