Sometimes inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources. Take MWDesign, for instance. For their latest project based on the BMW Z4 E89 hardtop-roadster with straight-six turbo, the Vancouver-based tuning shop drew their design inspiration from Nike's Slingshot golf clubs series.
The tuner started out by adding an AC Schnitzer front spoiler complete with custom carbon fiber lower splitters, 3D Design matte carbon fiber rear diffuser and boot lid spoiler, BMW Performance kidney grilles, a carbon fiber hood strip and a set of 20-inch Modular alloy wheels with glossy black outer rims.
MWDesign's next assignment was to apply lime green accents on the front air-ducts, the alloy wheels, the tail pipe surrounds and the twin roll bars. The custom carbon fiber exterior accents with primer grey on the hood, the trunk and the retractable hardtop along with the matte black tailpipes complete the visual makeover.
The Z4 Slingshot also benefits from numerous performance upgrades including -but not limited to- a power kit from Dinan, a sport exhaust system from Eisenmann USA and a new intercooler, all of which help boost output to 400-horsepower and 420 lb-ft of peak torque.
To improve handling, the Z4 was fitted 245/30 Toyo tires, Eibach Pro Sports Springs with reinforced shock mounts and bump stops, and H&R adjustable front and rear swaybars.
