BMW AG to open new mega dealership in Berlin...

On May 10th & 11th, 2014 - BMW AG will hold a grand opening of their new premiere factory run dealership in Berlin's Charlottenburg district.

BMW spent 65 -million-euro's for the construction project. Over 300 employees will work here. The new location will replace BMW's next closets dealership which is 45 years old. The new building will be able to display: BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad and also the new i-brand cars (i3 & i8).

BMW customer's can see the car exhibition of 50 New Cars, 200 Used Cars and 200 BMW motorcycles and 15 maxi-scooters.

Overall, designed by architect Peter Lanz complex in Berlin-Charlottenburg consists of three different buildings: BMW is forming as an interpretation of the Berlin block with an anodized aluminum facade on the corner of Imperial Dam and Fair Dam, while the MINI as a black , cubic solitaire (building) located on the north side Kaiserdamm Strasse. The BMW motorcycle center is divided south of the BMW branch in extended spindle direction to the famous Berlin radio tower.

"The new office makes an important and indispensable contribution to Berlin as a cultural and sports capital . The new branch is thus also a symbol of a successful future," says Frank Henkel , Mayor and Senator for Interior and Sports of the State of Berlin.

Roland Krger, Head of Sales Germany , reaffirms the commitment of the BMW Group: "Berlin is the BMW Group is a strategically important location . With the construction of our new branch, we want to give our brands BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad an even stronger presence in the capital. "

With the timely opening in April 2014, the new office will become an attractive center of attraction at the traffic junction between Emperor dam and Dam Trade and invites all Berliners to visit.

I wasn't talking about the i8. I was talking about the surprise car(s ?) that BMW says they will show us for their 100 year anniversary in 2016.

So will the M10 share anything w the i8 other than carbon tech?

I wonder if anyone has seen sketches or sightings

I saw an R4 proto not too long ago so maybe there will be a competitor to that as well

Yeah they do but I seriously doubt that is happening by 2016. The business case for the £100-200k cars is likely to be a lot stronger than the £650-950k car.

I wouldn't be surprised (remember we've had 3 cylinder, FWD, Xdrive, Turbo M) if BMW does have a 918 /P1 hybrid competitor at some point, but not this decade - if they can eventually span the entire car market spectrum and produce amongst the best cars in each category this is likely to put them at top of the global automotive tree.

I hope this time we'll see a McLaren 650s & 911 Turbo S competitor that drives better than a GT3. That would be the thing to have. However I'm also thinking 2016 is less than 2 years away and no spy shots of any Supercar have been taken...

Let's hope it's not the X9 that is the 100th anniversary surprise. Although that would explain the need for a giant new showroom

Would love to visit. 200 BMWs and 200 BMW motorcycles on display, it's like a museum.

"Can we help you?"

"Yes, I'll take an i8, an M4 Coupe, a 760Li, an M6 convertible, an HP4, and an R1250GS. Oh almost forgot - we're in Europe - so I will have a K1300R as well. And an X7 to tow it all out of here!"

I bet this will be an awesome place to visit!

It'll take a dealership this large to fit examples of all of the models they're creating these days....
