Add a little carbon fiber to your Z4's diet

TC Kline Racing debuted its Carbon Roadster at last year's SEMA, but we thought it was worth revisiting since we ourselves had never visited it before. The Ohio based tuner has taken a BMW Z4 M roadster and faithfully reskinned it entirely in carbon fiber, effectively shaving 500 lbs. off of the car's weight in one very expensive fell swoop. It still looks like a Z4, but with much larger fender flares to accommodate giant 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.

A host of other alterations have been made to the $95,000 Carbon Roadster, of which only 100 will be produced. Power is spiked to 346 horsepower, up from 330 thanks to a lighter aluminum flywheel and freer flowing exhaust. So, you've got a car lighter than an S2000 and as powerful as a 911. Sounds like a winning combination, especially with the optional "Track Attack" racing package.
