2018 BMW Z5 Concept, Redesign, Specs, Release Date And Price
The partnership between BMW and Toyota will give a positive result for the coming of 2018 BMW Z5. Rumors mentioned that this partnership was started in January 2013 and it will be related to the revival of Toyota Supra as well as Z4. Based on recent reports, the Z4 will be replaced and called as Z5 for the next future. It was about two years that the company gave no confirmation about all the speculations but we glad that the first public appearance of the camouflaged prototype for Z5 has been made and this coaster was caught by paparazzi during the cold weather testing performance.
2018 BMW Z5 Exterior
2018 BMW Z5 is still difficult to predict for its design features because of the heavy camouflage. This roadster will be the replacement for Z4. It comes with long hood, short rear deck, low driving position as well as short overhangs. What we can see is that the car is a bit longer and wider than the previous Z4. The big difference is that there will be a soft top to use instead of folding metal roof. The larger twin-kidney grille will be located lower in fascia with the lowered nose and the bigger grille to give a more aggressive look. The larger headlamps can be connected to the grille’s chrome frame. The well-camouflaged look is also around the front bumper and likely there will be 3-piece outlet configuration with the wider center opening. What is more is that the stance is less muscular and the flatter design will be presented for both the front and rear fenders.
2018 BMW Z5 Interior
The interior shot shows us a rocking interior design with a nice combination of old and new. 2018 BMW Z5 has sports and instrument cluster as well as floating infotainment display more likely the 2016 BMW3 Series and it seems that the floating display will be paired with HVAC vents as well as audio controls. The front fascia could be a decoy and the steering wheel is completed with a large center hub which is a bit similar to the older Ford and GM cars.
2018 BMW Z5 Engine
2018 BMW Z5 for the engine is still unknown but for the base, it might come with turbocharged and four-cylinder. The same unit will be used but with higher output to complete the higher trim. There is also 3.0-liter inline six for the high top variant. The high-performance model will be developed too. There is a strong suggestion that the company needs hybrid to complete the lineup. It sounds quite interesting when we hear that the new architecture will be co-developed with Toyota and each platform will be different for each model. About the transmission, it can be both manual and dual-clutch auto gearbox and the all-wheel drive will be the optional
2018 BMW Z5 Release Date and Price
Although it is still under the development with heavy camouflage, interior spy shots, and engine testing performance, we think the 2018 BMW Z5 is close to its release. It can be started after 2017. The price can be about $55,000.
