Imaginé par le jeune roumain Iulian Bumbu, étudiant en Transportation Design Course à la Scuola Politecnica di Design de Milan et déjà présenté sur Supercharged pour sa Lamborghini Insecta, le concept BMW S.X est une étude de style autour d’une nouvelle génération de coupé sportif de luxe pour BMW, qui pourrait sans doutes inspirer la marque allemande dans les futurs choix créatifs concernant sa série 6 coupé. Toutes les images dans la suite !
The BMW S.X Concept is a proposal for a premium sports coupe developed by Iulian Bumbu, a graduate of the Transportation Design Course at the Scuola Politecnica di Design (SPD) in Milan. Bumbu’s previous designs include the Lamborghini Insecta concept.
The BMW S.X Concept represents a personal vision of what a next generation luxury sports coupe from BMW could look like. The S.X would be well positioned to take over where the current 6 Series BMW leaves off, and the styling of the S.X should gather more positive responses than the 6 Series does. The dimensions of the S.X Concept dictate that the vehicle would be wider and lower than the current car, with a longer wheelbase but slightly shorter overall length.
The exterior design of the BMW S.X Concept continues the flame-surfacing styling language of all current BMW’s, a trend pioneered by BMW’s former chief designer Chris Bangle. However whereas some BMW design elements could be described as awkward, the S.X does a good job at maintaining a sense of continuity throughout the bodywork. Some of the more unique styling features are the additional high mount brake lights which are incorporated into the edges of the rear window, and the lateral vents located just behind the front wheels provide a point of origin for the styling lines which break up the otherwise smooth shape of the doors.
Although the designer gave little information regarding the drivetrain as this is merely a styling exercise, the proportions suggests a mid-front engine layout, and like all BMW sports cars RWD. Source & Credit photos
