The 2009 BMW Z4 is not yet available to the consumers, but it has already starting to win awards. Each year, the Detroit Auto Show hosts the Eyes on Design Awards. The awards for design excellence are split into two categories: Concept and Production Vehicles. The winners were selected by a panel of 20 judges, all design executives.

Some of the jury members were the BMW design chief Chris Bangle, Harley-Davidson chief styling officer Willy G. Davidson, and transportation design chair at the College for Creative Studies Larry Erickson.


Not to our surprise, three out of the four awards were taken by german automaker, with Cadillac saving the day for U.S. based companies.

And as expected, the new 2009 BMW Z4 has won the Production Vehicles award along with the new Audi R8 V10. Audi scored a major win by taking the award for Concept Vehicles with its new Sportback model. The Cadillac Converj took the concept honors.

It’s great to see that the new BMW Z4 is considered a main attraction at the Detroit Auto Show and even more, that it is highly appreciated.
