While we were ogling at dragons on popular TV shows, the people at BMW built their own beast. The Z4 Roadster concept, launched only yesterday at BMW’s annual Monterey Car Week, features a sharper and more dynamic aesthetic, with practically perfect bilateral symmetry on the outside from front to back. The car’s design explores a relatively slimmer dual kidney grill on the front, but makes up for it with massive air intakes on the lower bumper. The headlights are designed to be extremely streamlined (giving it the aggressive demeanor), and taillights, even more so. Pair this with the car’s sculpted design and wedge-shaped silhouette, it truly looks like a crouching beast, ready to pounce!
While the outside celebrates sheer symmetry, the inside reflects another story, with the seats being colored differently. The driver gets a black leather seat, while the passenger traveling shotgun has a seat coated with brown leather. Even the dashboard is divided based on this color scheme. Personally, I think it’s kitschy, fun, and gives one something to talk about.
The Z4 debuted yesterday still remains within the concept domain, although BMW indicates a production model reveal early next year, hopefully at the Geneva Motor Show next year!
