This Weirdo Tie-Dye Sponge Is Michelin's Dream Tire

  This Weirdo Tie-Dye Sponge Is Michelin's Dream Tire The Vision is an airless tire with a whole slew of other strange features.The tire would be made from bio-sourced and biodegradable materials, including natural rubber, paper, tin cans, wood electronic and plastic waste as well as a handful of other recyclable items to minimize its environmental impact. It would also be airless so you wouldn't have to worry about flats.

This is a special Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack because we’re comparing two cars that look nearly identical on the outside. They’re both 600hp BMW 6-Series Gran Coupes, but the similarities between the B6 and M6 start to fade after that.

This year that far-forward- looking show car with the fully enveloped wheels has morphed into the vastly more down-to-earth BMW i Vision Dynamics concept . The tires are visible, and the doors open normally, but being an i brand car, it still bristles with innovation. First of all, the propulsion is 100

On the occasion of its 100th birthday last year the BMW brand showed off a wild concept called the Vision Next 100. This year that fanciful four-gull-wing-doored coupe with the fully enveloped wheels has morphed into the vastly more down-to-earth BMW i Vision Dynamics concept. The tires are visible and the doors open normally, but being an i brand car, it still bristles with innovation.

The teaser emphasizes the model's long hood and large wheels, which look a bit more realistic than the ones on the Vision 6. The interior has also been toned down slightly from renderings we saw of the previous model's interior, although the minimalist dashboard looks familiar as do the white seats and circular instruments near the steering wheel.

First of all, the propulsion is 100 percent electric. There's no word yet on the battery chemistry but BMW is promising a range of 373 miles, a top speed of over 120 mph, and acceleration from 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds. The production variant of this concept will be one of 12 pure electric cars on offer at BMW by 2025. And while the press release didn't mention it, Klaus Frhlich, board member in charge of development mentioned that as electrification permeates the BMW core models, the innovation that will distinguish i models will be autonomy in the near future. So we may see some level of autonomy making its debut in this model.

Beyond that, design director Adrian van Hooydonk points out some innovative aspects of the i Vision Dynamics' design. It is designed around luxury gran coupe proportions, informed by the i brand's "I do more with less" aesthetic. The long wheelbase, flowing roof-line, minimal panel gaps and flush glass set an aerodynamically efficient and sporty tone, while the interrupted side-window belt-line graphic (in this case with a kick-up at the B-pillars) cements the new car's relationship with other i stablemates. A windshield-to-backlite glass roof combines with the expansive side windows to afford an almost uninterrupted view out—an attribute that will become even more important when all occupants are free to enjoy the scenery, thanks to partial or full autonomy.

"Here, visionary solutions and future-ready concepts become reality for the first time. But BMW i also acts as a spearhead of innovation for our other brands. The BMW i Vision Dynamics allows us to show right now what another electric BMW might look like.

Despite needing far less cooling than a combustion-powered car would, the iconic kidney "grilles" are retained, morphed into a single form and filled in with white body-color panels (a look that unfortunately heightens their resemblance to a pair of beaver teeth). Flanking the grille in front are ultra-slim freestanding LED headlamps that still manage to evoke the four-eyed look of all recent BMWs. These are echoed by similarly slim hockey-stick lamps at the rear, hovering above large L-shaped "air extractor" forms that tie the i Vision Dynamics' looks to mainstream BMWs like the forthcoming X7 three-row SUV.

Expect future electric cars from BMW i to derive design inspiration from this one.

Refreshing or Revolting: Mazda RX Vision vs. Mazda Vision Coupe .
<p>Which futuristic Mazda concept wore it better?</p>On the outside, both cars have a remarkable amount in common. Yes, the RX Vision is two years old and has two fewer doors than the Vision Coupe, but if you saw both on the street, there would be no doubt they're related. They have very similar sloping rooflines, and the sheet metal almost has a liquid appearance.In fact, most of what looks like design lines are actually light reflecting off the curved surfaces and flared fenders.
