We've been seeing camouflaged photos of the 2010 BMW Z4 tested in various locales for well over a year, but the first, almost fully exposed image has popped up online this morning. The car was apparently in a BMW dealership during filming of a new Michael Douglas movie. We should be getting a full online reveal on December 15 and we'll see the car in person next month at the Detroit Auto Show. The new car cleans up a lot of the Bangle flame surfacing that marred the last car with the front bumper picking up hints of the latest 3-Series. The Z4 will also reportedly have a retractable hard-top in place of the current car's soft top. If that happens, the coupe will likely be consigned to history. Thanks to everyone who tipped us on this!

      Meant to be polarizing.
      But I kinda like it.

      Waaaaaaaaaaay too much going on with this car. I prefer smooth subtle design, not this atrocious over fabricated monster.

        Oh I'll comment. The Z is hideous. It always has been hideous. I can not understand how a company such as BMW can make something as beautiful as a 750 or 850 and turn around with a hideous piece of crap like this.

      It's starting to like kinda similar to the S2000...just with a bump in the hood

        You are right! Hopefully it wont weight much more than the AP1 did.

      looks all feminine again ..didn't they learn their lesson after the z3?!

      and those wheels certainly don't help. gah!

      I think the newer, post-Bangle BMW designs alienate the old-schoolers. Personally, the E34 5-series is my fav, then after the E39 it started a downward spiral.

      The E34 was timeless, sophisticated and sporty all at the same time. The new Z4, while racy, just doesn't seem very classy. It tries too hard, like a pin-stripped double-breasted Versace suit.

      Hopefully it drives better than it looks.

      5 link rear suspension vs old 3 link?

      Looks like the mongoloid love child of a Fisker Karma and a Maserati GranTurismo with the Jaguar XF as a common parent. Still looks better than the previous one though.

      The only car that the Bangle stuff worked on was the Z4- And it worked great there. They should have left it alone. Now it looks like very other crossfire/tiburon/mazda3
