Spy Shot: BMW Z4 M Coupe

The Z4 Coupe, which was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, may have been officially billed as a concept, but here's proof that BMW is going to put the car into production. Not only that, there's firm evidence that BMW will also build an M-performance version.

What makes us so sure this Z4 coupe we caught out testing is not just any Z4? Well, for starters, check out those wheels - they're definitely not standard rep-mobile BMW issue. They are far more like the wheels that adorn the latest BMW M3.

Have a look through those wheels, too. Gleaming behind the elegant spokes are some pretty sizable brakes. With discs that big, it's clear that this is a car that'll take a lot of stopping, so it must have a lot of go.

Quite what that 'go' will be we can't yet be sure. Under the bonnet of the show car was a 265bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, but American magazine Autoweek says that the M-coupe will use the 3.2-litre engine from the M3, uprated from 343 to 360bhp.

In the end, though, what really makes us sure that the car in our shots is an M-coupe are the front and back ends. At the front, the air dam is filled with a sporting honeycomb mesh and its pronounced lip is even more aggressive than the showcar's.

Likewise, at the back, where the existing Z4 roadster has just one pair of tailpipes (as does the Z4 coupe showcar), the coupe we spied has a pair of distinctly sporty twin exhaust pipes, just like an M3 and M5.



mmmmm new M Coupe :drool: gimme gimme gimme

(even though it doesn't appear to have the rear-on stance the old one did)
AGHHH; I'm beginning to like some BMWs. This coupe isn't even that spoiled by those rear lights.
yay!... the current M3 6-cyl engine will still be around :D... now M coupe>>>>> E90 M3 because of Straight-6 engine :D
Looks good in black :D Based on the awesome grip the normal Z4 has, this should be a cracker. I know nobody will care but I wonder wht kinda boot this thing has got :unsure: It better be bigger than a 350Z for example...
Hmm nice nice nice. Just to get the hoppy bpys hopping more, can anyone say 'Z4 Coupe M CSL'?
looks strange to me ..

Yeah, I like the idea, like it from some angles, but other angles make it resemble a Porsche, with that hip.

After the 6, here comes the Z4C... :mrgreen:
M coupe, now we're talking. :thumbsup: I like that this one is actually a coupe and rather than wanna hatchback like the last one.
Once again, you need a leather-lined member's only jacket and matching loafers...
^ May I recommend http://tinyurl.com/ - makes those loooong url's nice and forum-friendly :)

Nice find on the vid btw.

Looks to have a huge boot (not what you look for in a sports car sure, but nice to have) - and the way the hatch shutline wraps around the rear side glass is terrific. Oh yes, I want one, now.
