Imagine being in an F1 car and looking around while driving. This is the simulated experience you would get. The video is recorded in a 360 panorama, so while you play the video, you can rotate however you want while the car is in motion.
What may be very recognizable from the Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol film, here’s the updated convertible variant of the BMW i8, appropriately titled the ‘spyder concept’.
In the video, you can hear the hum of it that matches the sleek body.
It’s a beautiful thing when art carries into everything.
BMW recently unveiled images of their latest BMW i8 Spyder concept car, which is the convertible version of the car Tom Cruise drove in Mission impossible 4 late last year. Unlike the coupe, the Spyder has a two-section folding roof and upward-opening doors. The interior features an 8.8-inch (22.4 cm) screen display, which BMW claims, shows “all the relevant driving information in three-dimensional, high-resolution quality.”
Inside the hood, the hybrid has both a 131 hp electric motor to drive the front wheels and a 223 hp turbocharged gas three-cylinder powering the rear wheels, which allows for front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive. The i8 Spyder tops out at 155 mph, goes from 0-62mph in five seconds, and most impressively, does so while maintaining an impressive 78 miles per gallon!
Even a blind person would probably notice the similarities.
ELLE recycled a year old cover of VOGUE for their cover shot by Peter Lindbergh of actress Carey Mulligan.
The popular image appeared first on the cover of USVogue way back in October 2010, when the modest cover star admitted that the couture gown in question “wouldn’t fit over my arse” so was worn with a towel wrapped around her hips.
Then, in December 2010, the same image appeared on the cover of fellow Condé Nast publication, German Glamour. S o far, so normal.
But whilst swapping images and editorials is a relatively common occurrence in magazines who are under the same publishing umbrella, when the same photograph appeared on the cover of French Elle , which is owned by publishing rivals Hatchette Filipacchi last month, fashion commentators were scratching their heads.
The only explanation for the crossover is that Peter Lindbergh, the German photographer who shot the cover, had kept the rights to the image, meaning he was able to license it out to whoever he pleased.
