We could pretend that BMW dressed the Z8 successor as a Caterpillar D9, and some less-intelligent perusers of the blog might believe us. Bryant From Alberta, Canada and the Guy Apparently Named Zach come to mind. But the truth of the matter is slightly more prosaic. Still, we're thinking back to Operation Fortitude from the Second War, during which a young Bill Blass was employed sewing up inflatable faux-tanks to confuse the Germans into thinking that George Patton was readying his men to invade Calais.
