The teaser images of BMW Z4 replacement have gathered curiosity among many fans. We have got ourselves a few spy images of the all new BMW Z5. The images were captured at Nürburgring in Germany. If one remember. The BMW Z4 had metallic roof whereas the new BMW Z5 roof is made from fabric. This material not only lessens the weight but also decreases complexity. The BMW Z5 will be completely different from its predecessor and it would be much more luxurious.
We cannot talk about the exterior as it is heavily camouflaged sans the headlight and taillight. The interior of BMW Z5 is also not known because of the same reason. Few of the images of the interior reveal that some of the characteristics are from the Z4. BMW developed the Z5 with the collaboration with Toyota. However, both of them would be for different market. BMW and Toyota haven’t said anything regarding the BMW Z5 even after few spy images surfaced online. The Z5 would be launched as a roadster.
It is expected that the BMW Z5 will get four and six cylinder turbocharged engine. A hybrid powertrain is also in the pipeline. The hybrid engine will be sourced from Toyota. It would be paired with the xDrive AWD. The Z5 will make its debut in the year 2017 and would hit the production in 2018. It will be built at Magna Steyr in Austria. A coupe version might also join the lineup. We could expect more spied images in coming days. By then BMW and Toyota might remove the camouflage.
