    Beautiful interior but there's something not right about the body proportions around the rear quarter panel and the trunk lid line.

    Agreed. I think continuing on with the E9 (3.0 series) was the right move.

    but I have to admit, I saw BMW blood lines in this car immediately.

    "Very interesting BMW show car recreated by custom coach builders in Milan..." Um... no, not exactly: it's a BMW show car originally created by custom coachbuilders in Milan and recently built by BMW Group Classic.
