Several new BMW models are set to debut at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance set during Monterey Car Week in August, including production models and concept vehicles.
BMW Group will hold a press conference on the morning of Aug. 15 on the 18th green of the Pebble Beach Golf Course to announce the new vehicles. The new production models will be based on last year’s concept, the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupe.
In addition, BMW will premiere two new concept cars: the hybrid sports car BMW Vision M Next and a recreation of the 1970 BMW Garmisch concept. Displaying these two cars together makes a powerful statement about the brand’s commitment to preserving the past while making strides toward the future.
The Vision M NEXT is the latest in the BMW NEXT line of concepts designed to show how the technology of the future could be incorporated into the BMW lineup. But while previous NEXT concepts have emphasized autonomous technology, the 600-horsepower Vision M NEXT plug-in hybrid is designed for the driving lovers of the future.
The Garmisch concept is faithfully designed to look as much as possible as the 1970 model, despite limited documentation of its specs and design and the sole concept ever made having disappeared decades ago.
