    Meet the newest addition to BMW's lineup...and yes...it is FWD...

    Mercedes has the A-class, Audi has (will have) the A1 and now BMW has the 0 series. It's based on the MINI Cooper S so despite being FWD it doesn't tarnish BMW's reputation for building fun to drive cars. I'm a little unsure how the finished product came out but I'm still going to post it.

    Interesting. Well done.

    Maybe the 1-series should be called the 2-series...

    BMW has 1, 3, 5, 6, 7.
    Mercedes has C, E, S, G.
    Audi has A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8.
    Cadillac will have A, C, X.

    Audi's naming scheme is the only one that follows any sort of pattern.

    Mercedes' does to some extent make sense with the A, B, C, E, G letters. But when you get to CLS, SLK, CLK it sort of falls apart.

    How do people draw so well.

    Was it natural? Did you learn and take lessons?

    My god, nice.

    Nice drawing.

    BMW having a FWD car(regardless of size) would be a very bad idea & could very well tarnish BMW's rep, as it should!!


    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    It is my understanding that the BMW Mini has a Renault engine. Talk about German purity and image!

    It's actually a Peugeot engine but who says BMW can't put one of it's own engines in it.

    I really like the grille and headlight treatment - unique for BMWs but still in the family

    Audi's naming scheme is the only one that follows any sort of pattern.
    BMW follows a pattern.
    It goes up in odd numbers apart from the 6, which is a coupe and bespoke in terms of design, despite being based on the 5. The SUVs follow the same number pattern in relation to the sedan/hatch which they are based X1,X3,X5.


    Don't forget Lincoln's confusing naming system: MKZ, MKS, Town Car and SUVs/Crossovers: MKX, MKT, Navigator.

    It needs bigger wheels...

    Do you think you could draw it with 30" or even 35" rims?
