bmw design group: along the side of the car all the lines, surfaces and details lead the eye from the front end along the stretched engine compartment and clearly defined a-pillars before converging at the centre of the vehicle. two expressive lines are drawn from the front along the flanks of the vehicle towards the engine compartment area. The flow of lines begins in a straight, disciplined fashion at the front end, lowering the optical centre of gravity of the bmw m1 hommage and highlighting its low-slung stance. from the middle of the car, however, the lines break up. The power of the design is focused precisely where the power of the vehicle also lies – at the engine. strong, sensuous sweeping lines accentuate the car’s mid-engine concept, the design emphasizing the mechanics behind it, the engineering skills and the engine expertise of the bmw group.
