Many of us have grown very impatient waiting for BMW to come out with a competitor to the Audi R8. When BMW came out with the M1 Hommage Concept, it gave us hope that BMW was finally going to offer an R8 competitor; however, we have yet to hear anything official from BMW.
Automotive artist Idries Noah became just as impatient as us and decided to design his own version of BMW R8 rival.
“So elements like the trademark grille and hockey stick pillar remain. My inspiration for this design however came from nature. More specifically water and the way it flows and ripples. The side detailing was inspired by what’s called in surfing terms “a Barrel or Tube”. It’s where the wave is hollow when it breaks.”
Noah says that the car would be the same size as the R8 and would feature a 5.0L V10 found in the M5 and M6.
