🛣1985 bmw z1 prototype🛣
the engineers working for the think tank first established as bmw technik gmbh created a sensation with their first development. they pooled their ideas for a completely new vehicle concept in a two-seater roadster.
during this process, they developed a type of car that had virtually been forgotten in the mid-1980s. the first project was therefore already a perfect example of the very special approach being taken by the company.
the highlights of the bmw z1 went far beyond the body design that was received with such rapturous acclaim by the public and the 125 kw/170 hp six-cylinder in-line engine that served as the power unit.
development of this open sports car started in the second half of 1985, and ultimately this car was planned as a pilot project for innovative vehicle structures, the manufacture and application of new materials, and the optimisation of development processes.
the structure of the bmw z1 comprises a monocoque-type steel chassis with a bonded plastic floor.
the car’s bodywork is made of special elastic plastics that are not sensitive to damage. new thermoplastic materials and sandwich components were used.
the comparatively high side sills provide a degree of protection for the passengers that had not previously been achieved in a roadster. the powered vertical sliding doors were the eye- catching visual highlight of the design.
engineers developed a completely new suspension for the rear-powered wheels in order to ensure that the bmw z1 with its top speed of 225 km/h also qualified with flying colours in the discipline of future-proof driving pleasure. thoughts?

Lors de notre reportage à compiègne, nous avons croisé l’avant gardiste mercedes c111-1.
présentée pour la première fois au salon de francfort en 1969, elle est une véritable « voiture laboratoire » pour la marque à l’étoile et que dire de son design.
profilée comme une voiture de course mais avec des portes… papillons, bien-sûr !
prêtée par le @mercedesbenzmuseum durant toute la durée de l’exposition, elle exhibe fièrement sa belle couleur orange, so seventies !
Simply insane ❕❕ .

The infiniti qs inspiration concept is a true work of art that captures what the sports sedan of the electrified era will look like. see the qs inspiration up close only at the @cdnintlautoshow on now! #cias2020

La nouvelle aston martin dbs superleggera est tout simplement parfaite 🤷🏻♂️
vous validez cette teinte bleue nuit ? 🌑
je crois que @cyr_lb à trouvé sa future caisse 😝
The box-on-wheels project vector is what @jaguar and @landrover envision the future of urban mobility will be like. the concept is a big part of the company's "destination zero" mission, which calls for zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. while it still has a steering wheel it's "autonomy ready," and it was built with a mobility service in mind that will launch next year. what do you think of the project vector? tap the link in our bio for more.
Why drive when you can fly?
a project from porsche and boeing.
