2007 BMW Z4 M Roadster Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Review
This is actually a review I filmed around the turn of last year, but never
uploaded. Guess its better late than never.
In this review, we get an up close and personal encounter with the 2007 BMW
Z4 M Roadster, in Black Sapphire Metallic, accented with the Light Sepang
Bronze Extended leather interior. This vehicle was kindly provided to me,
courtesy of our good friends at DFW Audi in Euless, TX (www.dfwaudi.com)
for me to review. This review is designed to provide accurate vehicle
information to both enthusiasts and potential consumers alike.
2011 BMW Z4 GT3
Modified BMW Z4 GT3 completes successful test programme
Munich, 8th April 2011. The modified BMW Z4 GT3 has survived its baptism of
fire: the GT customer sports car proved itself in a series of intensive
tests in recent weeks. The goal of the latest modifications was primarily
to improve aerodynamic efficiency in order to ensure the car's
competitiveness in the many, hard-fought GT3 classes.
The BMW Z4 GT3, which was launched in March 2010, achieved its greatest
success to date in January 2011. Claudia Hürtgen (DE), BMW works driver
Augusto Farfus (BR), Tommy Milner (US) and Edward Sandström (SE) won the
Dubai 24 Hours for Team Schubert. This was the first outright victory for
the BMW Z4 GT3 at a marathon race of this scale, having already proven its
potential with wins in its debut season in the FIA GT3 European
With its elongated bonnet, the driver's compartment towards the rear of the
car, long wheel base and narrow wheel arches, the series version of the BMW
Z4 boasts an unmistakable appearance. The two-seater provided BMW
Motorsport engineers with a good basis for developing a competitive GT3
A difference between the production and racing car can be found under the
bonnet: while the production version of the BMW Z4 is driven by a
six-cylinder engine, the GT3 car is powered by a 4.4-litre eight-cylinder
BMW Motorsport engineers have also fine-tuned the aerodynamics of the BMW
Z4 GT3 for the new season, improving the car's performance in this area.
When it comes to electronics, the private teams can look forward to
innovative BMW solutions: The modern ECU408 takes over the engine
management, while the Power400 electronic control unit is responsible for
controlling all the actuators. The power is transmitted through a
six-speed, sequential gearbox. Gearshifts are now initiated using two
The steel body of the car comes from BMW Plant Regensburg. A safety cell
made of extremely rigid, precision steel tubing is then welded into the
body. The engine block of the V8 engine is produced in the BMW foundry in
Landshut. BMW Plant Dingolfing contributes the rear axle differential,
among other things. Front and rear wings, bonnet, roof, fenders and many
other components are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP).

The BMW Z4 looks amazing, and the cabin oozes class. It's great to drive,
with strong engines, capable handling and a supple ride.
There isn't much space in the boot when you've got the roof down, and an
Audi TT is more fun to drive
