Also known as the 1989 Colani BMW 007.
Colani’s team needed just under six months to realize this concept of a roadworthy sportscar prototype based on a BMW motorcycle engine. The Plexiglas hood fitted in the negatively shaped suitcase form. The low-lying 4-cylinder BMW turbo engine (1000cc) generated 160bhp and was made by Swiss fine-tuners Zoller - power transmission to the Lotus Super Seven rear axle was achieved by using a 4-speed BMW mc gearbox. Special characteristics: the rearview mirror attached to aerodynamic outsets. Only 90cm high and weighing in at a mere 550kg, the experimental sportscar boasted second-to-none acceleration.


Прототип Utah 8 также известен под именем BMW 007 и неспроста – в нем установлен мотоциклетный двигатель BMW объемом 1 литр и мощностью 160 лошадиных сил. Привод, естественно, задний, причем задняя ось была позаимствована у Lotus 7. Автомобиль полностью заточен под спорт: его высота не превышает 90 сантиметров, а снаряженная масса составляет немногим более 550 килограммов.
