    Designed for the year 2017, the BMW Rapp concept is a celebration of the brand’s century-long history, paying tribute to Beemer’s founding mechanical engineer, Karl Friedrich Rapp. The concept attempts to capture the most prominent design features across different models over the years such as the under-angled front grill, reverse doors, and high position tailpipes… rolling them into a single 2-door roadster with a hybrid aesthetic of retro and modern style.
    Designer: Dejan Hristov

            Is this a Concept by BMW?

                  Human You. The Road. Nothing else.

                  My thoughts exactly(y) I like it.


                  Something Gothic, outrageous about it. (BMW Sharknose personified)

                    It certainly is outrageous as a design, but it embodies the Roadster design language as previewed with the Vision ConnectedDrive Concept Car , the Great White Shark esque nose is perhaps a touch too dramatic as is the sharpness of the lower aerodynamics.

                    One thing about design is that aerodynamics should not end up looking like the front of a vacuum cleaner.

                    There is a product meeting regarding the Spyder Stradale this week , earliest rumours suggest it might align with Toyota as a Toyota/Lexus badged joint project.

                    Oh, that old concept designed in the US? It was a nice car, the engine too was epic. Won't happen. And what is the new powertrain? I6 or V8? Because the Toyota to get a V6.

                    No please man, no more V6 talk. It is becoming the dropping line 2.0

                    A partnership with Toyota can only result in good things.

                      Stunning looking car. Nose is a bit over the top but other than that it is hot.

                      I never ever thought about the same engine. Toyota fan are also hopping to get a Supra with the I6 engine of M3/M4. They don't know that engine is crap, but BMW will never give them it.

                      The Toyota-BMW sportscar is really a very different thing, it is like as different as an A8 and a Flying Spur. I would think the Toyota would be lighter in general, because less luxury, but heavier because of hybrid, while the BMW might be conventional.

                        BMW design though has gotten too trinkety lately. They need to have a slight Bauhaus movement. Not full on like Audi, but just enough to clean up the designs. I realize this isn't from BMW, but it made me think about it.
