A little bit of BMW Rapp Concept History

This concept pays tribute to Karl Friedrich Rapp, the man who laid the foundations of BMW. The story begins in 1913, when Rapp, a mechanical engineer from Munich, founded the company Rapp Motorenwerke. The idea for the new company was to produce and sell internal combustion engines for airplanes and cars. In 1917, Karl Rapp leaves the main position of the company, which provides the fundamental restructuring that we know today as BMW.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of BMW, designer Hristov introduces the BMW Rapp Concept. His basic idea was to cover the history of the Bavarian brand and style used elements from their almost every model that came out in the market, and to implement modern and futuristic elements.

The concept is actually a roadster with an aggressive stance and powerful two-seater, dominated by the sharp lines and rounded forms and foremost element is the front grille tilt, as in the BMW models from the sixties and seventies. Its doors are open backwards like a car than before the Second World War, while the engine cover opens forward. However there are modern elements as sharp front splitter, large air vents, concave wheels and automatic protective cage.

One thing is certain, this car looks really fascinating and manages to fit as a successor to several famous BMW models like 328, 507 and 3.0 CSL, thanks to the many details which Dejan inserted into his  design.
