Get outta my dreams, get into my car! By simply staring at those cars will either make you want to go gaga again for some 80s music or want to throw them out of your mind once and for all.
Garage Italia Customs is reviving the 80s with BMW’s i3 and i8 models. Why the eighties? Well, as it turns out, the design house has taken its inspirations from Memphis Design, a furniture designer based in Italy.
Any guy or gal who grew up in Milan during the 80s probably knew a thing or two about this furniture company, which by all means has a knack for making eccentric combinations.
As a result of this, Garage Italia has custom created these two BMWs in a strange combination of stripes, polka dots and psychedelic colors. Name it, it’s probably there on the car already.
Bringing back the 80s pop culture into these futuristic creations has clearly surpassed every expectation, this is what Lapo Elkan (the Creative Director and Chairman of the studio) thinks about the MemphisStyle one-offs.
Luckily, you won’t likely see any of these on the road since these are just one-offs. But to those who couldn’t get enough or want to see Garage Italia’s masterpiece in all its glory, well, you just got lucky again! In May, the custom car designer is bringing the BMW i8 MemphisStyle to the 2017 Frieze New York art exhibit. Catch it while you can!
