A look at BMW's Vision EfficientDynamics
• High-performance concept study with BMW ActiveHybrid technology
visualising the dynamic performance typical of a BMW against the backdrop
of future demands in sustained mobility. BMW Vision EfficientDynamics as a
symbol for the future of Sheer Driving Pleasure in harmony with
• Development aim: The performance of a BMW M Car and a highly emotional
character combined with the fuel economy and emission management of a
modern small car in the premium class. As a result, this unique sports car
offers the most consistent rendition of the BMW EfficientDynamics
• Innovative approach in the context of BMW EfficientDynamics: The
exceedingly good balance of CO2 emission management and driving pleasure
results from a revolutionary vehicle concept developed all in one from the
ground up, achieving a new level of efficiency combined with a unique
driving experience. The overall result goes far beyond the sum total of the
individual features and components in this concept car.
• BMW Vision EfficientDynamics offers a realistic impression of the
unique potential of BMW ActiveHybrid technology and the great innovative
thrust of BMW EfficientDynamics.
• Offering a full-hybrid concept, the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics
concept car is powered by a three-cylinder turbodiesel and two electric motors. Overall
system output is 262 kW/356 hp, maximum torque 800 Newton-metres/590 lb-ft.
All-wheel drive featuring an electric motor on both the front and rear
• Anticipated performance: Acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in
4.8 seconds, top speed 250 km/h (155 mph) (electronically limited) , fuel
consumption in the EU test cycle 3.76 litres/100 km (equal to 75.1 mph
imp), CO2 emissions 99 grams/kilometre.
• As a plug-in hybrid, BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is able to cover the
entire fuel consumption drive cycle under electric power alone. Taking the
sources of energy used for generating the electric power consumed into
account (EU electricity mix), this reduces the CO2 emission rating to just
50 grams per kilometre.
• Electric power is generated without the slightest increase in fuel
consumption through a particularly efficient concept of Brake Energy
Regeneration. Energy is stored in 98 lithium polymer cells. The car is able
to cover a distance of approximately 50 km/31 miles in the electric mode
• Aerodynamics developed with know-how from Formula 1. CX drag
coefficient optimised to just 0.22. Forward-looking energy management uses
the maximum potential available in each case to minimise fuel consumption.
• Technology-oriented body design as a clear expression of consistent
lightweight technology and aerodynamic quality. Design language typical of
the brand, setting clear signals in terms of sporting performance and
• The 2+2-seater concept combines dynamic performance and supreme
efficiency with an enhanced level of all-round function. BMW Vision
EfficientDynamics symbolises BMWs commitment to offer an unprecedented
driving experience for up to four occupants.
• BMW Vision EfficientDynamics comes with gullwing doors opening up to
the side. Innovative, weight-optimised door kinematics makes entering the
car at both front and rear convenient and very easy.
• The interior of this unique 2+2-seater intentionally demonstrates the
very latest in modern technology. At the same time the use of natural
materials underlines BMWs strategy of sustainability borne out through this
• The roof and door inserts made of polycarbonate glass automatically
become darker as a function of incoming light.

Biggest ATV in the world goes through our pit!
OK, after many requests I decided to take our big show bike, the largest
ATV in the world, through our pit. It has 32" tires Silverbacks on it, the
largest ATV tires made. The end of the pit did get a little deep. Check
out the vid of the XMR for comparison of how deep the pit is on a 17"
lifted ATV with 3' of ground clearance.

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
