Rumor: Bmw ‘Z’ Spyder Stradale in the works

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

BMW "Z" Spyder Stradale -- the name it's not new to fans of the Bavarian company as the car was originally put forward back in 2005 when Norbert Reithofer took the reigns of the BMW Group. The car meant to be a highly emotive dream project but it appears that it was killed by the financial crisis.

The so-called Spyder Stradale promises to be a successor to the Z8 and will feature an aluminum structure, an animalistic front end with signature indicators as well as state-of-the-art technology and EfficientDynamics will be one of them. 

This means that the car will feature stop-start technology, brake energy regeneration and will be capable to offer an impressive fuel consumption, for a sports car.

Another interesting feature of the car will be the so-called active aerodynamics, which means that a movable front spoiler will be able to move in direction of airflow. The rear of the vehicle will gave a pop-up aerodynamic aid in order to obtain extra downforce for improve stability.

The technology from this car will be borrowed from 5-, 6- and 7-Series. A concept version of the car is expected to debut this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show but a production version of the car would not arrive until 2014!
