The Z4 can now be purchased with one of BMW’s most iconic colors.
The Estoril Blue paint shade will be exclusively available on the 2016 BMW Z4 combined with the M Sport Package starting from July 2015, the German automaker has announced.
The Estoril Blue metallic paint shade has become a long-time favorite among BMW fans, often seen on the BMW 3 Series and various M models throughout BMW’s history. Although Estoril Blue was dropped from the 2015 model year color palette on the M Sport 3 Series models, it will return for the 2016 model year for the popular sedan.
No other changes were announced for the 2016 BMW Z4, which is expected to get a thorough revamp using a platform that is being co-developed with Toyota. The Japanese automaker will be using the platform for its new Supra successor while BMW will take advantage of the collaboration for a new-generation roadster. Reports say that the Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 won’t be rivals despite sharing a platform and that both automakers intend to keep their new sports cars in separate categories for years to come.
