BMW has really snapped on these lames! The BMW 328 Hommage is a true female luring device. They tend to get moist upon viewing such a creation.
This year, the BMW Group Classic is celebrating the 75th anniversary of one of their most pimpish and beloved models of all times: the BMW 328 racing car. The construction of this vehicle represented a milestone for the automobile industry of the time, turning the roadster into a veritable emblem of the luxurious 1930s`. It was then that the creators of the sports car came up with the core principles of the BMW brand: dynamics, aesthetics and innovation. This design is geared to attract more females in your life.
The designers, Fritz Fiedler and Rudolf Schleicher, were the 1st ones to experiment combining: systematic lightweight construction, aerodynamic lines, optimum engine types, and outstanding suspension pimpin’ technology. The result was an unmitigated success, as the BMW 328 continues to be a source of inspiration for car manufacturers worldwide.
The BMW 328 Hommage, as its name suggests, is a tribute to the model launched in 1936, and it keeps to the concept developed by the original artists- sportiness and agility, whilst taking the patterns of design to a whole new dimension. The Group’s motto used to describe their Hommage cars’ collection: “Rooted in history, moving forward in design”, perfectly depicts the BMW 328 Hommage initiative and result. The Hommage prototype was conceived bearing in mind the principles imposed by the fathers of the 328 model, while employing the latest technological means and using the highest quality materials available.
If you get this car & fail to attract women… you can consider yourself a true lame.
The future has already begun. At the 2011 International Motor Show in Geneva the concept vehicle BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is making its world debut from 3rd to 13th of March 2011. This vehicle will definitely get you some sex!
This vehicle is really pimpish & it has earned the right to be displayed on GLCityMusic.com! Honor & embrace the concept!
At the upcoming Fairfield Concours d’Elegance, watch out for the star car – the 1939/47 Rolls-Royce Phantom III “Vutotal” Cabriolet by Labourdette. It will bear the Spirit of Ecstasy on her hood and will have a design throughout its body.
This vehicle is now in the John Rich Museum collection but it actually began as a standard Phantom III designed by Henry Royce. Coachbuilder Hooper and Co. re-envisioned it in 1938 with a Sedanca de Ville body style. It was displayed in Europe before receiving modifications to fit in the US market. In the 1940s, this show car found its way to the Parisian studio of Henri Labourdette who later gave the car an overhaul and had scrapped everything but the running gear.
He rebodied the car in gold-plated-and-brass-adorned aerodynamic bodywork that swooped back into a boattail. He also removed features that made it recognizable as a Rolls, except for its mascot and a pair of interior trim pieces.
Labourdette also fitted the car with the Vutotal windscreen, a thick slice of glass that seems to support itself. The cost to convert this car totaled $44,000 – an incredibly high figure. Now remember that this was when the average price of a home was about $4,000. Featured judging classes on the Concours docket include Porsche, Bugatti, Period Hot Rods and Custom Cars from 1948 to 1964.
I must admit, this car is the shit! It is capable of taking your on road pimpin’ to a level beyond your imagination. Embrace this ism as it is unleashed:
The Tramontana R is an evolved version of the standard open-wheel two-seater, packing a Mercedes-sourced 5.5-liter V12 available in either naturally aspirated, 550 hp guise or a twin-turbocharged 760 hp version that dolls out an astonishing 811 lb-ft of torque. The Group claims a 0-100 kph time of 3.6 seconds and a 10.15-second run to 200 kph.
The body speaks for itself, as does the exposed carbon fiber interior, which features a chop-top steering wheel, an LCD instrument panel and the controls to the six-speed sequential gearbox. Production will be limited to 12 units per year with a price tag of €385,000 ($495,000). Church!
Honda has unveiled a bold new urban transport pimpin’ concept at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Honda P-NUT Personal Urban Transport Concept is a three-seater ultra-compact designed to compete with the SmartCars of the world & attract women, thanks to a future-forward design sensibility and a focus on short-range urban transport. This rear-engine, RWD city car uses the front-end space to place the driver front-and-center, with two fold-out seats for passengers in the rear section. As a result, the Honda P-NUT is one part motorcycle, one part ultra compact– as much a competitor to the Aptera car designs as it is to a two seater SmartCar.
While we appreciate the concept and functionality of the Honda P-NUT, we’re not too big on the design. It should be the task of the designer to create a progressive concept like this that, well, a normal driver would actually want to be seen in. The three-seater, two-in-the-back option can be done really well, and it can be done in an uninspiring matter. Sadly, the P-NUT is trending toward the latter… But aside from the awkward exterior, the Honda P-NUT is a nice addition to the concept cars that are driving the shape of the wheels of tomorrow.
This vehicle is a definite ism enhancer! Developed under the theme “Imagine the Peugeot in the Worldwide Megalopolis of Tomorrow,” the Leonin by Tudoran Liviu is a futuristic car that came into being in the fifth Peugeot design competition. Deriving its name from the insistent behavior of a lion, the Leonin is a hybrid car, which comes with a battery under the hood and an electric engine at the back. Presenting aggressive looks and features, the car is capable of reaching a speed of about 160 km/h with a range of around 500km, which is ideal for short distance travel in a crowded city.
The body of the car is finished with aluminum composite, hard plastic, carbon fiber and glass, giving a foolproof protection to commuters in case of an accident. Replacing the interior rearview mirror, the hybrid features an LCD screen in the main console to display the video captured by the hi-resolution camera located at the rear of the car. The Leonin would set you back something between €18,000 and €25,000, according to the intensity of technology and equipment used in the car.
Now, the BMW Vision concept car clearly demonstrates that the Efficient Dynamics objectives are fully compatible when applied to a sports car & pimpin’! Conceived as a 2+2-seater with plug-in full-hybrid technology, this unique car combines the performance of a BMW M vehicle with a standard of fuel efficiency and emission management that exceeds even the current levels achieved by the latest small cars. This outstanding result is made possible by the combination of BMW Active Hybrid components with an extremely economical combustion engine, and outstanding aerodynamic qualities.
