From gesture-controlled infotainment systems, to ambient lighting changes, customized scents, a larger heads up display and the ability to maneuver itself into and out of parking spaces, it’s a step far into the future. It was all announced during the model’s release June 10, but how do you go about designing the look for such a spectacular car?

BMW shared a few photos from the design process on their Facebook page July 15, from the initial sketches, to a full scale drawing, to the carving of a clay model and stitching of leather for the seats. Despite the technological innovations present in the car, its design is an intricate and gentle process defined by human touch – one that a computer could never replicate or replace.
