BMW’s i Vision Circular is a futuristic EV concept that demonstrates the circular economy, while also being optimized for closed material cycles as well as achieving a rate of 100% recycled materials or 100% recyclability. Aside from bio-based and certified raw materials, things that have already passed through a product life cycle were used in the manufacturing process.
Let’s face it, the 2007 BMW Z4 M Coupe was not designed to go off-road from the factory. However, this owner modified their vehicle with a custom rear hatch, Ground Control suspension system, and 17-inch Black Rhino wheels wrapped in Toyo Open Country A/T all-terrain tires, making it off-road ready.

Turkey-based designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem has wowed us in the past with his custom BMW motorcycles, and his latest is no exception. Based one the BMW S1000RR superbike, the “Phantom” looks to be straight from a science fiction movie, with its cyberpunk-inspired frame. His most famous bike is the “Alpha,” which drew inspiration from sharks and designed to race at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Just like its predecessor, this model has a clean front-end, while the back boasts a powerful stance.
Kingston Custom took the BMW Motorrad R 18 and transformed it into the Art Deco-inspired “Spirit of Passion,” but the most surprising thing is that he left the original frame intact. Modifications include handmade Kingston design bodywork, complete with unique handlebars and mudguard. The exhaust has been given a Kingston Roadster makeover, while his saddle is drawn from his shop’s range of universal accessories.
