    Another E31 "Touring"... hope you don't mind

    Hi!

    Altough I'm a member here for nearly a year, I was rather a rare visitor... (Sorry for that!)
    Today I followed a link from Harry (8Harry8), from the german 8 Series Forum and saw that he posted my 850Ci "Shooting Brake" images.
    Judging by the comments, seems like some of you liked those pictures, so maybe you are also intrested to see another one:



    Normally I work as a 3D modeller (unfortunately no longer for GM/Opel) but sometimes I do 2D stuff like this just for fun.
    Like Harry, I also live in Germany and have an 840Ci and a 540iA (E34).

    Best Regards,
    Steve

    for my taste, the roofline drops down too far at the rear

    An interesting idea, I like the estate look, a little like the old Lynx Eventer job on the Jaguar XJS. The roof line on this latest one looks like 3 or 5 series, works quite well

    What you should know: Steve is a fan of Aston Martin and Fisker - like me - an the roof design of Rainers "Touring" remembers to the Aston shooting breakes of the well known Sultan of Brunei...

    Hi Harry! Thanks for the kind words!

    As Harry said, I'm a fan of Aston Martin cars (nearly bougth a DBS V8 instead of the 840Ci) and I found those Shooting Brake conversions always very interesting.
    They are not the prettiest but certainly one of a kind cars...
    I think an 8 series would lend itself perfectly for such a (real) conversion, thoug the huge roof and tiny pillars would pose some challenges.
    It would be nice to see what Roos Engineering would do with an E31.

    Best Regards,
    Steve
