By far this is one of the coolest Z4 M-Coupe ever seen, a thoroughbred driving machine. Is true that at the moment is only a concept car, but I am sure when will go into production will be a success, even bigger than the BMW Z4 M Coupe.
But the fact that the limits of this extraordinary car are far from reached is evident from the concept vehicle even at first glance. Classic engine tuning hauls the power of the high-revving six-cylinder in-line plant to a robust 350 HP.
Not only is a special "active breathing" airbox used, but the engine control unit has been remapped. But power alone isn’t enough to get the maximum from an athletic heart.
So the modified rear axle ratio of 3.91:1 provides better sprint capacity, while the perfectly smooth transmission with the AC Schnitzer Short Shift ensures crisp changes by the driver.
And as you listen to the sonorous baritone note of the left/right sports exhaust system with the trapezoid tailpipes, you could be deceived into thinking there are no gear changes, just the playing of an instrument.
To achieve good deceleration values, development of a braking system was essential. On the front axle this takes the uncompromising form of an 8-pot fixed caliper with slotted and vented brake disks in (Ø 374 mm) and with 36 mm thickness.
