The BMW Skytop Concept: A Fusion of Classic Inspiration and Modern Design

BMW has once again captivated the automotive world with its latest reveal at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. This year, the German automaker unveiled the Skytop Concept, a stunning two-seater coupe that blends contemporary performance with nostalgic design cues. Despite BMW's assertions that the Skytop draws heavily from past icons like the Z8 and the 503, many see it as a reimagined 8 Series with a targa top.

Adrian van Hooydonk, head of BMW Group Design, describes the Skytop Concept as "a truly unique and exotic design, in the tradition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este." He emphasizes that it combines "driving dynamics and elegance at the highest level," akin to its historic predecessors. The parallels to the Z8 roadster are undeniable; the Skytop features thin taillights and a distinctive sharknose front end reminiscent of the early 2000s Z8. Furthermore, the sculpted hood, compact headlights, and unique flat-decked rear are clear nods to the 1950s BMW 503.
