BMW i-FD is a Concept Study for a Green Sports Sedan
While BMW is officially keeping quiet about the matter, understandably, it’s not a question if the Bavarian automaker will introduce a four-door model into the range of it's newly launched i-sub brand, but when.
Currently, we're looking forward to the presentation of the production versions of the i3 hatchback and the i8 sports coupe, both of which have been spied on several occasions.
Until the time comes for BMW to either inform us about its future plans or better yet, tease us with a concept model, we have a study to show you. It's called the BMW i-FD and it was created by independent industrial designer Feliciano Ruy-Díaz from Valencia, Spain.
The young designer says that the inspiration for the styling of the i-FD came from the work of renowned Spanish architect and structural engineer Santiago Calatrava as well as the forms of ancient Greek armor and the lines of a white shark.
The goal was to create a unique looking sports sedan with a design that conveys both strength and dynamism.
Díaz doesn’t tell us what kind of powertrain he had in mind while designing the i-FD, but we reckon that the sedan would probably feature a similar all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid setup as the i8 coupe.
