Behold: the BMW Garmisch – an automotive concept designed by the legendary Marcello Gandini, who created the Lamborghini Miura, Countach, Lancia Stratos, and the original BMW 5-series.

Launched at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, lost for 50 years and always regarded by BMW as a ‘missing link’ in its design history, the vehicle is being re-released in collaboration with Gandini – hand-built in Turin like its predecessor and with the same angular twin kidney grille, square headlights, louvred c-pillar and honeycombed rear window cover.

Behold: the Project Valkyrie Superyacht –  just a concept for now but soon to be the world’s biggest luxury yacht.

Designed by Chulhun Park and Palmer Johnson, the massive 229m trimaran vessel, capable of a nippy 25 knots top speed – will accommodate 52 guests and 92 crew with a casino, theatre, mall, restaurants, and exhibition halls.

Estimated build cost: (drum roll…) €710,000,000.

Behold: the Audi PB I8 E-tron – a ‘shooting brake’ style electric hypercar concept from the German manufacturer.

The driver enters on the left but, once seated, the entire monocoque slides into a central position – the ideal perch for a frankly alarming two second travel time from zero to 100km/h.

The prototype recently debuted at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in advance of any firm production dates.
