The 1970 Garmisch was the result of 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. It is a four-seater coupé. Bertone devoted particular attention to the details, especially the large rectangular front headlamps, the linear motif which runs along the wings and the honeycomb-effect covering of the rear windscreen.
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. 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 1970’s.
