Here are some exclusive, ad-hoc videos taken today during the BMW Vision Concept drive. As we mentioned earlier, BMWBLOG had the unique honor to attend this event and experience a ride aboard the fascinating future supersports car from BMW.

The event took place near the BMW plant in Leipzig and selected journalists were invited to experience the car as co-pilots. The adventure begins with a short driving demonstration of the electric drivetrain, followed by two straight lines where the 3 cylinder 1.5 liter diesel engine shows it capabilities.

The car currently uses 60% of its full capacity, yet plenty of power to show its sporty capabilities. The Vision Full Runner easily reached 90 mph.

    Let me guess about why the narrower tires: 1 – they reduce rolling resistance; 2 – since all four wheels are powered there isn’t so much power on any given wheel to overwhelm the tire size. Were they the 195’s we saw on the ‘dontblogabouthtis’ car?

    21″, and even though 195, they offer more contact that many wider tires. and yes, less drag.

    Final car will have slightly wider tires, slightly.

      So they have a longer contact patch – rather than a wider patch

        I still wonder how longer patch will compensate wider patch in corners where g-force works.

  • n8n

    They should put V12 engine ;)))
    That would be sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet :D:D

    • wazon8

      No, that would sacrifice the lighteness of the car. Predicted I6 sounds much better.
