    These guys are spending a lot of money on this:

    You mean more than they spent at Legends or Monterey or Laguna Seca :)

    Attended the first day yesterday. Super interesting. Basically BMW is showing their 4 divisions' interpretation of their vehicle of the future. Motorcycles, Mini, cars and Rolls Royce.
    To me the most impressive one is... the Rolls Royce. With the BMW motorcycle a close second. Both are stunningly interesting design exercises that are actually fully operational.
    Going back to a conference on Design and Architecture today.

    Bo, Mike, Paul and I were there last night for the RR debut, stunning but very different. It looked better in person than pics or sketches.

    Nice Chris! Yes it is a car that needs to be experienced three dimensionally. 2D photos cannot comprehend it. Video works a little bit better.

    My bad shaky cam of it...

    There were a few tips of the hat to the coupe, albeit in visual form only. Mainly in the interactive displays.
