BMW develops steam-powered car that can reach 185MPH - 97MPH faster than Doc's train! (https://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=581&e=2&u=/nm/20040923/tc_nm/autoshow_bmw_hydrogen_dc)

Is it just me or is that possibly the ugliest car BMW has ever built?

I dunno, Walter. Not that this one is particularly nice, but BMW has really offered up some stinkers in the past few years. Particularly if you lump in the new Rolls. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/pukeface.gif I think this one can be forgiven a few eccentricities as a one-off speedster. But the production Sevens look like they were drawn up after a three day bender in a Honda.

I think in the last few years they created some terrible looking cars. I think they lost their sense of style.

Only two recent cars of theirs that I have enjoyed the styling in were the Z3 and Z8. I thought the Z4 was terrible looking, and with its features exagerated in this monstrosity of a spped car it looks even worse.

The Z8 is pure automotive art. *drool*

Yeah the Z8 really is automotive art. A good successor to the ole 507. I still like the 507 better though.

I believe it is a hydrogen powered car that produces steam and not steam powered?

And yes sort of ugly at that.
