BMW has till now designed and given us just one mid-engined vehicle. That is the M1 model and the vehicle has long since gone out of production; in the year 1981 to be precise. Successor to this car is yet expected and there have been some full scale drivable mock up models also that has been seen from ItalDesign to this effect.
The Nazca M12 model is one such work from ItalDesign which they made in 1991. This also was a mock-up model which had a mid-mounted V12 engine to it and the trademark rear wheel drive that is associated with the BMW. The design house thereafter had gone on to give the Nazca C2 model at the Tokyo Motor Show held in 1992 and then the Spyder model in 1993.
It is this present model that the Dutch designer Sabino Leerentveld has come up with as homage to the Nazca C2 model after twenty years.
The new car is indeed a beauty to behold given its sculpted aerodynamic flanks, EfficientDynamics inspired nose and pillars that has been cleverly concealed behind its massive glasshouse. The car seems to be near production ready and the styling this time has less of fuss about it. Pictures of the car would further verify these conclusion being drawn and for each individual to agree or disagree with them.
