BMW Garmisch with Stephan Milev
That’s how it goes when you have so many cars….over time, some go missing, and eventually one is lost completely.

This is what happened to BMW’s Garmisch concept car from 1970.  The Garmisch was designed at the legendary Italian house Bertone, and exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show –  its modern lines clearly influenced the design of the first 5 series in 1972.

The original concept car has disappeared, untraceable to this day. Maybe it will turn up as a barn find in fifty years.

But BMW didn’t want to wait that long, and rebuilt the car from the original design documents. The documents were all in black and white, so for colour, they had to consult the car's original designer: Marcello Gandini, who created iconic sports cars such as the Lamborghini Miura and Countach, and the Lancia Stratos. The car was rebuilt by hand in Turin, in much the same way as the original 50 years ago

The reborn Garmisch was exhibited at the Concorso d'Eleganza 2019 at Lake Como, and   photographed by Stephan Milev at locations around Italy's Piedmont region using mostly Polaroid film on a 10 x 8 wooden Deardorff camera from 1948. The resulting film images were scanned and graded by our artists in the Stuttgart studio to enhance the colour mood of the series.
