BMW Concept Z4 Unveiled at Pebble Beach

BMW Z4 Concept 830x554

Photos of the new BMW Z4 Concept have surfaced online ahead of the roadster's debut later today.

BMW has revealed the Concept Z4, a preview of the German firm's third-generation roadster, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California.

Rolled out ahead of the third-generation model's global launch next year, the Z4 show auto also provides the first official look at the ongoing sportscar collaboration between BMW and Toyota.

Apart from an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel-drive transmission, there should be 2.0-litre four- and 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol-turbo engines propelling the Z4 with an expected power range of some 200-340hp. The cockpit of the Z4 Concept is a place of objective and precision. Which would be interesting. Unlike traditional BMW headlights, the two halos on either side are stacked vertically, rather than horizontally, pushing them to the edge of the vehicle. The approach signals BMW's determination to shift the Z4 further upmarket.

We are told the Concept Z4 is a faithful preview of the upcoming production auto, which is slated to launch as a 2019 model by this time next year. The vehicle gives us a different take on BMW's evolutionary design, but features sharper, more dynamic and sculptured lines with a super-aggressive front end.

The Z4's look is all sports vehicle.

The new Z4 is made from a mix of high-strength steel, aluminium and magnesium, which helps make it lighter than its predecessor despite the increase in size.

See, after BMW said that really disgusting thing in 2014, it made me wonder how it could still possibly push the whole "the ultimate driving machine" motto with a straight face.

The Z4 Concept's dashboard appears to herald a new design direction for BMW. Boot capacity is also claimed to top the 310 litres of the outgoing Z4. Our recommended Sport trim gets you sports seats and bespoke alloy wheels - and the 220d engine we recommend is punchy yet reasonably economical. The dashpod is an all-digital affair while the main central monitor butts up to the dashpod allowing a flow of information from the main monitor to the instrument cluster with the driver able to choose what information is displayed.
