1970 BMW 2200 TI Garmisch by Bertone

The 1970 Garmisch resulted from a design produced by the Bertone Design Centre for a car with the mechanics of the BMW 2200 TI, aimed at updating the look of the BMW range. Bertone devoted particular attention to the details, especially the large rectangular front headlamps, the linear motif which runs along with the wings, and the honeycomb-effect covering of the rear windscreen. It is a four-seater coupé.

The car was presented at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, and its sober, elegant styling reveals a new trend set to shape the evolution of Italian design. The design was becoming more concrete, more closely linked to the world of production, a need springing from the difficult conditions facing the Italian automobile industry at the beginning of the 1970s.
