The Z4 Concept at the BMW stall in Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 has all eyes glued to it owing to its stunning design element and matte copper paint scheme. The car gets short rear deck, long hood, compact size and short overhangs. Moreover, the Z4 Concept also featured massive air intakes and nostrils that connect it to the sports car family.
BMW claims that the design elements for the Z4 Concept is inspired by older cars, such as the original Mille Miglia-winning roadster, the BMW 328. The all rear-wheel-drive BMWs, the Z4 is underpinned by the CLAR architecture which offers a lightweight platform. As for the interior, the concept featured a futuristic three-spoke steering wheel and large red paddle shifters.
The production Z4 is believed to be a joint project between BMW and Toyota. The platform will also underpin a Toyota sports car that’s expected to be the long-awaited successor to the Supra. Moreover, it is believed that the BMW and Toyota partnership will also put together a coupe version for the Japanese brand, and unveil it later this year. The cars share BMW’s engines and will be built at a neutral site, the Magna factory in Graz, Austria.
