• 2011 BMW Z4 for North America by 3D Design

Japan has had more than its fair share of natural disasters over the years, with scientists predicting that a "big" quake was bound to hit some time soon. That being said, no one could predict the massive 8.9 magnitude quake followed by the tsunami that recently struck the country. The footage was a sight that was horrifying to watch, but even more so to live through. Japanese companies are still struggling to regain their balance, but 3D Design is out to prove that the country will not just sit back and allow negative things to happen to them. They are out to make positive things happen for themselves. This realization is what made 3D Design, along with a number of Japanese and US tuning firms, create the BMW Z4 tuning package that illustrates that hope and determination.

The BMW Z4 by 3D Design by a number of players who contributed the many different elements of the vehicle. The overall design theme was worked on by WSTO and IND with 18" wheels from BBS inspired by the BMW’s M3 GT4 program and wrapped around Yokohama tires, size 235/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear. The exterior of the vehicle is transformed by 3D Design’s own aggressive, full carbon fiber aerodynamic package.

The inner workings of the vehicle were also changed with an upgraded turbo kit from ESS, a KW variant suspension system, and a handbuilt exhaust system from Eisenmann. Other features include a Dinan camber plate, an upgraded brake package from Brembo, and a gauge package from Stack.

The most inspirational aspect of the vehicle is emblazoned on the passenger side of the BMW Z4: "Don’t give up, Tohoku." I think it is clear that no one is giving up. In fact, they will end up being stronger than ever.

It looks so sophisticated but the design is not impressive, and I don’t like the front it is too long. I bet that this is only a two-seater car which is not suits for the image of this car, but I must give some compliment with the wheels.

Nice car! BMW Z4 seems the much-awaited vehicle of BMW, and I would really agree on that. It truly looks cool and very glamorous on that aesthetic design. However, I wonder if what’s the figure performance of it?

3D design really did a great work on this BMW Z4, and it looks cooler on that! However, I’m a little curious if they also upgrade the engine of this one? Well, I hope that they truly did, so that it will be more impressive.

Well, it seems that they have used the M3 version as the basis for this production vehicle. And it seems that it was built to give hope for the affected region in Japan for the tsunami victim.

This car is not that elegant compare to the M series. Its platform is more of similar with the Porsche vehicle. However, I bet it has a superb speed performance since it passed the strict regulation of US market.

Well, I am not surprised that they are actually bringing this to the States. After all, a lot of Americans were probably impressed with this that they clamored for their own version.

I was hoping that they have include an upgrade on the engine performance! However, the modified version in the exterior is quite impressive!

Well, it seems that they haven’t include any engine upgrade the tuning package. However,I have to say that I’m impressed with the speed performance of this car! I really want to see hit the road of US!

I wonder how many units they would bring into the States for this baby. From what I have heard, they usually limit this to less than a thousand units, so it would definitely be a must have.

Actually, I think they will be offering the black color as an option for this one. But I am really looking forward to the features that they will be having under the hood.

This one actually looks somewhat a bit tamer compared to the first version. But this might be due to the fact that it is colored white instead of black, though it still looks very cool.

Its been a long time since I last seen this lovely BMW Z4. For me, this car totally amazed me by its designs and rock.

I think that bringing 3D Design’s Z4 package into the US is really a smart move. From the moment that I saw their work on the car, I already knew that this one would be a big hit here.

Wow, so that’s a good news! And I think this is just a proof on how powerful and impressive is this car for Americans want them!

hmm. The aftermarket version of the Kelleners Motorsport for this model is quite impressive! And I think with the awesome performance of this car no wonder why it reached the North America!

Wow, so they’re bringing in the Z4 to America. Well, that one is indeed a good news. I would say that I was really awed with the work that they did on that one, which is probably one of the best that I have seen.
