Late last year a high ranking insider revealed that BMW was working on a “green” super-sports car based along the lines of the M1 Homage concept. BMW development board member Dr Klaus Draeger has now revealed to AutoTelegraaf that the company is planning to unveil a sustainable sports car concept at the upcoming Frankfurt event.
The concept will pack the latest in BMW EfficientDynamics technology, but rather than just showcasing powertrain advancements the concept will feature sustainable design and material elements.
According to previous reports, BMW is studying the viability of the project, with the ultimate goal to create a two-seater sports car that showcases all of firm’s most sophisticated environmental technology. A limited production run would be timed for release at the end of 2012.
The car could potentially serve as a direct rival to the top-selling Audi R8 and upcoming Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Gullwing.
