BMW’s EfficientDynamics programs is inspiring graphic artists around the world. Taking a different approach, Stefan Radev, introduces the Blue Dynamics Land Yacht, a conceptual design of a wind powered vehicle running on three wheels and a sail.
Purely an exercise and not sponsored by BMW, the renderings show a premium version of a sail car/land yacht that combines the “distinctive style and emotional character” of a BMW with the “exclusiveness of a yacht, powered by an environmental force- wind”.
The futuristic concept reminds of Richard Jenkin’s Greenbird project, the wind-powered vehicle that set a land-speed record of 126.1 miles per hour. It’s exciting to see that BMW’s latest technology have an influence on designers that focus on industrial fields other than cars and more important, it stimulates these talented designers to come up with interesting concepts.
BMW “Blue Dynamics” land yacht description:
The “Blue Dynamics” is a wind powered vehicle. It consists of three wheels and a sail.
The challenge was to incorporate the style of a premium vehicle with the exclusiveness of a yacht, powered by an environmental force- wind. It is an interpretation of the idea through the eyes of a premium automobile brand like BMW, that has taken a path of creating environmentally- friendly cars, who carry a distinctive style and emotional character.
The name “Blue Dynamics” combines a symbolic connection of the wind (air) and BMW’s “efficient dynamics”, “active hybrid” greener emission programs.
The playground of “Blue Dynamics” is flat a open space like deserts or beaches with typical wind conditions.
