BMW Z4 news - V10 rifle - 2009
Seems it’s a good day for wedging massive V10s into small vehicles.
OK, this isn’t quite as loony as that Viper-engined motorbike, but it’s gently unhinged nonetheless.
So that’s 550bhp in a roadster weighing just 1,450kg - a power-to-weight ratio of 379bhp per tonne, more than the Ferrari Scuderia.
Manhart says the mad Z4 will hit 62mph in 3.9 seconds and, thanks to a sneaky removal of the 155mph limiter, run close to 200mph.
