These renderings reveal what would happen if the iconic BMW8 Series and the Henrik Fisker-designed Z8 roadster had a love child. Dubbedthe BMW MZ8, the design study is the work of Christophe Jourd'hui, and comesquick on the heels of the transportation design student’s FerrariGetto concept. He chose BMW for his latest creation in order to mark 40 yearsof 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.
