The 2019 BMW Z4 was announced way back in 2015. Recently, leak patents of the much-anticipated car have circulated all over the wire hinting its design.
2019 BMW Z4 Patent and Features
According to Autocar India, the said leak photos shoe the 2019 BMW Z4’s swept-back headlights, smooth rear lights, and wide kidney grilles. The patent images showcase every angle of the car’s designing that’s remaining true to the 2017 concept.
It is also worth mentioning that the latest sighting showed the upcoming car wearing production-spec bodywork that’s covered by a light camouflage. Moreover, the Z4 sits on smaller-diameter wheels compared to previously spotted cars suggesting that the car is a lower-spec model. A previous video showed the car surrounding at pace, wearing winglets on its nose. This suggests that BMW was evaluating the car’s capability when under load.
When it comes to the mechanical department, the BMW Z4 will be powered by the company’s latest turbocharged petrol engines. The Z4 sDrive30i will obtain a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that creates about 251hp. Meanwhile, the more powerful variations will obtain a turbocharged of 3.0-litre six-cylinder unit shared with the M240i, that can produce about 355hp. Both of the engines will arrive featuring a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox and a standard rear-wheel drive.
In addition, BMW’s decision to arm the Z4 with the same rear axle similar to the M3 and M4 suggests that its hardware will be attuned with its 430hp, 3.0-litre straight-six or the M2’s 370hp, twin-turbo, turbocharged and 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine. The said motors obtain a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission driving the back wheels. This also specifies that the Z4 could have an M variant, which will acquire bespoke bodywork and a more concentrated chassis set-up.
