Each year Villa d’Este near lake Como, Italy is home to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, an event that combines the automobile history with the future of exclusive sport cars and concepts.

A tradition since the past year is for BMW to reveal a new, emotional concept at the glamorous event and this year makes no exception.

    It has a big fat ass, that i dont really like. Those backlights and that whole black-glassy element is strange but somehow nice!
    I really start to like this BMW. The from is one of the most beautiful ive seen, among the 3 series coupe, X5, the new 5 and 5gt.
    Nice devilish touch on the Z letter too, in combination with this red color – AWESOME!
