.. BMW has gone all Art Deco with series 6! Look at the “new” BMW series 5,6 and 7 I see the same elements that made the Chrysler building a landmark of Art Deco. The bold lines, the macho look, the curves, the arcs: it's all there!
Art deco is back, and BMW has definitely captured it at its best! The car features the unmistakable elegance and dramatic forms of art nouveau. I don't think it is appropriate to say that the car would necessarily fit in a saloon in Paris around 1909, but it's safe to say, given the gap of time since then, and the practicalities of designing an art deco mobile, that BMW has brought Paris of 1909 into the 21 st century car!
The ultra modern body, the stark lines, the roaring engines BMW packs into these cars - it all brings back those parts of Miami we've seen, only on nostalgic movies for the past decades.
It's not just jewellery, architecture, fashion and posters. Art deco is in the streets today. Look at the vintage 1933 Pierce-Arrow Silver Arrow, The Cord, the 1938 Delahaye, The Morgan Aeromax GT coupe, the Jaguar Mark V, The BMW series 6!
Retro has always been a strong influence in the car industry world-wide, and we hope to see many more cars to come and bring some of that 20's 30's 50's magic back.
