    I've been drooling over this one, unfortunately it's only a concept. I'll agree with the author, I'd love to see this one make it to production.

    Saw it earlier. Absolutely stunning. The attention to detail is amazing (note the little z's embedded inside the signature BMW kidney grills). I'd have to say if they made it work I'd have to find a way to bring one home.

    That looks better than any BMW they are selling now, including all the "M" cars. They are just big and ugly. Inwould take one of these for sure.

    Another brilliant BMW added to my list of models I won't likely be able to afford until they're at least 20 years old.... If then.

    To bad this is a "look what we can do" car that will never be made.

    Here is the designer-speak video. Yes, even more so than the other. You've been warned...

    If that holds true, all the MORE reason to want it!

    I like everything about it except the "Honda" glass panel in the rear.

    Man I love it. As far as the CRX rear panel, vinyl it. Although I bet once inside the extra visibility would be very welcome.

    I agree, that's my least favorite aspect.

    Never mind that, just replace the rear view mirror with a rear view camera.
