BMW Z Spyder Stradale Rumored as Successor to Z8


BMW insider SCOTT26, posting on E90Post.com has dropped another juicy rumor on us: a successor to the Z8. Known internally as the Z Spyder Stradale the car is rumored to be the pet-project of BMW boss Norbert Reithofer.

The name Spyder Stradale comes from a special version of the BMW 328 MM dating from the 1940s.

Not only would the new super sports car be a flagship vehicle in terms of performance and style, it would also be an example of BMW's "efficient dynamics" engineering expertise. As such it would use a carbon fiber body to keep weight to a minimum – even using a carbon fiber retractable hard top. Also included in the package would be active aerodynamics – like an automatically adjusting rear spoiler and air vents up front that close at speed.

No specifics for the engine have yet been released with the possibility of a V8 or V10 being raised – although we have to think a hybrid setup mated to a turbo inline-six (similar to the one in the Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept) would be perfect. There's even a possibility of a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission.

A concept version of the Spyder Stradale is believed to be unveiled at next-year's Frankfurt Auto Show.

i sure hope this isn't one of the cars that is produced directly off the rendering, because, honestly, that is ugly.
