BMW Z4 Concept Fully Leaked And It's Gorgeous

  • BMW Z4 Concept 830x553

BMW is working with Toyota to jointly develop the Z4's replacement and a Toyota sports coupe speculated to be a revived Toyota Supra. In the interior, we see a thoroughly BMW design, complete with the latest buzzword, "function islands", grouping all the controls into relevant sections.

Today's the big day - BMW will reveal its Z4 concept at the Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance, but you don't have to wait until the official premiere to see it.

Spotted numerous times testing, the next Z4 development has been carried out in cooperation with Toyota who will use the new architecture it created to underpin the next Supra.

RARELY does a concept auto run the gauntlet from show auto to production vehicle unscathed, and it's typical for numerous features that draw both crowds and praise to fall foul to compliance regulations and costing equations. The overall effect is one of lithe aggression and should suit the Z4 perfectly with a low shark-nosed front-end that rises in a wedge shape to the muscular rear haunches. From the top view, dome-shaped roll bars mimic the seat design and flow back into the body. "In the end, we settled on the retaining the Z4 name", a BMW source tells WardsAuto. Wide air intakes and BMW's signature kidney grille occupy the rest of the fascia, while 20-inch alloy wheels sit on all four corners.

Inside, the driver-focused cockpit is blacked out in contrast to the passenger-side's orange highlights, while the digital displays for the instrument cluster and multimedia system are parallel. "A shorter bonnet and crisp overhangs ensure the driver sits closer to the centre of the vehicle than in previous BMW roadsters", said van Hooydonk.

Power is likely to come from a wide range of BMW's existing four- and six-cylinder turbopetrol engines, driving the rear wheels of course.

With BMW presenting us the new concept Z4 it fiercely rebuttals all those claiming the company has become a luxury crossover company.

True to tradition, the three initial Z4 models retain the rear-wheel-drive layout that has been part of the two-seat roadster's appeal since its introduction in 2002. The front wheels hide large Z4-branded four-piston brake calipers and iron rotors.
