New BMW Concept Z4 Unveiled at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

by TrackWorthy,

BMW is using the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to present its new take on the BMW Z4 roadster. Many hope that this car is close to resembling the production version that will debut in 2018.

“The BMW Concept Z4 in an all-out driving machine,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design. “Stripping the car back to the bare essentials allows the driver to experience all the ingredients of motoring pleasure with supreme directness. This is total freedom on four wheels. The BMW Concept Z4 expresses the new BMW design language from all perspectives and in all details. From the dynamic-looking front to the striking flanks to the clean-cut tail end: a few lines and the subtle interplay between surfaces are enough to generate a sense of power and emotion.”
