The engine will be the interesting bit for me - if the M gets the V8 I might have to get it - on looks alone though, I am not sold on the new one. The snout is a bit too 'snouty' and the roof is a bit too round. It looks like someone punched up a shark.

The old one was a bit of a throw back - which is what attracted me to it in the first place. It looks like the new one will be shedding that old-school charm, which IMO is a shame ... but who knows - with the camo they could have hidden Heidi Klum in there and it would still look a mess to me

Hard to tell with the camo, but the greenhouse looks too small for the body. Especially if you are looking in the general area where the small window behind the driver's window meets the body.

Interior spy pics.....

BMWís next-generation Z4 roadster is due to arrive next year as a 2010 model, and contrary to numerous reports the new model will grow in both size and price. Heavily camouflaged prototypes of the car have been spotted testing at the Nurburgring and now we get our first detailed look at the new modelís interior.

As revealed in these latest images, the new car will sport a similar cabin to the current car and will include a new multi-function steering wheel and convertible roof controller positioned below the gear-lever. The new Z4 is tipped to receive a folding metal hardtop to bring it into line with the Mercedes-Benz SLK and Mazda MX5/Miata. For BMW the benefits of the folding hardtop (security and reliability) outweighed the disadvantages of increased weight and less trunk space.

Although styling details are being kept closely guarded, the new car is expected to feature styling derived from the CS concept including a wider and more pronounced grille and larger intakes up front. A long hood and a short rear decklid remain but the previous carís circular taillights have been swapped with units that appear similar to those on the larger 6-series with rows of LED detailing.

The engine lineup should include both twin-turbo and naturally-aspirated straight six engines, although there could be an entry-level model in Europe with a four-cylinder mill, while the flagship M Roadster is likely to get a brand new high-performance turbo six with around 350hp. This is to ensure the M-spec Z4 doesnít step on the toes of the M3.

Nice Z4! But, with that price and a little bit more - I might as well get the M3 convertible.
