BMW Z5 test car spotted in Europe

BMW Z5 test car spotted in Europe

A test vehicle of the rumoured BMW Z5 has been spotted doing the rounds in Europe. It will be the successor to the current Z4. It is expected to share its underpinnings with the next-generation Scion FR-S that is being developed parallelly under an alliance between Toyota and BMW.  

Pictures reveal an evolutionary design of the current car. It has a forward leaning stance, large wheels and of course, the famous kidney grille. It will have a two-seater setup and full LED tail lamps.


The German automaker’s small sports car will be a soft top while the Scion FR-S/Toyota GT-86/Subaru BR-Z will be a hard top. They will be underpinned by a common scalable architecture and joint components. Our sources reveal that the Japanese side is expected to provide the electronics and hybrid tech while the German side will provide body construction and engines.

We can expect both cars to be launched in 2017 though it seems probable the Z5 will arrive before Toyota’s next generation compact sports car makes its debut.
