Complex says: The 2002 BMW 7-Series was one of the most polarizing cars ever made by BMW. Newly appointed design chief Chris Bangle crafted the car as a look towards BMW's future design language. BMW faithfuls made fun of the "Bangle Butt" (the two-level trunk design) and the odd mixture of curves and angles. Eventually, though, the design became a hit, making other car brands rethink the design of their executive sedans.
