The car world may be going all-wheel drive, but BMW still has rear-wheel drive ambitions: welcome, then, the BMW Concept Z4.
It’s a chance to bring the sporty convertible bang up to date with BMW‘s current design language.
The familial resemblance with the second-generation Z4 is clear.
Up front, the shark nose fascia is even more aggressive, with the oversized kidney grille lower and broader than before.
BMW says it wanted to trigger associations with the Z8 and give the Z4 Concept “a certain flamboyance.” It’s not the only heritage touch, mind: the mesh that fills those kidneys is a nod to the BMW 328 Mille Miglia classic.
The turn signals have been integrated, pointing into the grilles diagonally, while their shape and angles are echoed in the gill-vents on the clamshell hood.
