Seems that BMW showed again a gorgeous prototype to the world, only to disappoint with the production version later.

Not a classic beauty in the makes.

The front grills look like teeth with those points. Like Jaws from the old James Bond movies.

I'm sure the rear looks weird because of the weird angle. It'll look much better in a different color from better pics.

I liked BMW design nomenclature when it was edgy without having 40 different angles/edges on every square foot of the car. I can only assume that this is a direct result of BMW hiring employees away from the Asian companies going back to the mass exodus of German employees starting in '03-04. The brand has not been the same since then and their focus has turned away from their core values in lieu of selling more volume. Now every new BMW design looks more and more like a Lexus/Infiniti product. At least ///M cars are still real BMW's...for now anyways.

The show car was marvelous, this thing would make a splash in a horror movie.

Not as aggressive as the concept, but it looks good.
It needs black kidneys, for an overall better front-end.

Such a disappointment. The concept was stunning. The Z4 will be just as ugly.

I love it! The front is a little predictable but the back is absolutely stunning. Finally, Bmw is realizing their aggressive potential. Depending on the pricing, I would buy
