BMW Z4 Out of Production!


One of the most loved BMW car, the Z4 roadster came out of production last week after a career of 7 years. Even if a car is strictly full of “passion”, with only 2 seats managed to find approximately 200,000 customers in the 7 years of production.
Z4 was a special vehicle in the BMW range because it came with that new style, surprise prepared by Chris Bangle, but unlike the 7 Series or 5 Series, Z4 even was liked by many, since the launch. Two seats, driving position, the sport platform, the engine – perfect recipe for a roadster.
BMW Z4 has been produced in these years at BMW plant in Spartanburg (North Carolina, USA), but the next model will be produced in Germany. Anyway, we will not expect much the Z4’s replace because there are already rumors according to which the car will start at the Auto Salon in Los Angeles in the fall. It is possible that the car will be presented in the form of concept, but some BMW concepts are very close of the design of the series.

Dodge Viper- Record on Nurburgring

Americans have decided that after Corvette ZR1 recorded best time on the famous Nurburgring, after Nissan GT-R, the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR should be put on this circuit in Europe.
The journalists from Motortrend argue that, on august 18, the pilot Tom Coronel has come more tours on the Nurburgring. On the fourth ballot, the pilot established a time of only 7 minutes and 22.10 seconds, considerably better than the 7 minutes and 26.4 seconds set by Corvette ZR1.
It’s true that, while the ZR1 is a street car, the Viper SRT ACR 10 is basically a circuit car, but which is homologated for traffic on public roads. SRT10 ACR has the same huge V10 engine of 8.4 liters and SRT10, maximum power is 600 HP. ACR version is more comfortable but has better suspensions, brakes and clutch race. The model that was on the Nurburgring was a “series model”, if one can say so in circumstances in which SRT10 ACR is a car developed for racing.
