The BMW E86 Z4 M Coupe was the last of the “Shoe” as it’s affectionately become known as. Even to this date, the BMW Z4 M Coupe is considered one of the most BMWs ever built, and one equally fun to drive. A fine example of the Z4 M Coupe was spotted in Zandvoort, Netherlands.

Making its Debut at the NY International Auto Show in April of 2006, the Z4-based M Coupe shares its underpinnings with the M Roadster, but employs a fixed hard-top roof which yields additional torsional rigidity. 24,000 lb-ft per degree of body twist as compared to 10,700 lb/ft per degree on the roadster.

Powered by a slightly detuned S54B32 from the E46 M3 (315HP vs 333HP), the Z4 M Coupe was capable of lighting fast sprints to 60 MPH but its strong suit was on a road course. The short wheelbase provided crisp handling and the inline 6 provided enough power to force the rear end to come around on command.

Acceleration to 60 mph (96 km/h) comes in 4.8 seconds. (0-62 mph / 100 km/h is 5.0) and top speed is limited electronically to 156 mph (251 km/h).

    Make it E86 instead. The E85 was the roadster.

    Huh ?!?
    Maybe in NA, but in EU it was rated 343 PS (338 hp), same as the E46 M3.

    So sad they didn’t make one on current E89 generation.

  7. […] Though the M2 isn’t the hardcore, tail-happy car that its BMW 1 Series M predecessor was, as it’s much too predictable. Yet, that isn’t a bad thing. The M2 grips better, is faster and is more controllable, even if it isn’t as exciting and hardcore as the 1M. However, that does make the M2 easier to learn and easier to drive quickly. It’s safer and far more friendly than the 1M – it’s less likely to bite you. If we were to describe the difference between the M2 and 1M in one sentence, it’d be “M2 is better than the 1M, but it’s not a 1M.” If we were to compare the M2 to another car, it’d actually be better compared to the BMW Z4 M.  […]
