Z4 M Coupe made out of concrete in China

This is a full scale +1 replica of the Z4 M coupe made of conrete. Yep, you heard that right, not wood, not plastic, not ceramic, not clay. CONCRETE. This is part of a BMW Art car display going up in China and features fully functional doors and glass windows.

WOW! The windows are amazing. I don't think I have ever seen clear concrete before. Simply amazing.

The car does look very cool though, I wouldn't mind buying that as a "gargoyle" for the end of my driveway

That's an awesome idea! Hmmm I would open the hood so it would look like it is roaring

Am I really the only one amazed by how huge the "life size" replica is compared to the people... or rather, how short they are compared to the car.

Now that you say that, they are just about as tall as the car, and it comes up to the top of my stomach.... so that is a little weird.


Guess the car makes them look normal for someone who doesn't have any other height comparison!
