Anke praises her great team with Julia Obermeier as client, creative and even stylist if need be; Clemens Grosslercher, who transcended the Great Wall, without even having seen it; Marten Rauschenberg, the producer, who knew more about the country, the people, food, and architecture than everybody else; the wonderful assistant, as well as Hero Car including its escorts and security, but also the local team and Jenny Cremer for the fine tuning while retouching the motifs.

The photos and the concept car were presented for the first time at the Auto Guangzhou 2015, one of the largest international auto shows. "The BMW Concept Compact Sedan reveals the potential we see in a compact sedan,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “It not only gives the driver and passengers generous amounts of space within a compact area but does so while providing the sporting ability you’d expect from BMW and an elegance otherwise only available in large BMW sedans. The quality and intrinsic value of the BMW Concept Compact Sedan are clear signals of our premium intentions for the car."
