BMW Apollo Streamliner concept redefines form over function
Purpose built land speed record vehicles are not generally good-looking. But Turkish industrial designer, Mehmet Doruk Erdem thinks otherwise.
The BMW Apollo Streamliner concept, here, is an amplification of the term form over function.

The images suggest that the motorcycle is powered by a V-twin engine. Looking at the seat- handlebar-footpeg position, the motorcycle seems built for a sole purpose, decimate the timing chart at Saltlake speed record events.
