BMW is gearing up for the online unveiling of its latest design study, the GINA Light Visionary Model. Unlike the BMW M1 Homage concept, this one's actually a runner, as evidenced by the video posted below the fold, showing the concept being driven from the studio into a car carrier then unloaded at the BMW Museum in Munich.

No details about the roadster are available from the BMW-web.tv site, but judging by the open cockpit and massive width, we're expecting something akin the M1, sans roof and sporting many of the design cues found on the homage. Check back for more when the BMW GINA Light Visionary Concept is unveiled on June 10th.

      And test drivers who are native romance language-speakers will say as they step on the gas:

      "VA! -Gina!"

        uh seriously, you actually believed that was real? that's a major photochop. notice how it looks eriely similar to the E92 M3?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Oh yes, looking forward to this one!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Anybody know what artist(s) did the track that played with this? Or what track it is?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Well, the wheels look much better already than the Homage ones so that's a good start. Maybe this is a preview of perhaps (just maybe) another 8-Series?

      Yeah it's a roadster, but still...maybe.

      BIG....ASS.....WHEELBASE......
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yeah, who was the bright one at BMW to call it the Gina? Probably the same person who decided the X6 was a good idea.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks allot better with the cover on it.

        Find it yourself; we're not that close yet King...although after all of this spitting and swallowing..people might start talking...anywho, you might want to look under the original sketch from BMW North America labled 'California Spyder'...maybe even 'Z8'. These 'official' ...cough... sketches came out way back in 05 at the LA Auto Show. Nonetheless, who knows what the car name will eventually be. But you research and do your thing and I'll do mine. I'm sorry to have called you a name (forgive me?) and I'm sorry to have bruised your BMW loyalty. Please forgive me and I will keep in mind that Autoblog is the end all be all in automotive web-reporting.

        Show me those photos from your other sources. And keep in mind that this "dillweed" posts relevant topics on the site he is posting, not posting about other sources that can't been seen by others on the site. So I'm so sorry you are upset that your comment is so lowly ranked but please don't start name call and telling me to "swallow" anything when you make a comment without anything to back it up.
        • 6 Years Ago
        uhh...not really, but I can tell what the car looked like from other sources dillweed. Autoblog is not the only source for auto info dumus. Swallow that.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hm, so it's a concept and it's called Gina... And we already have photos of the car

      Yet another answer to a question nobody had. Thanks BMW.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's why it's a Concept and not the BMW X6.
