According to a report by InsideLine BMW officials have confirmed that the super advanced Vision EfficientDynamics Concept showed in 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, is actually set for production as the firm’s new supercar. If that’s true, then BMW is going to launch a groundbreaking car because there’s nothing like it on the market! Mind you it won’t reach you any time soon. And they have to come up with a new name for it obviously, because the current one is terrible!
Apparently the prototype’s powertrain which is a magnificent system consisting of a three-cylinder turbodiesel and two electric motors developing a total 356 hp and 800 nm will remain intact in the production model, which is good news, but the design will be changed to comply with the health and safety nonsense. For example there won’t be as many glass panels as in the concept car. But we hope they retain its good features like the shape of the tail lights or the scissor doors.
So the Vision EF has got everything it needs to become BMW’s new full-on supercar, good power, magnificent looks, and a sub five second 0 to 60 acceleration! However the word is that total volume is going to be between 5000 to 10,000 units, and that’s not very supercarish! because it won’t be exclusive enough. Maybe BMW doesn’t look at it as a supercar after all!
