When your guys are done with your ZOO Magazine, here is some futuristic babe even I'd wanna ride. Have fun at work ;)

(I order everyone to enlarge these images by clicking on them...!)

"BMW has already announced two hybrid vehicles that will debut at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show, so the fact that its latest concept is also a hybrid shouldn't be terribly surprising. However, we didn't expect the Vision EfficientDynamics concept to be a turbo-diesel hybrid that uses a lithium-polymer battery pack and be capable of a 0-62 mph sprint in a mere 4.8 seconds. If the M division ever decided to build a hybrid the results couldn't be too different from what we see here.

BMW claims the Vision EfficientDynamics concept can run on power from the diesel engine alone, the electric motors alone, or with any combination of those sources. When maximum thrust is called for, like in passing situations, the combined output of the engine and two motors is 356 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Quite impressive when you remember this is only a three-cylinder engine displacing 1.5-liters. Perhaps the replacement for displacement is technology, electric motors and a 3076 pound curb weight. Now we just need to wait and see if it will be built..."
