|GMP Performance Presents 2007
BMW Z4 M Coupe!
letter M has little significance on its own, but when you pair it with
the BMW brand you know you are in for stellar performance. The M line
of cars is well respected throughout the world for its excellent
performance and top-notch engineering. Despite this, there is always
room for improvement. The owner of this Z4M coupe wanted more. We
gladly brought this BMW M to the next level with an ESS supercharger
and a few other aftermarket treats.
supercharged power on the to do list, we went to ESS Tuning for a kit
to really boost this BMW to new levels. Utilizing a Vortech V3Si
supercharger along with a high-capacity front mount intercooler, cast
aluminum intake manifold and an ECU upgrade, it covers several of the
most important power-producing elements. All this combined and it
can bump the Z4 M up to 525 horsepower and 340 foot-pounds of torque,
impressive numbers for such a small, zippy car.
comfortable ride is a must no matter how much power is underneath the
hood but once you add a tracking element in, what you demand out of
your suspension changes. With a Bilstein PSS10 kit, this Z4 would be
covered for both, as the shocks in this kit are adjustable and offer
the options of comfort or competition.
customer didn't want to go much farther than BMW for this coupe's
outward appearance. He brought us BMW's own factory M3 CSL wheels to
mount and balance on a set of Michelin Super Sport tires. Teamed with
the new lower stance from the Bilstein coilovers, it really defines
this car: stunning yet unassuming...until it starts to move.
With competition in mind, the Z4 M was also
equipped with a strut brace, courtesy of Turner Motorsports. This will
be extremely helpful keeping traction when this car tackles even the
hardest of corners, be it at the track and even on the street.
Upgraded power in the
engine means upgraded power in the clutch. We chose a lightweight
clutch and flywheel combo from UUC that was specifically designed for
the Z4 M. Paired with a short shifter kit, also from UUC, these will
entirely revamp the way every shift feels in this beast.
interior got a little extra pizzazz as well. Previously wood trim
everywhere you looked, it was time for a more sleek and streamlined
appearance. The entire dash and center console were removed to be
wrapped in carbon fiber, proving once again, that even the smallest of
changes can make a big difference.
We wanted to be sure this incredible
coupe had one last thing: an awesome exhaust to fit the rest of the
car. With a race style exhaust system from Supersprint, it now has a
sound to match the excellence that radiates from bumper to bumper. Just
a little something special to listen to for everyone behind this BMW,
watching its tail lights disappear up the road ahead.
say you can never improve on an M. We say challenge accepted. In the
case of this BMW Z4 M Coupe, we think the challenge was a success.
Significantly faster, smoother ride quality, excellent handling and a
sound to draw a crowd, this car has it all and then some. At the track
or on the street, it's prepared for it all and will do it with flair as
it zooms by.
