The retro-looking 2002ti Garmisch concept was shown for the first time in May at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy. The car is based on the 2002ti coupe and has been styled to be a nod to the now-vanished Bertone original of the 1970s.

The car uses a 1,990-cc carburetor engine that develops a tiny amount of power by today’s standards, 119 hp.

Whereas the Garmisch is a look at the past, the Vision M Next is a glimpse at the future. Shown at the end of June as a progressive hybrid sports car inspired by the 1972 BMW Turbo and the i8, the concept will be shown for the first time in America at the event.

At the heart of the car lies a combination between a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric system that have a combined power output of 600 hp. And it’s of course autonomous.

“Where the BMW Vision iNEXT illustrated how autonomous driving is set to transform life on board our vehicles, the BMW Vision M NEXT demonstrates how state-of-the-art technology can also make the experience of driving yourself purer and more emotionally engaging,” said at the time of the car’s reveal BMW’s design VP Adrian van Hooydonk.

In addition to the two concepts, the electric MINI Cooper SE will also be on site, showing Americans how the brand plans to handle the electrification trend. The other highlight of the Brits this year, the MINI GP, will also be there in “preview” form.
