BMW Vision ConnectedDrive: Great For Stealing Jewelry

BMW has a new video featuring its futuristic Vision ConnectedDrive concept hitting the roads. The video centers around a rather smug Romeo that uses his ConnectedDrive to help him steal a little something for his lass in the waiting. Frankly, it's a stupid video. But it's an awesome car, so, therefore, worth a watch.

BMW launched its Vision ConnectedDrive concept back at the Geneva Motor Show. Unlike most concept cars that are pretty hardware-focused, BMW was focused more on the road and environment surrounding the car. The ConnectedDrive system features all types of technologies designed to make driving easier, safer, smarter and more enjoyable.

It's these technologies that make up the focus of BMW's new video. It's a rather lengthy mini-feature showing a suave, salt-and-pepper gent driving around town in his BMW and pulling off a jewelry heist with the help of his on-board technologies. And just wait until you get to the "twist" ending... move over Sixth Sense.

I find the video a little long and overdone, but the concept car is a cool one. Prior to this video, most of what we had to go on were BMW press releases, so it's nice to see how the German automaker envisions some of its technologies working on the road. It just would have been nicer to see them working without the chessy heist storyline.

If this car didn't already make you think "James Bond", it probably will now.
