BMW Z6 leads off growing Z-series

The BMW Z8 might have tanked a bit, but BMW isn't phased... much. The replacement is the BMW Z6, which BMW will pit against the Mercedes' SL class. The car will be produced in a higher volume at a lower price than the $130,000 Z8, and accompanied by two other Z-series vehicles, the entry level BMW Z2 and successor to the BMW Z4. The Z6 will use the BMW 5- and 6-series as a basis and sport "space-age" construction utilitizing such materials as aluminum and sport engines ranging from the twin-turbocharged 3.0 V6 to a "beefed-up" version of the 5.0L V10 found in the M5.
