Rather over fussy and busy styling on that one. I doubt the production car will look that bad although I quite like the rear view. Trouble is, no folding hardtop ... I'm afraid I'm out! Have to keep saving for that DB11. ... 8)

A massive improvement over the E89. At least it has some visual drama back again.

I think this will be aimed squarely at the F-Type market not the previous Z4 sector, with pricing to match.

For selfish reasons let's hope they chicken out of an M version again.

Hah! I was thinking the same. If it's under 1400kg and a little scary to drive, that would annoy me. :P

Does look good, even if it's a bit fussy in concept form.

Looks great but I suspect it will be watered down considerably.

Looks about the same size as the i8 and cannot figure out how the roof fits.

Love the looks and would have one as soon as if it had a hard top but suspect it won't be :(

Will have to wait for the i8 roadster and a small win on the premium bonds or a new and more sympathetic wife

It was at the Nurburgring two weeks ago when I mistakenly entered through an open gate and found myself on the track?

I was quickly surrounded by big big men in black suits who after initially seeming hostile took me into the building and for the rest of the day we were shown the greatest hospitality. We were taken around the track in several of the cars they had on the track for testing and although they all had no badges on and bits of fiberglass stuck in odd places and were all the same colour as a zebra it wasn't hard to work out. The cars we were lets say frightened to death in was the new M8, M1 (concept), i8 and the new Z4/5 whatever they are going to name it. We were also invited to spend the next day at the BMW factory where my Z4 mysteriously disappeared for about four hours and came back looking like it probably did the day it left the factory? A good week all round.

That lower door crease is just overkill.
Reminds me of that Lykan Hypersport how the design overkill ruined it. However, it's probably the satin metallic paint (or vinyl) that makes it seem like that. If not then I'm sure they'll flatten it out a bit for production.

Same with the contrasting seats. This is a production car not a niche model, I doubt it's going to end up in production.

Either way, I'm going to buy it regardless :D .
