There are more pictures and video on the Google and on YouTube.

It is heavily camouflaged and looking back at the original E89 camouflage when that was being tested didn't really hint at anything apart from the size of the car.

This is the same although we should expect it to slowly and partly unveiled as has happened previously.

From all these pictures I don't like it one bit. Hopefully like Skelters said it is heavily panelled out to disguise it somewhat. If not and having no 6cyl just a wheezy 4 potter :fuelfire: It's a big no from me.

Thanks sars, I can't decide if it's a step forwards, back or sideways with the Toyota hook-up, is it really a Z4 replacement, a Z5 or something else? I guess we have to wait and see how it turns out in the metal 8)

Other sites talk of 3, 4 and 6 cylinder engines - I doubt any news site really knows.
That's very rare a soft top getting cut into. I remember reading not a single person on this forum has ever heard of it happening.
z4 coúpe gone. C30 r design arrived.

Sounds like the 'false noise' that the latest 3-series have. Also that gear change seems to suggest a DCT/SMG automated manual.
