The BMW Z4 M was the last car from BMW to have a similar shape to this latest concept car the German automaker recently revealed. The name for this one is the BMW Concept Touring Coupé and it’s pretty damn cool. The closed 2-seater was developed for one-off production but it somehow looks too complete to remain a one-off model though, well in our expert opinion. BMW Design has reimagined this traditional 2-seater shooting brake body shape, and at the same time created an interior with precisely crafted leather surfaces and the compartment behind the seats provides room to stow luggage for spontaneous road trips. In true BMW style, there’s also bespoke luggage for this concept, and it was custom-made at the Schedoni leather workshop in Modena. “The BMW Concept Touring Coupé celebrates the original Sheer Driving Pleasure,” says Domagoj Dukec, head of BMW Design. “A highly emotional vehicle like this shows that the passion for everything that goes into driving pleasure has been essential through the ages and will be for the future.” Being a one-off model, just about everything was hand-crafted. The car’s proportions hark back to the BMW 328 Touring Coupé that won the Mille Miglia in 1940. The functionality of the shape is a nod to the BMW 02 Series variants of the early 1970s, which featured “Touring” in their name to distinguish them from sedans.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off the amazing Touring Coupe concept recently released by BMW. The car shows us just what the automaker can do, and also gives hope for the die-hard fans of the classic BMW Z3 and BMW Z4 models that have fallen away. This concept is something that would do amazing if it made it into production - we have our fingers and toes crossed that the worldwide feedback is enough to greenlight this project into production: BMW Concept Touring Coupé | CWMedia
