Funny: The new BMW Compact

Let’s start the day with a smile on our faces. After reading the multiple weekly reports on BMW’s future models, spin-offs or new concepts, we can assure you that it gets confusing, even for us. While we obviously love the brand, we can’t stop wondering if BMW’s plans to “conquer” new markets in the next few years are really the answer for the future, but this is a story for some other times.

If the top photo hasn’t given it away yet, then let me tell you that this article has nothing in common with any future models, but it is simply related to an unfortunate, some may call it funny, situation where a BMW 3 Series (can’t tell if it’s the M3 or not) gets squashed by some heavy construction materials.

End result: The Most Compacted BMW.

We hope that no one got hurt in this accident and that everyone around the car was safe as well.

Thanks D.!

    Amaizing how the front wheels withstood the weight. I wonder how the rear wheels look.

    didn’t take a rocketsled to pancake that one!
    @AlMomen : OK, just don’t tell the insurance people…

    This happened in Norway a year or two back I believe. And I don’t think that anyone got hurt. The BMW was parked beside a stack of concrete elements at a construction site, and wind made the blocks flip and land on the car.

    Okay, dug up some more info. The concrete elements weighed in at 19,8 tonnes, and nobody was hurt. The car belonged to a worker on the scene – which ironically was the construction site for a new hospital.

    318is in my opinion… to be honest, anybody who puts those ridiculously crap aftermarket angel eye conversions in an E36 needs there ass removed.. or their car crushed!
