BMW Concept 1 Series tii

 

 

25th October, 2007

BMW Concept 1 Series tii

Agility, lightness, youthfulness and superior sportiness all these features are present and highlighted in the new BMW Concept 1 Series tii.

Based on the new BMW 1 Series Coup and presented this week at the Tokyo Motor Show 2007, this design study is a further development of BMWs compact two-door with a focus on sportiness.

With its aerodynamically optimised body, a wide range of lightweight features serving to minimise the weight of the car and its axle load distribution, as well as an interior tailored specifically to the ambitious driver, this concept study offers a high level of driving dynamics right from the start.

BMW Concept 1 Series tii offers a rendition of the brands sporting genes, at the same time endeavouring to support the not-so-highly desired 'character' of BMWs compact two-door.

In its design, BMW Concept 1 Series tii takes up the traditional features and characteristics of BMW sports cars of the past.

At first sight, the beholder will see features which made numerous BMW Coups a success on both the road and the race track back in the 1960s and 70s.

These were cars characterised by compact dimensions, low weight with perfect balance front-to-rear, as well as then powerful engines conveying their muscle to the rear wheels.

Particularly the BMW 02 introduced back in 1966 was acknowledged as a worthy vehicle for the time.

And now the new BMW 1 Series Coup represents a similar philosophy: Light, agile, and powerful, this compact two-door with its sporting handling provides another attempt to 'spark-up' the BMW 1-Series.

The similarities between these two models result in particular from the concept of the car, BMW Concept 1 Series tii bringing out these strengths and demonstrating how much the development principles applied more than four decades ago are still appropriate today in providing sports models.
