LA Show 2012 Highlights: BMW K2 Powder Ride Concept

This is the BMW Concept K2 Powder Ride, a concept off-roader that has been unveiled at the LA motor show.

Created in conjunction with ski equipment manufacturer K2, the Powder Ride concept is essentially a cosmetically tweaked X1 crossover.

The most obvious addition is the Valencia Orange paint scheme, complete with a fox graphic that runs the length of the cabin – a design that has been lifted straight from one of K2’s limited-edition skis.

Further exterior alterations include a silver finish to the side skirts and to the bottom edges of the front and rear bumpers, dark tinted windows with matt black surrounds and new grey 19-inch alloy wheels. The Power Ride concept also gets an extra 8mm of suspension travel to aid off-road driving.

Attached to the roof-rack is a 320 watt Harman-Kardon stereo system, complete with a 1100 watt amplifier and AKG microphone. Perhaps not the most sensible kit to be using in avalanche-prone mountain ranges.
