The front of the eight-wheeler adopts the luxury brand’s signature ‘C-line’- with the drivers cab suspended inside. The prow, redolent of a futuristic steam-engine’s cow-catcher signifies progress and utility though, in fairness, none of this really signifies anything.
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 Technicon Carat 187 superyacht by Technicon Design – an inexplicable (possibly promotional) 57 metre ultra luxury conceptinspired by ‘the world of the red carpet’ with a dramatic pair of articulated stairs reaching out to two matching tenders docked either side.
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.
