BMW 1 Series: Design Coupé
Adrian Van Hooydonk, Head of Design - BMW Automobiles explains the secret
behind the "shape of power": the exterior of the BMW 1 Series Coupé. A
long bonnet, a set-back trapezoidal greenhouse and short overhangs: the BMW
1 Series Coupé looks quick, even when stationary. The clearly defined
shoulder line and long wheelbase confidently highlight its perfect
proportions from its muscular front to its powerful and wide rear. In line
with legendary BMW 2002 tradition, the new BMW 1 Series Coupé provides the
ideal measurements to deliver optimum driving dynamics.
In conversation with BMW's former head of design Chris Bangle

Bangle, former head of design at BMW, shares his views on what caught his
eye at the show.
