      and he’s a big guy!… i’m 6’3 so i find not all sports cars fit well… ahem… japanese!…

      glad to see they didn’t make something as small as the toyo/subi sports car…

  • viper

    surprisingly how Arnie looks small in ‘that’ car….
    too bad its only a fiction….

    • Doug

      Considering his size, that makes the vision around the size of…. a 7-series? I thought it was 5/6-sized…. wow.

  • Giom

    It’s nice to see the car in amongst people. It gives you a good idea of it’s scale… and it looks good! Looking forward to some updates Horatiu!

    This car really is nice!! Even Arnold Schwarzenegger fits in the car nicely so that gave us some idea on how roomy the interior is.

    BMW, please make this into a production car and if it happens, nobody will miss the opportunity to buy this car!! Well.. only for some that have big cash that is.. Hmmm..

    It seems that BMW is actually considering building it
    and it should go into production within a few years.
    The CEO was so impressed by it (when it was presented in Frankfurt)
    that he said “somehow we should find a way to actually build it”
