The original BMW CS E9 was an important automotive achievement that brought BMW to the forefront of carmakers and set them apart from big players like Ford and Volkswagen. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the E9, designer Dejan Hristov has redesigned it with a fresh facelift for the 21st century.
Like its predecessor, the BMW GCS tribute is a long coupe with seating for 4. Unlike the swing doors of the previous, however, it sports a cool pair of gullwings that make perfect sense for their size. Its exaggerated, sharp nose is also reminiscent of the original but, for the most part, its styling is largely on par with BMWs more curvaceous, modern design language.
The inside is the true star of the show. It features an unbelievable panoramic display in contrast with a minimalistic control panel. Drivers can use the display to enhance their view of the road ahead or keep an eye on kids in the backseat with rear facing cameras. The more obvious use of the display is complete customization of the interior aesthetic. Users can set and swap out their visual vibe for a myriad of interactive environments to match any mood!
