Rendering: BMW iM Vision - The Most Outrageous Race Car of the Future

This concept showcases the Bavarian carmaker’s distant future in motorsport

Not long ago, BMW unveiled its future racecar for the LMDh in collaboration with Dallara, which is powered by a hybridized V-8. While it caught the attention of enthusiasts worldwide, it is not as badass as these renderings here. Meet the iM Vision from 2050, which has been imagined by Rizu Koley to give us an idea of how BMW can shape the future of racecars.

Here’s What Jay Leno Had To Say About The BMW That Changes Colors

The applications for the technology showcased on the BMW iX Flow with E-Ink are vast. This really is James Bond Wizardry in the making

Jay Leno recently got to check out the all-electric BMW iX. But this one is unlike any other iX that you and I can go put down a deposit for at the closest BMW dealership. This particular example has the ability to change color (black, white, and grey for now) and Jay really had some interesting things to say about it.

This BMW iX Uses E-Ink From Your eReader To Change From Black Or White

But it still won’t change the car’s buck tooth grille

What happens when an automaker takes the E-Ink from an eReader and uses it as a wrap that shifts from black to white and vice versa? You get the BMW iX Flow, of course.

Here’s What the Cybertruck Would Look Like if BMW Owned Tesla

What happens when you put a BMW grille on the Cybertruck?

Have you ever wondered what the Cybertruck is really missing? The answer is not a futuristic look - we can tell you that for sure! What the truck is really missing is a grille! Of course it doesn’t need one since we are talking about an electric vehicle, but Superrenderscars came with the perfect solution.

BMW's Return to The Big Grille Actually Dates Back to 1996 and This 7 Series Concept Proves It

BMW’s Return to The Big Grille Actually Dates Back to 1996 and This 7 Series Concept Proves It

This 1996 BMW ZBF Concept shows how the BMW E65 7 Series would have looked with a long kidney grille and a more retro-futuristic design

The topic of BMW’s large kidney grille is still a much-debated one. The prolonged grille design is actually a design cue that dates back to the 1930s, with cars like the 1936 BMW 328. Now, the long kidney grills have made a return, with most of BMW’s current lineup proudly wearing it (or shamefully, depending on how you’re looking at it). However, BMW’s recent decision to bring back this grille design isn’t as recent as you may think. Back in 1996, Joji Nagashima – the exterior designer behind the E36 and E90 3 Series came up with an interesting concept that paved the way for the controversial E65 7er. It was called the ZBF 7er and was the first concept to bring back the long kidney grille.

Remember That Time When BMW Built An X5 With the McLaren F1’s V-12

Who still remembers the bonkers, one-of-one BMW X5 Le Mans?

While the association between an SUV, be it the sporty BMW X5, and Le Mans should never have happened, German engineers pulled it off just for laughs. That’s how the X5 Le Mans was born, with a little help from a fire-breathing V-12.

Looking Back at the E31 BMW M8 Prototype

Looking Back at the E31 BMW M8 Prototype

Probably the most epic M car BMW never made

BMW is a name mostly associated with pure driving pleasure - in fact, it was even their slogan at one point. Even though they are making some pretty controversial cars, in the eyes of the fans, there’s no denying the fact, they’ve made some epic cars, over the years. One of the most epic BMW cars, however, was one that was never sold – the BMW M8 E31. Despite BMW’s decision not to put the M8 E31 into production, there are a lot of interesting facts surrounding it.

Here’s What The BMW Nazca C2 Would Look Like if It Was Made Today!

Wedge shape, sleek body, maybe an all-electric powertrain?

Penned by Fabrizio Giugiaro, son of the great Giorgetto Giugiaro, at the age of just 26, the BMW Nazca M12 came to life as a working prototype in 1991 only to be followed by an evolved version in 1992, called Nazca C2. It was supposed to replace the M1, but BMW pulled the plug and it never saw production. So, how about a modern-design BMW Nazca C2?

This 7-Year-Old Independent Design Study Would Make An Amazing BMW Hypercar Today!

Talk about timeless design

Although the M1 was the first and last BMW supercar to roam the streets, it is fair to say that the Bavarians have made up for not offering a similar-minded successor with the sheer amount of grunt packed by their M-badged contraptions - think the new M5 CS, for example.

Obviously, the i8 cannot be counted as a supercar, however, this design study would fit the bill rather nicely.

Is This BMW M4 Slaughtered or Innovation At Its Finest?

Is This BMW M4 Slaughtered or Innovation At Its Finest?

We’re inclined to believe it’s the second

BMW kind of broke the internet with the new M3 and M4. By slapping the sedan and coupe with the bucktooth grille introduced by the 4 Series, the Bavarians did enough to spark a lot of controversy among gearheads.

Since then, we’ve seen tuning companies trying to capitalize on BMW’s grille by offering kits that decrease those vertical kidneys to more eye-friendly proportions and even big-name designers giving their two cents on it. But maybe the problem wasn’t the grille, but the rest of the car. Maybe the M4 looks better with a more utilitarian vibe to it.

How Does This Rendering of the BMW X8 M Sit on Your Conscience?

How Does This Rendering of the BMW X8 M Sit on Your Conscience?

4 Series grille, X2 C-pillar, 8 Series headlights, this is a lot to take in

It seems like these days there’s a rounded-rear version for every premium SUV out there. The X3 has the X4, the X5 has the X6, the GLE has the GLE Coupe, the Cayenne has the Cayenne Coupe and so on. You get the point.

Coming back to BMW’s Xs, its largest SUV to date - the X7 - is in need of a hunchback brother and that might come in the shape of the X8.But one designer went ahead and concocted what he calls the X8 M.

A New Rendering Sheds Light on What a Modern Z3 Coupe Might Look Like

A New Rendering Sheds Light on What a Modern Z3 Coupe Might Look Like

BMW should see this right away

Back when BMW unveiled the Concept 4, it managed to polarize the whole gearhead community. Then the Bavarians did it again at the 2020 Geneva Online Motor Show, with the Concept i4.

In all fairness, we were already accustomed to the ginormous grille from the Concept 4, so the astonishment was of a lower intensity. But what if BMW launched a concept car that stayed faithful to the good old, normal-size kidney grille?

2020 BMW Concept i4

BMW has finally unveiled the concept version of its upcoming all-electric sedan

Despite the Geneva Motor Show getting canceled at the last minute due to the coronavirus scare, most of the automakers decided to unveil the vehicles at the same timelines, although on digital platforms.

BMW revealed the i4 Concept that previews what we can expect from the production version slated to release in 2021. To put it simply, the i4 will essentially be a 4 Series Gran Coupe with an electric powertrain. Will people accept it based on its looks?

BMW Could Build the 3.0 CSL Hommage R - For the Right Buyer, That Is

Wait, what?

Remember the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept from 2015? Silly us, of course you do. But we bet you didn’t think there’d be the slightest possibility of seeing it in road-legal guise, as it is, right?

Well, Supercar Blondie got to drive, rev, and explore the concept in and out right inside BMW’s home, but she also had a chat with the carmaker’s Head of Design Domagoj Dukec, who let it slip that for the right kind of customer - we are guessing the filthy rich type - BMW could actually build the concept and make it road-ready.

2019 BMW Concept 4

Imagine, if you will, that you have a crystal ball and within that ball, you can see BMW’s future. What do you see 5 years from now? 10 years from now? 20 years from now? Do you see crazy sports cars, an allotment of high-spend luxury cars, or a simple evolution of the cars the brand offers today? Well, if you look at the BMW Concept 4, the what you should be seeing is grille….lots and lots of big grilles. After all, that has been the most controversial thing about the new Concept 4, a model that’s said to represent, at least in some form, the next-gen 4 Series. That means other models, should this grille find its way to the next-gen 4 Series, could feature a similar look down the road as well. For now, though, let’s take a closer look at the Concept 4 and see what more there is to it outside of that massive grille.

The BMW Concept 4 Makes It Clear That BMW Has a Grille Problem

Would you like some car with your grille today?

BMW just pulled the sheets off the Concept 4, a new concept that appears to be a weird take on the current 4 Series with a very aggressive attitude and the most ridiculous grille that we’ve ever seen. What does the concept represent for BMW?

According to BMW, “The BMW Concept 4 embodies the aesthetic essence of the BMW brand. It combines perfect proportions with a clear and precise design,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

BMW has even said that the Concept 4 “offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4 Series range.” So will this thing actually transition into the next-gen 4 Series? Let’s talk more about it.
