Geneva 2011 – BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Roadster Concept – rpmGo.com

BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Roadster Concept

We’ve talked about BMW’s ConnectedDrive Roadster Concept a few weeks ago here on rpmGO and the automaker brought this very interesting concept to the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show. Nowadays, most of us consider more important to check our Twitter and Facebook accounts rather than driving so it was only a matter of time before an automaker implemented this fact into a car.

On that note, BMW’s ConnectedDrive is trying to offer the best from both worlds, but they didn’t say if this concept will ever get the green light for production. The design of the car is totally different from what we’ve seen before in the last few years; it is way cleaner and aggressive and features a comeback to the angry style, shark-esque style front end. The car was designed under the strict supervision of Adrian von Hooydonk, the company’s new head of design.

The interior is way more impressive than the exterior appearance of the CD, featuring a two-person cockpit that incorporates a completely customizable gauge cluster as well as an enhanced head-up display that delivers a 3D display of driving and communication info.

The sensors located in the front and rear lights monitor the traffic flow, the car monitors the driving environment and has the ability to communicate with other future Vision ConnectedDrive cars. The passenger can browse the Internet and the car can read the drivers calendar and suggests ways of efficiently getting to his/her appointments and meeting in the fastest way via the on-board satellite navigation.

I for one don’t see the point of this car as it has plenty of gadgets and gizmos that will distract us from driving. A car was designed to take us from point A to B, not to allow us to update our Facebook account or Twitter. However, I’m pretty sure that in about 10 years or so, our cars will be somewhat similar to BMW’s ConnectedDrive Roadster Concept.
