McLaren designer rijdt met BMW oldtimers in het weekend!
“I love BMWs, because the engines are mega, they drive well, and they look great. I was also becoming a professional designer at the time I got into them and began to really appreciate what the brand has done — it’s always had the best-proportioned cars and purity of line, even the base models. My favourite to drive is the 2002, because it’s got a great driving position, bags of torque, and is so involving to drive. But it’s cost me an arm and a leg, much to my wife’s dismay. So, as a thing — a concept car for the road — the Z1 is my favourite. I appreciate modern design, especially as it’s getting harder and harder to do something different. I do, however, think there’s too much styling for styling’s sake in the car industry today. Look at my M535i — the proportions and the simplicity are absolutely spot on.”
