BMW Designed A Carbon Fiber Racing Wheelchair For Team USA

Rolling into the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with style.

The gentleman from Bavarian Motor Works have flexed their muscles again for the athletes of Team USA. Last time BMW DesignWorks reimagined the bobsled, this time the Paralympic jocks get to use a wheelchair conjured to be a fully customized racing device. 

Aerodynamically optimized, the three-wheeler is carbon fiber made, and personally fine-tuned to the athlete's body thanks to 3D scans to maximize performance. 

We love that Bimmer is offering a customized ride for the athletes this summer. We'll be tuning in to see how they handle these ultimate driving machines down the track, hopefully with Olympic Gold in sight.
