Interesting... It does a good job being a teaser that's for sure,
in a very annoying way for guys who wanna see the damn BMW concept RIGHT NOW!
Oh well it'll probably "leak" out soon enough lol.

i saw this yesterday at bimmerfile.com. at the time i thought it was a tail light like the rest of you guys.
but now as i'm looking at it, it almost looks like a look for Efficient Dynamics. if you look at just the blue outline it make out the shape of a "D". if you include the red line running through it, you can kind of make out an "E". what do you guys think?

Lots of people say: I don't even know what I am looking at. My take is it looks like the tail lights with aerodynamics integrated in it...Just a thought...I could be awfully wrong!

NO SHIT IT'S A TAILLIGHT. It would be ILLEGAL for a car to have red lights for anything else.

I think this is the right answer. Prolly just their new logo. I picked up my 09 M-Sport 335 this July and it had the"Efficient Dynamics" logo stickers on each side window. I asked what that was on there for and my CA just said it's BMW's new promotion of trying to get their fleet within average CAFE standards. They may be working on some electric cars or watever, but I highly doubt watver that "tailight" thing is would end up on any concept car in the near future.

This is the efficient dynamics logo.

Guys, if you look closely you can even see a white seat back with contrast stitching.

Just read this on WCF if it's true HOLY SH*T

Quote:
A source close to BMW told WCF that the Vision EfficientDynamics concept is a supercar utilizing a small diesel hybrid engine producing approximately 800Nm and an average fuel consumption figure of approximately 3.5 litres per 100km (67.2 mpg US / 80.7 mpg UK). They say it will be able to go from 0 - 100km/h in under 5 seconds. If these numbers are remotely true, BMW is certainly not exaggerating when they call it a "new revolutionary concept car with BMW EfficientDynamics technology."

Got this from motor authority:



Late last year a high ranking insider revealed that BMW was working on a “green” super-sports car based along the lines of the M1 Homage concept. BMW development board member Dr Klaus Draeger also recently revealed that the company was planning to unveil a sustainable sports car concept at the upcoming Frankfurt event.

The concept is expected pack the latest in BMW EfficientDynamics technology, but in addition to showcasing powertrain advancements it will also feature sustainable design and material elements.

According to previous reports, BMW is studying the viability of the project, with an eye to eventually building a two-seater sports car that showcases all of firm’s most sophisticated environmental technology. A limited production run would be timed for release at the end of 2012, giving cars like the top-selling Audi R8 and upcoming Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing some healthy competition.

You can completely disavow the last statements regarding the car is an Audi R8/SLS Rival because it is not. And neither is it a supercar.

To understand the concept you have to look at how can a sports car be acceptable in the future , not the present , no V8 , no V10 a Concept all about sustainability, and a precursor to how BMW will incorporate areas seen on the "Vision Efficient Dynamics" on future BMW's in ways of drivetrain , power and aerodynamics.

But the Concept is purely to show how BMW can produce a sustainable sports car for the future. It's a leap over todays sports cars and it's how BMW will interpret a Sports car for the future. To which the game will be played differently to which it is now.

Leap into the future with sustainable sport car? BMW should go straight to electric drive similar to Tesla and Mercedes AMG electric drive. 67mpg is not going to look impressive in a few years when the production car is readying for the market.

Wow! I got a feeling this is rather cutting edge and avant garde. That is great! Way to go BMW! The R8 might be cool, but it´s still same shit - different wrapping, as all other supercars has been since the Countach. It´s time to move on

You'll need an astronomer . . .

to calculate the price of any limited edition feeler model. But it will probably be a great success among us Americans, for whom economy never costs too much.
