BMW at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2008

This year the BMW Group Design team took up the time-honoured tradition of designing cars exclusively for the Concorso d'Eleganza and unveiled its BMW M1 Homage. This design study, inspired by the BMW M1 and BMW Turbo, embraces tradition and modernism to give an insight into BMW's own vision of a historically inspired automotive future.

Voted "Best of Show" by the Jury to take the Trofeo BMW Group was the Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Touring from the year 1949. Count Giannino Marzotto had acquired the Ferrari 166 MM from Enzo Ferrari, which was then given an aerodynamic coupé body by Touring based on their trademark superleggera, or lightweight, construction method. This model was exhibited at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show.
