Awesome Autos, from Mighty Motorcycles to Spikey Supercars

— October 2, 2009 — Autos
As we all know, BMW is a staple within the auto industry. Who doesn't want to drive around in a shiny new BMW? I know I do. Even as they have branched out to other markets (hello, BMW park bench), BMW designs never fail to impress with their unbelievable innovation.

From mighty motorcycles to spikey supercars, check out all the beyond belief BMW designs and products.

Implications - **Dig deeper

From wind-powered sports cars to amalgamated automobiles, car companies need to stay on top of technological and design trends. If they neglect to do so, their competitors can take over and dominate the category as they prove to consumers that they understand their needs. Therefore, by continuing to produce innovative features and styles, the car company will remain on top of the consumer's mind.
