2014 BMW Z4 Pure Fusion Design

The BMW M3 and the M4 Coupe are understandably getting all the attention today, but BMW is quick to point out that those aren’t the only two models that it’s proudly showcasing.

A special-edition BMW Z4 is also getting some love ahead of its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show . The model is called the Pure Fusion Edition and while it lacks in any kind of noticeable exterior changes, it does showcase the company’s new Pure Fusion Design equipment package, which is all sorts of incredible if you’re the type to enjoy your luxury with plenty servings of sportiness to go with it.

That, essentially, is what BMW is trying to sell with the Z4 Pure Fusion Design. You get your sports car in full blast and add a special interior that has more leather than you’d expect.

Kudos to Bimmer for killing two birds with one stone. It’s cars like this that can really draw interest back to an aging model, like the Z4.

Exterior Detail

Not a whole lot of changes were made to the Z4’s exterior, other than the use of the Sparkling Brown metallic paint finish. Originally, we didn’t think too kindly to this hue on a sports car like the Z4, but we have since grown to appreciate it because you don’t always see a BMW, let alone a Z4, sporting this kind of color.

If Satin Brown metallic isn’t to your liking, then you can have a wide palette of colors that BMW is making available. You can also opt for M Sport package if you need an extra injection of sportiness.

Interior Detail

For the noticeable lack of inspiring upgrades on the exterior, the interior of the Pure Fusion Design received a whole lot of them, including a host of exclusive materials, posh trims and expressions of luxury.

A premium Nappa leather trim was used by BMW and complemented by specially designed sport seats, featuring an Ivory White color with brown stitching serving as a nice contrast to the pearliness of the seats. Even the armrests, door panels and the passenger pull handle all received a similar color treatment, emphasizing BMW’s mission of treating this interior like the work of art that it is.

Take a look at the window sills, the top of the dash, and the instrument cluster scoop, and you’ll notice that instead of the white surface, Bimmer went with black leather with brown lap-folded seams. Saddle Brown Nappa leather can also be seen as a horizontal trim line on the front, stretching from one side (the driver’s cockpit) to another (the passenger side).

Finally, black Nappa leather was used to cover the sun visors with the center console trim sporting Fineline wood.

The 2014 BMW Z4 looks every bit as nasty as it performs like a true sports car.

The exterior modifications to the new Z4 are almost non-existent, but there are a few, like the chrome surrounds around the turn signals, the more aggressive front lip and the black rear bumper insert. You’ll also notice three new colors in the selection palette: Mineral Grey metallic, Glacier Silver metallic and Valencia Orange metallic.

The 2014 Z4 will carry the same engines as the 2013 model, meaning the sDrive28i will feature a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter, the sDrive35i will get a 300-horsepower 3.0-liter and the sDrive35is will get a 3.0-liter tuned to 335 horsepower. The respective 0-to-60 mph times for these models are: 5.5 seconds, 5 seconds and 4.8 seconds.
