Concept cars give free rein to the creativity of automotive designers. From electric drive systems through gull-wing doors to fabric outer skins – the concepts are always focused on the future and brimming with visionary potential. Concept cars serve a variety of purposes; often they are conceived as design studies to help refine and develop BMW design language, or to visualise what form new production models will take.
Alternatively, some Concept cars seek to recognise or celebrate BMW’s history of automobile design or sporting success. Furthermore, some are the result of collaboration between the BMW Design Team and illustrious third-party design houses. Finally, they are often created to help develop and implement innovative new technologies, sustainable materials or alternative drivetrains.
