I was checking the other thread with the wheels and saw this concept drawings

As you can see from the signature, the name of the artist is Sieghart and the drawings are dated 1999.

This Sieghart guy (first name Oliver) was the interior design chef who was responsible for the Z4 interior.

What interesting is that these drawings have been taken almost unchanged in to the final car. And that was back in 1999 :confused:

So the Zorro and the side roundel were there pretty early on...

That bottom most front end reminds me of 70s Pontiacs.

What's with the BMW<->Pontiac connections? This one doesn't even have any kidneys on it.

Since you mentioned it, indeed there are some kind of strange similarities between Pontiac and recent BMWs :eeps:

That's Anders Warming's signature, not Van Honkydonk.

Look at the bolsters on the seats in the concept sketch - real sport seats. :thumbup:

That's a Z8 wheel in the cockpit sketch... but the Z8 and Z4 interiors are very close.

That is quite correct, Daniel.

This would be my signature.

I do have to add that those sketches truly do take me back. We had one hell of a party the night we drew those sketches. I had never heard of some of those substances before that evening. But, wow, were they entertaining.

Regardless, I will pass along your compliments.
