New futuristic BMW renderings hit the interwebs. Christophe Jourd’hui, a French designer from International School of Design and Benjamin Baron, a former intern at BMW DesignWorks Munich, launch a project called BMW MZ8. The project was carried out while at BMW but this shorter version of it took a month to finalize.
The renderings pay tribute to the BMW 8 Series and Z8 models. According to Jourd’hui, the BMW MZ8 project “commemorates the 40 years of Motorsport department. I decided to work on a spyder in honor of the Z8 and 8 series. Modern interpretation of the Motorsport philosophy.”
Together with Baron, they focused on idea sketches and 3D design process.
Furthermore, the MZ8 was envisioned as a rear mid-engine car which ideally would make over 600 horsepower. Iconic elements like the kidney-grille, shark nose and roadster proportions have been incorporated into the futuristic project.
Let’s have a look.
