All-carbon BMW Z4 M Coupe sheds 515 pounds

Carbon fiber specialist TC Kline Racing has created a new vehicle it calls the "Carbon Coupe," based on the BMW Z4M Coupe. Previously, the company built a Z4 roadster with a custom carbon body, weighing 400 lbs less than the regular version. Now, TC Kline has turned its attention to the Z4 coupe. The 100% autoclaved carbon fiber body brings the overall weight to 2780 lbs -- 515 pounds less than the standard 3295 lbs! The body is about two inches wider than the standard shell. Performance floating brake rotors with mono-block calipers have also been added. Finishing touches include custom 18" wheels, a lightweight flywheel, and a lighter battery. Output remains untouched at 330 horsepower. Gallery after the jump...
