At the recent Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, BMW unveiled the Concept 4, a “future-focused interpretation of the BMW Group’s enduring DNA,” the automaker said.
Among the most obvious design changes was what BMW said was the “vertically oriented kidney grille,” which it presented as a “reference” to vehicles such as the historic 328 or 3.0 CSi, the automaker added.
“The kidney grille’s grating contains horizontal trim elements with a faceted cut which create a neat contrast against the sporty design of the front end…” BMW said at the time.
Fast forward to this week when the company unveiled the 202o BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe with a twin-kidney grille that even it describes as “a large connecting design element of the front of the new car.”
Which leads us to this question for the classic car community and especially for fans, and collectors, of the brand: Do you like what BMW has done with its historic twin-kidney grille?
