Over the years BMW has been known for making some radically designed vehicles – many of which never leave the headquarters in Bavaria. BMW has unveiled the secrecy of the underground garage – take a look a this large collection of photos to see the cars that BMW keeps down there.
Many one off cars can be found here like the M8, the V10 powered X5 and even the M3 pickup truck! It's hard to believe how many cars never see the light of day!
The only M8 ever made, this concept was the right concept at the wrong time. During the Gulf War gas prices sky-rocketed and caused concern about the release of this mosnter. This was also basically the test bed for the McLaren F1 V12 engine.
