BMW Z4 Recognized as Most Stylish Car of 2003
Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, June 5, 2003 ... Fashion website, eCityofStyle.com, selected the 2003 Z4 roadster 3.0i as one of the most stylish cars introduced for 2003. Out of a field of 200 luxury models, and 25 finalists, the Z4 was chosen as one of five winners, which are selected based on several factors including exterior and interior style, innovative details, fun-to-drive factor, product exclusivity and the car's overall envy quotient. Notably, the Z4 is the least expensive of the five award winners.
The all-new design of the Z4 is based on highly three-dimensional forms and the interplay between convex and concave surfaces, including two beltlines, a "twisting shoulder" and cut lines that don't just separate sections of the body, but are visual treats in and of themselves.
The Z4 has had more than its share of awards and accolades since its introduction in October, 2002, such as Automobile Magazine's "Design of the Year" for 2002 and a 2003 AMES award for environmentally safe 2003 model year products. Motor Trend magazine declared, "...the Z4 represents a bold new direction..." and Sports Car International gushed, "...the Z4 is nothing less than mesmerizing."
"Most auto awards focus on the practical aspect and overall functionality of the current model cars," said Ken Panton, editorial director of eCityofStyle.com. "in developing our auto award, we wanted to spotlight the cars based solely on their aesthetic sensibility", he added.
