Do you remember the BMW Z3 Coupé, a strange car that has earned the nickname “clown shoe” for its body shape?
It is a coupe or perhaps better said a three-door sedan, which was born on the basis of the Z3 roadster. It was produced between 1998 and 2002, and after the end of production, the Bavarian car manufacturer did not invent a car with a similar style. Although the successor in the form of the Z4 existed as a coupe, it had decidedly sporty forms.
The current Z4 generation is now available exclusively as a roadster, with a canvas roof. Apparently, BMW is not planning another version.
Digital artist Sugar Chow however, it comes with an idea of what a fixed body version might look like. And he took as inspiration the legendary “shoe”, or the Z3 Coupé.
His vision is obviously based on the shape of a roadster, the top and rear of the car are different. Bavorák got a new roof, the line of which is extended a lot in the rear, there are also new side windows and of course a significantly revised rear. The designer also thought of the iconic Hofmeister curve and equipped the rear pillars with BMW logos.
Of course, the new rear sections would greatly increase the practicality of the two-seater.
So what do you say? Would you like BMW to revive the clown shoe on the current Z4 generation? And perhaps in this form?
