2009 BMW M Concept by Idries Noah

(from Idries Noah) I grew impatient waiting for BMW to bring out an R8 rival, so I decided to design my own version of it. The recipe was simple. It needed to look Aggressive, Sleek, Agile and totally different from anything on the road today.

Usually I’d study legendary cars and draw inspiration from that. When designing the Ferrari F250 Concept e.g. I drew inspiration from cars like the Dino and 250GTO. This time however I needed
to clear my head and come up with something totally unique while still keeping some BMW details.

So elements like the trademark grille and hockey stick pillar remain. My inspiration for this design however came from nature. More specifically water and the way it flows and ripples. The side
detailing was inspired by what’s called in surfing terms “ a Barrel or Tube”. It’s where the wave is hollow when it breaks.

Dimension wise the car is roughly the same as the R8 and would be powered by a tweaked version of the 5L V10 found in the M6. It should be good for 400kw plus. If this car had to go into production in today’s day and age it would probably lose most of its aggressiveness and bold design features
And that’s sad because imagine pulling up next to an R8 in this….

And now BMW has to pay for the designs, and test out the chassis in the wind tunnel, and present the final plans to the higher-ups, and front money for initial production, and pay for publicity, and do extensive Nurburgring testing, and produce these monsters, and ship them all over the world, and....


See what's been done here with this fantastic, awesome, beautiful design concept? See what's been done here? For shame, for shame.

Nice, but other than the kidney grilles and badging, there's nothing there that even suggests BMW. This of course is the hardest part of designing a car for a company with a very valuable brand. Even if it's radically different, it has to look like a BMW.

meh, that's really not that good. besides looking aggressive it's not all that coherent of a design. the sides would also be a production and aerodynamic nightmare.

I see the beginnings of a SUPER-radical M6 widebody kit design here. Certain elements would work.
I can't believe you've done this
