Recently lots of rumors been flying around about a new small BMW Roadster as an MX-5 rival. This Geneva-bound concept roadster that just been revealed fuels the fire and proves that such thing might actually be in the pipelines.
This car is called the Vision Connected Drive concept and is basically a show car for BMW to show off their new and innovative ConnectedDrive technology and showcases current and future methods of mobile networking in a particularly focused way.
They say that’s even designed to look like its part of a networked world! So those colorful lights running all over the car might have something to do with its networking business. This concept, a two-seater compact roadster, sounds like a very fun car but BMW manages to make it awfully boring describing it like this:
Comfort, safety and the infotainment experience in the vehicle can be precisely optimised by the innovative functionality, individually tailored to suit the requirements of both the driver and passenger. New technologies and design concepts are employed to add even more facets to the unmistakable BMW driving pleasure.
The geeky Connected Drive roadster will be shown at 2011 Geneva Motor Show along with various ActieE and EfficientDynamics technologies plus the newly revealed BMW X1 xDrive 28i.
