Final summer time, I drove the outgoing E89-generation BMW Z4 for every week and totally loved it. It’s a really flawed however very likable automobile, one that’s nonetheless able to placing smiles on faces. However, let’s face it, it’s time for the E89 Z4 to be put down. Out with the previous, in with the brand new. Taking its place would be the upcoming G29-gen BMW Z4 and it must be a greater automobile. It’s constructed on a brand new, higher chassis, has higher engines and will probably be considerably lighter, because of the brand new automobile ditching the heavy folding metallic roof for a extra conventional soft-top. So, naturally, we’re excited concerning the upcoming Z4. Some spy images have lately surfaced that give us one other glimpse on the latest Bavarian roadster and we get to see some production-ready headlights (we don’t personal the spy images, however they are often seen here).
When you is likely to be pondering, “Nico, why ought to we care about spy images that present us virtually the identical factor we’ve been seeing for a yr?”, I implore you to go and verify them out so you possibly can spot one thing attention-grabbing, because the headlights have seemingly modified from the opposite Z4 pre-production vehicles we’ve seen earlier than. Sometimes, BMW headlights have all the time featured some model of a two-circle, horizontal design. Lately, they’ve turn into extra angular however the thought stays. Nonetheless, this new BMW Z4 appears to have a barely completely different take, one from a really attention-grabbing idea.
Wanting on the headlights within the spy images, we are able to solely see the underside portion of them, as the highest continues to be lined in camouflage. In that backside portion, there is just one “circle” and never two. At first, you may suppose BMW might have ditched the two-circle design and simply gone with one. Till you take a look at the BMW Z4 Concept and notice that it has comparable headlights and the 2 “circles” are literally vertical and never horizontal. So the brand new BMW Z4 may have the identical kind headlights from the gorgeous Z4 Idea.
This can be a very encouraging signal, as the brand new BMW Z4 Idea is presumably the prettiest from the Bavarians in a really very long time. We are able to’t wait to see the brand new BMW Z4 Roadster uncovered and on the highway. We’re much more impatient to drive it.
