Evolve x BMW Park Lane Showroom Takeover

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This weekend gone BMW Park Lane gave us the keys to their doors so we could display our cars in their prestigious showroom. For those outside of the UK BMW Park Lane is situated in Mayfair, London which is one of the most expensive areas in the city. You'll also know this if you have ever played UK based Monopoly! For those in the USA it is this dealership equivalent of BMW NYC in Manhattan.

We believe this takeover is the first of its kind and we were extremely humbled to have this opportunity. I used to go past this dealership as a kid and one day wishing I could buy a BMW from there. This weekend we filled every car space in the dealership with our project/collection cars.

That's awesome! It's cool when dealers let you do something like this. It's a good look for both companies and enthusiast

I guess this is the culmination of years of your hard work. Heck, I've walked in that showroom few times thinking it would be nice to just show up and drive off in one of the exhibits, and i don't even live in the country. Congrats!

Amazing collection Imran. But you're just missing a 1M Really cool to see the best of the best in one place on display like that. Wish we had a dealer nearby that would do something similar.

All these beautiful BMWs (especially the Imola Red M5)... and then the unfortunate G80 M3 to ruin the flow.

F80 will age so gracefully…albeit I'm a bit partial owning one.
