Successful automakers BMW and Toyota are collaborating on a set of twin exotic cars, which will be confusingly related yet separate. One lovechild will be BMW and one Toyota, but they will share aspects of both brands including design and technology.
BMW and Toyota opt to pair their resources for a set of exotic sports cars. What will they learn during this awesome experiment? Will brands begin to collaborate as well as compete?
The automotive industry is all about smoking the competition. For this reason, the unique union between typically competitive automakers Toyota and BMW has wheels spinning. The talks began back in 2011, where the companies began to strategize how to go about researching new technologies together. By the following year, they had already begun working on electric powertrains and alternative fuel cells, which they spent the next year tweaking. Now the dynamic duo is poised to release its own duo in the form of twin autos engineered for the future.
There is no official release date for the BMW and Toyota twins, and we are curious if the brands will allow fans to vote on the names, which seem to be a popular trend as of late.
Toyota is taking on the next generation battery designs and systems while BMW has been molding the shape of the cars. So far, there are no solid specifications available, though we expect them to dazzle with power as well as aesthetics with a potentially mind-blowing alternative power train. Now that luxury hybrids are proving that they can pump out the horsepower, anything seems possible and companies are immersed in development.
The glorious Lexus LFA supercar highlights exactly what Toyota and Lexus could achieve in the hypercar arena. Toyota will surely prove an asset to BMW.
BMW has plenty to offer the partnership with its futuristic design cues and excitement about futuristic power trains. This could be oh-so good…
