I found this nice video of this wonderful pilot that was already world rallye champion.
This is a 2004 video of his WRC victory.

Concept -- 2008 New BMW Z10

I've found some info and pics at the internet about some new BMW that perhaps will be out in 2008.
In this case is a BMW Z10, that will have a probable V10 5liter engine, the same as the M5 and M6 actually but tuned up to something like 550bhp what would make the Z10 one of the fastest car in the world...And one of the most beautiful too!
Here are some concept pics i've found:
