BMW CS Vintage Concept

BMW CS Vintage Concept

Paying homage to the Giovanni Michelotti designed 1968 BMW E9 series, David Obendorfer has created a modern reinterpretation of the model in the form of the BMW CS Vintage Concept.  Inspired by Michelotti’s E9 and its predecessor, the 1965 BMW 2000 CS (E120 series), the CS Vintage Concept is based on BMW’s current 6 Series platform, and as Obendorfer states, “despite numerous citations from the past, [the CS Concept] is substantially contemporaneous with updated proportions and with modern details, many of which are inspired by nautical styling solutions.

Inside, the BMW CS Vintage Concept notes a minimalist design with simple lines and high quality materials synonymous with BMW, including luxurious wood and hand-stitched leather.  It lacks references to the classic BMW coupes of the 60s such as the four circular instruments, as it replaces them with four small TFT screens (two of which are freely programmable) while a central hideaway monitor displays navigational and infotainment data.

Put it all together, and the BMW CS Vintage Concept is easily one of the best looking BMW Concepts in recent memory.  See more of it in our photo gallery below.
