Anabolicar Magazine is one of Germany’s biggest supercar magazines so obviously, they had to have a presence at the just finished 2011 Essen Motor Show. What we didn’t know was that they were bringing a humdinger of a project in the form of a tuned-up BMW Z4.

The show car, which was built specifically for the purpose of displaying it at Essen, comes with plenty of aerodynamic and performance enhancements that compliments the M Package the car already has. The exterior of the Z4 is highlighted by a Green reptile skin finish that was worked on by KK-Cocoon. In addition to that, the Z4 Anabolicar also has a new KW coil-over suspension, an Eisenmann exhaust system, a lowered M-chassis, and a new set of black, 19" OZ Racing alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the modifications for the interior include new M sports seats, a new M steering wheel, and a voice activated navigation system.

Under the hood of the Z4 Anabolicar lies a 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder engine that produces 265 horsepower. All that juice wrapped up in a fancy aesthetic dress results in a sports car that stole the show at the 2011 Essen Motor Show. Then again, we really shouldn’t have expected anything less from one of Germany’s biggest supercar magazines.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Yeah! I do agree with you guys! This car is stunning on its looks and the wheels are compliment with it. What do you think is final cost of this green beautiful vehicle?

I really am not into cars with much design, stickers and writings on it. I think the color green and the lining of black on its hood is cool enough if it stays simple.

It looks cool and awesome on its style! However, I don’t believe that its 265 horsepower is already enough for this race car instead I find it weak on that. I think BMW should boost it more.

Yeah! I hope also that they would reveal a video on it about on its performance enhancements! Moreover, I have to agree that it really looks so cool and attractive on its aesthetic design.

I can’t wait to see the new steering wheel of it even its voice-activated navigation system. It’s so interesting on that. However, I have to agree that for a sport vehicle, its engine output is not really satisfying.

Inline-six engine? I don’t think that it will be good enough for this race car. However, I have to agree that it really has a noticeable appearance, and the body paint is absolutely perfect on it.

The color combination of this Z4 is so precise and appropriate for this vehicle. However, I noticed that it only had a weak engine output which is too disappointing for this race car.
