Is this supposed to be a GT car like the M6? It's hard to tell the dimensions from those pics. Minus the very-front-end, it remids me of an Aston.

It's so hard to tell from CG images but it kind of looks like a M6 and a M Coupé mated.

I also wonder, as vinuneuro does, where this car is supposed to fit in the BMW hierarchy.

Exactly. Coming in 2010/11. Power will come from V10 or V12 pumpimg 700+hp.
When the current Z4 is discontinued, it will be replaced by Z6 so there is more difference with Z2.

The new Z9 should be packed with engineering highlights, including some world firsts.Everything is 'active' in the provisional list of goodies, from active steering to active springs and dampers, and active roll compensation (not to be confused with Dynamic Drive, which uses switchable anti-roll bars). There's active g-force distribution on the rear suspension, active cruise control & stop (ACC), even adaptive air cooling and adaptive aerodynamics.

The retractable hardtop could have variochromatic glass which can transform from near-dark to near-translucent, just like in the Ferrari Superamerica. Also under consideration are a power-operated wind deflector and an advanced version of the ‘Airscarf’ neck warmer, pioneered by the Mercedes SLK.

Damn that sounds so nice. What can we expect for the starting price?

Oh boy, that ought to cost about $150,000. Seems like a waste to me for a car company that creates cars for the whole spectrum of buyer, but that is probably because I can't afford it. Leave the 6 figure mega-toys to Ferrari/Lambo/AM and those crazy MB folks. :)

Don't forget about the P-cars :thumbup:
