The good news I think they know it. BMW is teasing that grille arrangement for few times now, first on that "Get the Dee" xelennial monstrousity of a concept (but car itself looks nice), now this.

I agree with you, this is by far best grille BMW makes on anything modern today. Nice sharknose. integrate your dark lights within. Have the "meme" grille taking over the face, yet done right it will work I think. And can work nicely on non ICE cars too. Im looking forward to new 3 series, which this Dee car I think is sounding out right now.

Damn, was excited for 10 minutes of bmws Hybrid V8 insight, only to get 40 seconds :/ (btw that starts at 6:10min mark)

Excited to learn more. 🥵

Narrator forgot to mentionÖ the only IMSA competitor to use components from their production parts bin,specifically for the motor developed by BMW for almost 15 years at the expense and in form of blood sweat and tears of every N63 owner (Guinea pig) since 2008, me being one of them (for all 10 or 11 variants?). 🫠

Funny but functional. Those "cars" move so much air through and around them for cooling and downforce.

It 100% looks good, I know it also serves a purpose too, just poking fun at the last 3 years of absolute headassery at BMW

Agreed, one of the better looking set of ďgrillesĒ BMW has produced in the past couple years, if we can even call them grilles.

The design language is spot-on. Identifies as BMW. Hopefully this carries forward to upcoming LCIs and new model releases.

What should be concerning are the number of parts in the front fascia. Following the interviews over the weekend, BMW and Acura may have a cool design, but will it withstand the rigors of racing wheel to wheel for hours?

Going to be a fun race this weekend.

The sniffer probably won't have a great debut against Acura, Porsche, Cadillac but they have potential.

They're going to sniff all the downforce away from the cars ahead.

Dallara do such a good job building these cars, itís nice to see BMW finally getting involved in higher tier Motorsport again. Looking forward to seeing these cars run at Lemans & the WEC rounds next season.
