Designer Chris Hammersley is taking sport mode to new heights with his BMW Venture concept. Most newer cars come equipped with sport mode, a mode than increases a vehicle's performance to make it more fun to drive. The Venture takes this idea a step further, making sport mode something that transforms the car entirely.

The car comes in two modes: urban and recreation. When in urban mode, the Venture is small and compact. When put into recreation mode, the wheels extend outward, turning the car into a rat rod of sorts. The BMW Venture is a unique look into the future of automotive performance add-ons. Sport mode is currently contained to a car's engine, but it could very well make its way to the body and suspension in the future.
