I have to get used to the 09 rules wider frontspoiler and smaller/narrower rearspoiler:What did it say on the back? BMW POW(no more space left lol)

Sounds almost as great as our mighty 4.0V8 though I've been told that that 2.4 F1 V8 has even less torque.

(don't answer this question, I already know and just kidding)

Thanks for the post (I think most F1 fans are aghast at the new design).
I hope BMW-Sauber can win the constructor's championship this year as they have put all their effort to do so...

I hope that they are title contenders this year. They were last year until midseason when they stopped developement on the 08 car and started on the 09. Hope that gives them an advantage this year with all of the testing and developement.

Hi guys,

BMW is one the best cars of the world. After many pictures, posts, videos and information, we will finally see the 2009 BMW Z4 in its true form. This will happen between 17 and 25 of January. Some people might be interested in seeing the new 7 and 3 Series vehicles. Thanks

sorry if I came off wrong, I was implying that F1 fans knew about the new ugly shapes enforced by F1 which is what I thought you were showing.

lulz, didn't mean to come off like a jackass...thanks for the info...

Great Vid!!! I am a huge F1 fanatic and I can't wait for the season to start. I really hope BMW can close the gap more to the front runners and challenge for the title.

Looks pretty good, but I think the F60 will dominate in 2009.

Really? Even with Massa still having problems with his car, Ferrari returning to the problematic electronic pit timing, and Ferrari not having KERS fully working? I'd like to hear why you think they will dominate?

2009 rules make these cars look horrible... they look like GP2 cars... The rear wing actually made me laugh out loud. As long as it makes the racing better I guess it's OK, but I'm not sure F1 is going in the right direction.

In an attempt to keep F1 dynamic with the times, it has gone downhill as you are suggesting.
