Design student creates concept to celebrate the company that was succeeded by BMW.
In 1913, Rapp Motorenwerke – the company that gave birth to BMW in 1917 – was founded. To mark the 100 year anniversary of the founding father of the Bavarian carmaker, design student Dejan Hristov has created the BMW Rapp Concept. Unmistakably a BMW with design cues borrowed from models throughout the years, notably the 60s- and 70s-style front grille, and the high-sitting tailpipes that nod to the 1939 Buegelfalte and the 1968 BMW 2002, the concept also pays tribute to Karl Rapp's aircraft engine manufacturing company with the hood styled on vintage aircraft.
