BMW digs back into its archives to recreate the vintage Garmisch. The original vehicle was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 1970, while the new version just debuted at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.

The Garmisch was commissioned by automobile designer Nuccio Bertone, appearing under BMW's “Neue Klasse” line. At the time of its creation, the car boasted a considerably futuristic design both inside and out. The interior, for example, featured a large mirror popping out of the glove box, while the radio was positioned upright at the center console.

Following its reveal at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, the Garmisch disappeared while on its way to BMW’s headquarters in Munich. It is widely reported that no one knows where the car went, even to this day, as little trail of the model was left behind as well, save for some black and white photographs.

Now, however, the Garmisch has been recreated using a digital 3D design plan and the memory of Bertone’s former design leader Marcello Gandini. The front of the car showcases two diamond-shaped grilles and thin headlights, while the rear finds the back glass being covered by a geometric cage. Cream-colored leather drapes the interior of the Garmisch to round out the design details.

Put together by hand in similar fashion as the original model, you can get a look at BMW's recreated Garmisch via the gallery above.
