BMW Designworks 787 – If I Were A Billionaire


You have to hand it to those guys at BMW Designworks. They come up some of the coolest toys in the world. A separate entity from the car side of BMW, Designworks has had their hands in the design of tons of cool toys for boys; from cellphones to John Deere tractors (everyone needs one of those).

For their latest brain storming session, Designworks thought it would be cool to create a custom interior for the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. BWM Designworks pictured the jet as a cross between a James Bond Villain and a super successful Gen-Xer. As you can see from the following photos, the interior is ultra modern and befitting the DesignWorks look. The bar has a glass floor so you can look down and see your car (a BMW of course). The theater uses a wall of the 787 for the screen.

The interior was created by Designworks to showcase their abilities at the upcoming Hamburg Aircraft Interior Expo. Nobody has actually ordered a Designworks 787 yet. However, I’m sure once a few well heeled billionaires get a look at the drawings, Designworks may get an order or two.

    Upa, que belleza

  2. Mubin says:

    Only a saudi Prince or a Russian Oil Tycoon or a corrupt African president will be buying one of these.


    Im not GOING TO STOP!

      This isn’t going to get you what you want. First write a post that is worthy of being posted on John’s blog and then email it to him, asking to be a guest poster.

      Otherwise, you are just wasting your breath.

      1. Marc says:

        and irritating the community… 👿

      2. is it really his breath he’s wasting :mrgreen:

    2. Court says:

      Mubin I’m sure that John would let you publish something if it was worthy of being published.

      1. blogdinero says:

        when John see the post, tonight, surely he will erase that.

    3. Ed Lau says:

      LOL! John doesn’t like stupid tactics like this. There would’ve been better ways to ask him to let you guest blog but none of them are going to work now.

  3. Cognoscente says:

    Hey, if nobody has ordered one, you can still be the first John. 😈

  4. Simonne says:

    You could always take a loan to supplement the missing amount 😀

  5. manroe says:

    Cool design. This would be a impulse purchase for the billionaires.

    1. Matt Jones says:

      They may be billionairs but I doubt this would be an ‘impusle purchase’… I guess most of us will never know…

  6. Natron says:

    I usually do like to be able to see my BMW while I am flying!

  7. You should have embedded an optional play .wav file of Jay-Z’s BIG PIMPIN’ to go along with those pics. Talk about ultimate luxury. Wow!

  8. manroe says:

    That would be the largest loan sanctioned.

  9. Liza says:

    Oh.. looks more like a *spaceship* of a billionaire to me though 😀

  10. Ronaldo says:

    You can enjoy BMW Designworks for less: just buy a small business jet by Embraer, only 2 million dollars. :smile:

  11. Hey John!! i see a PR update for your website..homepage is now 6. congrats!!!

    1. Matt Jones says:

      You must be kidding me… i have kept as a top commentator for weeks, and I just slipped off the list for one night and its updated! 😡 I’m gona investigate…

  12. Amanda says:

    I think I will go pick one up tomorrow 😛

  13. Nate W. says:

    OMG. Sign me up.

  14. Eric says:

    I’ll be flying around in one of these in 10 years… mark my words.

    Care to join me?

    1. Matt Jones says:

      Care to share your master plan? 😈

      1. Shaun Carter says:

        It must be a secret.

  15. Ronaldo says:

    I hope our president doesn’t hear about this 787. He might wanna sell his brand new Airbus A-319 and buy a 787, especially with this huge bar… 😈

  16. Jaxia says:

    Oh wow, I’m drooling. That thing is sexy!

  17. Mama Duck says:

    Oh, that is SWEET. I love that!

  18. Monty Loree says:

    While it’s a gorgeous machine,
    It doesn’t seem to be built in the ever growing mind set of reducing fuel consumption.
    Is this new jet going to be fashionable as fuel prices go through the ceiling?

    1. Eric says:

      I’m just going to go ahead and state the obvious.

      Someone who is going to buy an aircraft like this could care less how expensive it is to refuel it.

      For example, does the owner of the original Hummer, costing around $100,000 care if it costs him $150 to fill up his tank? You tell me,


      1. Shaun Carter says:

        Right on… fuel costs would not even be on a billionaire’s radar.

    2. Or they could come up with a hybrid to target clean-and-green filthy rich clientele.

      1. I doubt you can be clean and green while your filthy rich…. To be green they would have to fly commercial and not waste all that fuel on their own plane.

        1. Shaun Carter says:

          What if they made it run on solar power??? Not realistic, but if you fly above the clouds it could generate some reliable electricity.

    3. It will be for those who don’t care about fuel prices anyway!

  19. DMOZ says:

    Thats awesome!

  20. You can see a BMW in the cargo bay! I didn’t know BMW was this diversified.

    1. Marc says:

      I love the view of the BMW in the cargo bay :) I thought that was an extra-special touch. Especially for those North American billionaires who have been wanting a comfortable way to bring their favourite vehicle out to the Autobahn.

  21. if you gotta ask, you can’t afford it.

  22. Shaun Carter says:

    This is my motto in life when it comes to dreams of mine (especially my Ferrari fetish):

    Anything is possible…

  23. Matt Jones says:

    How long till you become a billionaire then John?

    1. Who needs billions when you already have millions and you don’t have to work anymore????

  24. First order will be made by John and the second would be Ed LOL. I wonder how much it really costs…from the looks of it, I’d say about 30 to 40 MIL, no?

  25. Wow.. this is really sweet.. talk about luxury. The only thing missing is a pic with John sitting in there.. only a matter of time eh John?

  26. Steve Yu says:

    if only you are a billionaire…. 😀

    1. it’s free to dream anyway… oh well. we should make money online too. haha

  27. Jack says:

    Only 1 car? Logic dictates that if you have that kind of money, you can afford more than 1 lowly car, why not have a collection?

  28. Shaun Carter says:

    So what’s the price tag on this thing?

  29. It sure isn’t Laura Ashley. The only visitor we have in Italy who flies his own 747 and car is John Travolta, whose work would not seem to have been of the type to get him a private jumbo, but maybe he’s the one to have this plane?

    1. That makes sense…yeah, when he’s not working on-screen Travolta is in his very dashing pilot uniform flying off to God-knows-where. I’m sure the “wild hog” could make a little room for his very own BMW 787 Dreamliner.

  30. What a plane!, I could be happy maybe only being able to go inside :)

    1. I think I understand where you’re coming from; if I’m not mistaken, this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany is as good as done — any of you guys went? 😎

  31. Marino says:

    This is the perfect plane for me. Too bad I don’t have money to buy one. :)

    Great post.

  32. Eric says:

    Did anyone else notice that the right wing of the plane in the picture looks really small?


    1. the perspective is just wrong. no biggie. it is only a concept 3d model.

  33. Martina says:

    Wow, it’s wonderful!
    …but maybe i will not have money to buy a bmw car,too!!!!

  34. wow. great interior design. I love it.

  35. Holy Crap am I jealous!
