The famous 'M' division of BMW has worked over the Z4 Coupé
due mid 2006. The original convertible Z4 was a great looking little roadster, and
fortunately the coupe version has retained similar appeal.
The design itself is a development of the controversial 'Flame
surfacing' design style first seen on the BMW
X Coupe concept from 2001, albeit much more refined.
Powered by a 3.2-litre straight-six M power unit developing
343 horsepower (252 kW) and 269 lb ft (365 Nm) of torque, as
used in the BMW M3, the Z4 M Coupe hits 60 mph in just 5 seconds, going
on to a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). To halt
the proceedings, The Z4 M Coupe is stopped by brakes taken from
the M3 CSL.
As far as handling is concerned, the BMW Z4 M Coupe has a chassis
with almost double the torsional rigidity of the previous Z3
M Coupe, which no doubt helped it in posting faster lap times
than the Z4 M Roadster and the BMW M3 on the Nurburgring.
The Z4 M Coupe has entered a market with some pretty stiff competition,
the Porsche Cayman S being one of the best sport
coupes on the market. However the Z4 M Coupe, despite being
79 kg (176 lbs) heavier, develops almost 50 horsepower more,
resulting in a higher power to weight ratio, and gets to 60
mph 0.2 seconds faster.
