From the classic April 1968 Car & Driver 'Turn Your Hymnals to 2002' David E. Davis review/road test of the 2002:

...The Germans have a word for it. The German paper Auto Bild called the 2002 Flustern Bombe, which means "Whispering Bomb," and you should bear in mind that the German press speaks of bombs, whispering or otherwise, with unique authority. They, too, saw something American in the car's design concept, but only insofar as BMW has elected to stuff a larger, smoother engine into their smallest vehicle...

Think German equivalent of the the Road Runner concept and you'd be close. Best regards...
