BMW reveals new roadster concept

Font size

This is the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive concept car, and it wants to be your brain.
Before a bizarre notion of painful auto-based surgery pops into your head, this stunning concept - revealed ahead of its Geneva motor show world debut - is BMW's idea of a connected, networked automotive future and features a 3D head-up display designed to filter information to make driving easier.
BMW has given the passenger some Tron-like toys to play with too: as ‘co-pilot', he or she can find information (routes, traffic etc) and forward them to the driver's panel. As a handy bonus, it totally alleviates the need to actually talk to your driver.
There's also an ‘Emotional Browser', which captures and filters info about the hood you're driving through; info such as people, mood or location, which isn't terrifying in the slightest. Wonder if it automatically locks the doors while driving through Birmingham on a Saturday night?
The shark-nosed front and layered styling - reminiscent of the Vision Dynamics supercar - is said to reflect Bee Ems' future direction. The concept features fibre optics in various colours in three different areas of the exterior, which have a dedicated light installation. It also gets 20in rims and retracting doors a la BMW Z1.
Like the idea of a BMW roadster constantly in touch with the outside world making your brain less burdened? Or do you simply want engine/wheels/seats/doors?
