BMW Nazca C2 By Sabino Leerentveld
This year, it’s the 20th anniversary of on of the best sports cars ever made, Italdesign’s BMW Nazca C2. To mark the occasion, Dutch designer Sabino Leerentveld has come up with what can rightly be deemed as the modern interpretation of Nazca C2. Making its appearance at the 1992 Tokyo Motor Show, the BMW Nazca C2 was powered by an Alpina-tuned 5.0-liter V12 engine that produced 350hp at about 350lb/ft of torque. It was able to run from 0-60mph in stunning 3.7 seconds, with its top speed at 203mph.
The modern interpretation, however, features sleek and elegant design as well as aerodynamic package that have a certain EfficientDynamics flavor to it. Measuring 4400mm long, 1990mm wide and 1110 mm high, the Nazca C2 concept has a wheelbase of 2710mm that adds more to the sporty driving and a lot of BMW’s luxury interior. With aggressive yet modern looks, the concept is a perfect vehicle that auto enthusiasts would surely like to see gushing in the streets of tomorrow.
