BMW @ The IAA Motor Show 2017

At this year’s International Motor Show, IAA, BMW sets a new milestone with introducing its concepts and visions regarding the mobility of the future. The claim of innovation is not only reflected in world premieres of brand-new models, new technologies and contemporary design – it is also represented by the Next Visionaries initiative by TED and BMW i to find innovative ideas for changing the future of mobility.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo impresses with its unique aesthetics as well as its generously proportioned and luxurious interior. Its superior driving characteristics guarantee sporty dynamics – and maximum ride comfort on long journeys. This vehicle is an expressive statement – of modern design and the joy of the Gran Tour.

The BMW 8 Series Concept

The innovative features of the BMW Concept 8 Series open up a whole new world of driving experience. The new user interface design is the logical step into the digital world and presents a modern interpretation of the previously round, analogue display instruments. As in motorsports, drivers have the most important information directly in view, and are thus able to concentrate fully on the task of driving. Digital experience and sheer driving pleasure merge into an unprecedented symbiosis, thus creating an entirely new driving sensation.

The New BMW X3

The all-new BMW X3 is a statement of unlimited opportunities and an expression of sheer presence and freedom. From the very first glance, it impresses with its athletic appearance and fascinates with an exciting driving experience. Thanks to partially autonomous driving and the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive, it offers supreme ride comfort both on and off the road. It therefore redefines the benchmarks in its class and makes one thing unmistakably clear: there is a great difference in how you reach your destinations.

The New BMW M5

The new BMW M5 is the uncompromising combination of elegant business saloon and systematically power-oriented supreme performance: large air inlets in the athletic front supply the M V8 high-performance engine with cooling air. The look created by the lines of the distinctive aluminium bonnet with two M specific swage lines is repeated in the contours of the roof made of very lightweight and tough carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). The discrete M rear spoiler supports the sporty and powerful appearance and is an important element of the overall aerodynamic concept. Form follows performance – consistently in every detail.

The BMW X7 iPerformance Concept

Presence is a question of charisma: the BMW Concept X7 iPerformance demonstrates this from every perspective. Despite the considerable size, its impressive appearance creates a slim and extremely agile appearance. Among other reasons, this is due to the narrow styling of the rear and the dynamic design lines that create a flowing forward movement. Together with the prominent upright kidney grille, the mighty air inlets and the elegantly accentuated surfaces produce a modern and authoritative overall image, which radiates true greatness and grandeur.
