BMW Blue Dynamics land yacht concept for sailing down a windy road, It is a wind-powered vehicle that set a land-speed record of 126.1 m/h earlier this year,  The designer is Stefan Radev.

We’d like to present a conceptual design for a BMW Blue Dynamics Land Yacht by Stefan Radev. Purely an exercise in “what if?” the renderings show a premium version of a super-sleek sail car that combines the “distinctive style and emotional character” of a BMW with the “exclusiveness of a yacht” and a zero-emission power source.

It is said to be an interpretation of the idea through the “eyes of a premium automobile brand like BMW, that has taken a path of creating environmentally-friendly cars, who carry a distinctive style and emotional character.” The name “Blue Dynamics” combines a symbolic connection of the wind and BMW’s “efficient dynamics”, “active hybrid” greener emission programs. The playground of “Blue Dynamics” is an open space like deserts or beaches with typical wind conditions. After BMW explains it, we still fail to get a clear picture of how it really works. We might just have to wait to see it for ourselves.

BMW was challenged to combine the style of a premium vehicle with the exclusiveness of a yacht and to be powered by the wind. That’s how they came up with this vehicle consisting of three wheels and a sail. The virtual concept allows access to the cockpit through an elevating windscreen, and the rigid sail can be moved automatically or manually. While the car only exists in computer form today, you can see the optimism of the designer in this image of the dashboard. There’s a wind direction dial and a spedometer – which goes up to 420 km/h. Radev’s original description of the Land Yacht is after the jump.
