There are countless stories about BMW cars that have been told by its fans, from how much they love their Bimmers to how much fun driving a BMW is. It’s a car company that is forever pushing its own boundaries to explore new levels of automotive achievements. A company full of dreamers who like to create purely for the sake of creating!
BMW has never wanted to be the second one. Its people like to make things that no one else has done before. And it all starts in the concept phase. How many concepts BMW has made before? So many. It’s one of a few brand names that has its own Museum. So, let’s take a look at the coolest/strangest/funkiest BMW concepts:
1972 E25 Turbo
Built as a celebration for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, the E25 Turbo was an extreme version of the M1 supercar. It was designed by Paul Bracq, with gullwing doors and was based on a modified 2002 chassis with a mid-mounted engine and all the best technologies in the ‘70s, including a radar system to warn drivers of curbs. It was way beyond people’s imagination of how groovy this concept could be. The car developed 206 kW at 7100 rpm and reached 62 MPH from a standstill in 6.6 seconds before reaching the top speed of 155 MPH.
2011 328 Hommage Concept
The 2011 concept would recall beautiful memories of the 1930s concept — one of the dream sports cars back in that time. The 2011 328 Hommage Concept is a two-seater, straight-six engined, metallic-constructed roadster. It has the familiar kidney-shaped BMW grille stretched upright in dramatic fashion, and the interior and exterior make heavy use of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic. There are no doors, just deep recesses — a design that reflects wildness and freedom.
