Design student conjures up a concept taking the best bits from the BMW 8 Series and Z8 roadster.
These renderings reveal what would happen if the iconic BMW 8 Series and the Henrik Fisker-designed Z8 roadster had a love child. Dubbed the BMW MZ8, the design study is the work of Christophe Jourd'hui, and comes quick on the heels of the transportation design student's Ferrari Getto concept. He chose BMW for his latest creation in order to mark 40 years of its Motorsport department. There aren't many details about the spyder other than it was penned "in honor of the Z8 and 8 Series."
The standout features are the shark-style nose, a unique interpretation of the double kidney grilles, and the removable hardtop. The designer has also taken liberties with the engine layout, opting for a mid-engine setup whereas the 8 Series and Z8 were both front-engined.
