Mz4... 400hp V8?

So the MZ4 is confirmed in the Roundel I got today.

Says it will use the same V8 that is in the upcoming M3...


I wonder what they will do to slow it down so its not faster than the M3.

Mein Auto: a BMW killer
IMO if BMW does eventually build a 400hp roadster it won't be an E85 chassis


not that the Roundel has ever printed bogus MZ4 info before or anything ...

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, but today is a gift; that's why it's called the present

Like I said on Roadfly - "until the car is at the dealer's lot" (m)

So if there was to be a MZ4, time to trade in and trade up. But I still do not plan to hold my breath, sort of that low cost carbon fiber hood (non-TCK).
If it did happen, I would have to change my name, my license tag, my website, etc.
Who knows, we will see...some day...
