I've no idea why they made that video, it explained nothing about carbon fibre other than its light strong etc stuff we already know. The question is what's new in the way bmw use it?

I'm excited to see it in real life but it's gotta have cool wheels on it.
I saw an F10 M5 the other day and it's straight gorgeous.

Probably a prelude to the upcoming announcements of how BMW is using CFRP in other models like the new 7-series.

Not everyone knows what you or I know.

One thing they didn't touch on is the proprietary cloth weave pattern used for their production process. I would like to know more about that.

I'd like to know what happened to the old announcer/narrator? Remember the long-haired ponytail deep-voice monotone guy?

Jump at 0:44 or 1:39 and you'll find that they are showcasing the carbon fiber side detail from the R8 V10. Hah!
