It looks like it is partially melted. Hideous looking thing

I hope this is not a sign of things to come from the new design director.

It's just a larger z4....but with a hideous rear end. Although I have to admit the rest of the car and the paint is absolutely stunning. Back is very CRX-IE's and Z's all over the grill was a bit much. Had they left it like the typical BMW mesh grill it woulda been great.

And it seems no one was listening lol...it's a one off for the special coach show. Great marketing behind it, btw

+1. They need to sort out the rear if before it's signed off for production. I will buy one if it's an M.

Agreed! I like the overall car but could like it more with a bit of refinement to the rearend.

I think it helps that I really like the current z4 and have been waiting for a z4M coupe to come along...this could fill the bill.

I'd take one, I think it looks 90% amazing, not too sure on the rear end...

Did I miss something, whats under the hood? I didn't watch the video...maybe it's in there?

No one in their right mind has ever called the new Z4 unpopular because of its looks. In fact by all accounts and all reviews it is a great looking roadster. It is the driving experience that is numb thus leaving it unpopular.

Overall, this project looks cool. But I agree they could have made it a bit more exotic.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

I agree that it looks 90% good.

But the weird thing I noticed, is that there doesn't seem to be a way to open the rear hatch (it looks like it's one piece of sheet metal with the quarter panels.)

Side vent looks like the shit you'd by from autozone and slap it on. Rear looks like a they cut the back half of a CR-Z and the front is not looking it's part. Zagato should just stick with Aston because they butchered this. What a waste..

Eh. If they admitted it was supposed to be a completely different car then I'd be on your side but they specifically stated it was based off the E89 Z4 (and some may even consider it a Z4 coupe?). Same size, same number of seats, same interior, same long hood and similar lines, hints of E89 Z4, etc... but likely with a bigger engine. It might just be the Z4 M Coupe everyone has been asking for?

At the end, it's all personal preference. The E89 Z4 has been softened up to be more comfortable, if this drive better and made for a driving enthusiast that cna go faster, then I can't be mad about that unless of course they make the price unreasonable.
