The Z9 is meant to replace the now extinct Z8 which was nothing special. Now this, truly looks the part as BMW's flagship supercar to take on the big guns. It will be made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) to save weight which will make the Z9 very light and very strong. It will be an accumulation of BMW's technological and engineering feats with the platform based on the 5, 6 and 7 series. Touchscreen on the interior will be standard and the dash will be cutting edge unlike the retro-inspired Z8. Overall, I think the Z9 looks gorgeous..
Under the hood will lie a new 4.4l twin-turbo sourced from the next M5 and it will develop a heart-pounding 600hp! And of course, it will be equipped with a dual clutch gearbox which will send the power to the rear wheels through a torque vectoring M limited slip differential. Irritatingly, a stop-start will be standard with this car, just like Porsche's Panamera. But it will have brake energy regeneration which I guess would have come from BMW's history in F1. And thats a good thing.
An electric version will be on the way as well to rival Audi's e-tron and Merc's electric SLS. Imagine having a drag race with all 3 electric cars, it will be the most deafening silence ever from 3 supercars. And thats the sad fate we all have to face if we want to save our dying Earth..
