This Year’s winner of the North American Concept Vehicle Awards is pure splendour. I must admit BMW as a styling force haven’t grabbed my attention in recent years, except from the M Series. So when I read that BMW’s I8 took the crown I just had to see what it looked like. In my opinion this is typical styling for a concept vehicle however where others haven’t been workable or affordable, the I8 is a real working, practical and affordable sports car. Not only has it earned a super car status but it only consumes a small car’s fuel. It does 0-62mph in less than 5 seconds and produces roughly 104 miles to the gallon.
It looks bulky and strong yet it’s lightweight design helps make it efficient on fuel too. As well as its dynamic design and monstrous fuel efficiency the BMW I8 is making headway in vehicle light technology. Its laser light technology is 1000 times stronger than LEDs and use up just half the power. Due to the way that the laser light is emitted, it poses no risk to humans or animals and is actually pleasant to the eyes rather than dazzling oncoming traffic. The size of the lighting unit also highlights future possibilities of body styling and headlight placement.
These inspirational attempts to make driving more pleasurable and travelling more efficient are compelling and bold. Designers are achieving styling that’s out of this world. It’s not just about making a car look futuristic and telling us how it would perform in a fantasy world though, it’s the drive and determination to make it adapt to our ever changing needs, go further and faster by using less energy and being practical enough to make our journeys comfortable, safer and more importantly enjoyable. It’s creating something that we can all share and love, that’s the concept!
