BMW Garmisch — Pebble Beach Concours
In 1970 a BMW concept vehicle called the Garmisch made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Designed by Marcello Gandini for Bertone, the Garmisch was created as an independent design proposal to showcase the studio’s capabilities. “The original idea came from Nuccio Bertone himself, who wanted to consolidate our existing relationship with BMW by designing a surprise show car for the Geneva Motor Show,” recalled Marcello Gandini, who was in charge of Bertone’s design department at the time. However, the car on display at Pebble Beach this year was not that exact car. Following the Geneva Motor Show, the Garmisch was shipped back to BMW; however, the car never arrived. And, in an even stranger twist, it was never seen again. This BMW Garmisch is a careful re-creation of that missing original.
