The BMW Garmisch concept car was developed by Bertone as an independent design proposal intended to demon-strate the studio’s creativity. The original idea came from Nuccio Bertone himself who wanted to consolidate our existing relationship with BMW by designing a surprise show car for the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, remembers Marcello Gandini, who was in charge of Bertone’s design department at the time. “We wanted to create a modern mid-sized coupe that was faithful to BMW’s design language, but that was also more dynamic and even a bit provocative.” After its debut at Geneva, the car was apparently shipped to BMW but somehow vanished.
With the newly recreated Garmisch, completely faithful to the original, BMW pays respect to one of Italy’s most influential car designers and adds an exciting chapter to the company’s history.
BMW Vision M NEXT
“The BMW Vision M NEXT is a pro-gressive hybrid sports car that makes a very clear and confident statement, in terms of both appearance and interaction,” says Domagoj Dukec, Vice President BMW Design.
The emotion-stirring exterior design clearly announces the BMW Vision Vehicle’s performance potential, borrowing styling cues from both classic and contemporary BMW sports cars in the process. The BMW Vision M NEXT draws its inspiration from the iconic BMW Turbo and BMW M1 and adopts a future-focused interpretation of design elements such as the low-slung, wedge-shaped silhouette, gullwing doors, and striking color scheme.
De Tomaso P72
The De Tomaso P72 was designed to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the brand. The P72 is an homage to the original De Tomaso P70. The original P70 was a collaboration between Carroll Shelby and Alejandro de Tomaso and is one of many untold chapters of De Tomaso history.
The P72 evokes the spirit of Alejandro de Tomaso, the brand, and the eras that this car represents. A true modern-day time machine, the P72 will create a new segment in today’s market. A segment for those who have been yearning for a modern-day classic—one that is not only dressed with a timeless shape and an unspeakable elegance, but one that will provide a grand touring experience, making you feel as if you are back in the 1960s.
Ford GT Mk II
The Ford GT Mk II has been co-developed by Ford Performance and Multimatic based on competitive learnings from Ford’s successful FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship campaigns with the Ford GT race car. Yet the Mk II is engineered independent of race series rules and limitations.
Like the original 1966 Ford GT40 Mk II race cars, the new Mk II is focused around aerodynamic and engine improvements and shares key features with both the Ford GT road car as well as the race car. Many of its components have been track-proven in the world’s most challenging endurance racing events.
Genesis Mint Concept
The Genesis Mint Concept is a vision for a Genesis car for the city—with a scaled-down interpretation of the signature brand aesthetic. Inside and out, the Mint Concept posits an expanded definition of Genesis design cues adapted for a two-door, two-passenger city car. The challenge in creating the Mint Concept, a lightweight runabout, was to reimagine the iconic shape of the city car, tailored to the needs of a modern lifestyle.
The Genesis Mint proves that luxury doesn’t have a size. At the global launch of the Mint Concept in New York, Manfred Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and Global Head of the Genesis Brand, said, “As a brand, Genesis embraces progressive design values, and the Mint Concept reinforces this commitment from a previously undiscovered perspective.”
Gunther Werks 993 Concept
The Gunther Werks 993 is a modern and respectful homage to the Porsche 993’s iconic air-cooled heritage, remastered from the chassis up utilizing modern technology to create the ultimate analog 911.
This concept’s exoskeleton showcases the extensive use of carbon fiber technology implemented for the purposes of reducing the weight and stiffness of the vehicle. The exterior carbon fiber weave is hand-laminated in a V pattern where particular attention is paid to ensuring that intersecting body panels match. This exterior body option takes 800 hours to perfect! The ultimate focus was to develop a track-competent car that can be comfortably driven daily on the street and that exhibits modern classical design.

Hence, the Lamborghini sportive mark is clearly visible in every detail.
Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition
“Notice the doors,” the vintage advertisement for the Lincoln Continental began. “And notice how they open. From the center, to make everyone’s entrances graceful.” With that, a design legend was born — the coach doors, or center-opening doors, which conveyed elegance and a touch of Hollywood glamour.
Six decades later, Lincoln brings back a modern version with the Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition. Each of the 80 units in this limited production for 2019 will have a special door sill plate featuring its number in the run.
The Lotus Evija marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the storied history of an iconic and much-loved British sports car brand. As a major new model, its significance cannot be overstated.
The Evija is the first all-electric hypercar from a British brand. With a target output of 2,000 hp — making it the most powerful production road car ever built — it sets a new high standard in the global hypercar market.
Maserati Levante S GranSport with PELLETESSUTA™

McLaren GT by McLaren Special Operations
The new McLaren GT reimagines the spirit of traditional Grand Touring, offering both the space, comfort, and usability expected of a GT, as well as the lightweight and engaging drive McLaren is known for.
The McLaren GT is a new category for the McLaren brand, and technology and craftsmanship play a bigger role than ever before. The interior has a dual focus: high performance driving, with seating position, location of controls and forward visibility as key priorities, while simultaneously being comfortable enough for long distance journeys. With a higher ride height and enough storage for a golf bag or two pairs of skis and boots, as well as additional luggage up front, the McLaren GT is truly a daily driver.
2019 Nmoto Nostalgia
The Nmoto Nostalgia is a one-of-a-kind endeavor to capture the ambition of the legendary 1934 BMW R7 prototype — considered by many to be the motorcycle equivalent of the Mona Lisa.
The core of the Nostalgia is a modern BMW R Nine T, fitted with 96 handcrafted pieces. Constructed primarily of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Nostalgia is lighter than a stock R Nine T and the original prewar prototype. Modern technology also provides more power and maneuverability, so riders get the best of both worlds — Art Deco design with contemporary reliability.
Pagani Zonda C12
The Pagani Zonda C12 is the first vehicle ever made by the Pagani Atelier. Here, twenty years after its debut, is the glorious chassis 001 of the Zonda C12. The car was first presented at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show. With its deep, curved windshield and a cockpit that juts forward like a fighter jet, this futuristic supercar was received as such a watershed in the automobile world that the term hypercar was invented to describe it.
To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, the Pagani Atelier paid tribute to this iconic car by lovingly restoring chassis 001 — the chassis originally used for the vehicle’s approval and crash tests.
Pagani Huayra Roadster BC
The ultimate Pagani creation, the Huayra Roadster BC is a track-focused soul, nested in a heart of pure craftsmanship. When it comes to establishing new technology standards, it all comes down to the Huayra Roadster BC — the hypercar that embodies Pagani’s ultimate technical and engineering development combined with the most eminent research for style and elegance.
The Huayra Roadster BC exceeds all expectations; it is a street-legal hypercar wholeheartedly devoted to the track, ready to go beyond the already high limits reached by the Huayra Roadster, and it is the first roadster to be lighter than its coupe variant. Meeting that challenge meant designing each individual component through meticulous study and research aimed not only at conquering new ambitious goals of lightness, performance, and comfort but also creating a unique object in terms of style, elegance, and handcrafted finishes.
Porsche Formula E Works Race Car
Preparations continue briskly for Porsche’s first race in Formula E, the all-electric race series. Since officially announcing in April 2018 that it would enter the 2019/2020 ABB FIA Formula E world championship, the sports car manufacturer has already achieved a number of key milestones — with more to follow.
The development of the power train is central to the Porsche factory entry and is a decisive competitive factor. In an effort to help entrants control costs, a standard chassis and battery are part of the Formula E series strategy, but all drive components are the manufacturers’ concepts. This gives Porsche the opportunity to pursue its own path in developing key technologies, including electric engine, inverter, brake-by-wire system, transmission, differential, driveshafts and suspension components attached to the rear axle, as well as the cooling system and control unit.
Volkswagen ID. Buggy
The ID. BUGGY concept car is a modern, retro-free interpretation of an icon — the classic California dune buggies of the ’60s. It shows the versatility of the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) and puts the fun in functional.
The MEB chassis integrates a 62 kWh lithium-ion battery into the floor and a 201-hp electric motor in the rear with maximum torque of 228 lb/ft from standstill. The minimalist design, with no doors or roof, gives drivers the purest experience of classic beach cruising.
