This concept car shows off advances made by BMW in the America's Cup. The use of carbon fibre hulls in sailing boats and the study of torsion during the regattas provided valuable data for the creation of chassis and bodies for BMW's standard models. This project also promotes the recycling of sails which, thanks to their resilience in adverse conditions, can be reused as canopies in the cabriolet models.
