Car Brief: 2007 BMW Z4 Coupe
BMW gets its funk (back) on
2007 BMW Z4 Coupe
From a design perspective, the Coupe looks much like the recently-introduced and updated 2006 BMW Z4 Roadster, a model accented by revised fog lights and air inlets and a tail marked by reworked taillights and a sharper body line. However, the coupe adds an arched hatch that incorporates a subtle spoiler, and provides access to a small cargo area. Housed under the hood is a 255-horsepower 3.0-liter engine that will push the BMW Z4 Coupe to 62 mph in less than six seconds. Bolted into M versions will be a 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine pushing 343 horsepower. Features found on the Z4 Coupe concept car, which won’t necessarily make it to production, include aluminum pedals, an interior swathed in high-quality leather, matching luggage, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Pricing hasn’t been released yet, but chances are the BMW Z4 Coupe, especially the M model, won’t be cheap – performance cloaked in individuality seldom is.
