A new tuning program for the BMW Z4 has been released by the guys at SKN Motorsport. They were able to increase the cars power to over 400 hp, while also improving the driving dynamics. However, SKN is not your everyday tuning company, and in their latest press release they mention that the company previously modified police cars for undercover work. This BMW Z4 is nothing like a cop car though, but the list of aftermarket parts will have you checking your wallet to see if you can afford it all. Starting off the Z4 kit is a new stainless steel exhaust system with silencers, mufflers, and tailpipes. For better handling SKN installed an adjustable coilover system, and improvements under the hood come next.

The car tuning engineers at Manhart Racing have revealed a powerful version of the BMW Z4 with a 5.0-liter V10 engine producing 550 horsepower. That is more than a 200 hp increase from the factory 343 hp, and allows the car to sprint from 0-100 km/h in only 3.9 seconds. Along with the new 5.0-liter engine swap are new catalytic converters and a customized DME electronic control unit. To accomodate the large V10, the Manhart Racing BMW Z4 received an M5 E60 6 gear manual transmission, M5 E60 differential, and a Fichtel and Sachs clutch.

The car tuning specialists from G-Power have recently released a variety of modifications and styling for the new 2010 BMW Z4. The new model has yet to be launched in the showrooms by BMW, so G-Power was lucky to get the first chance at customizing it. Their company is well known for tuning BMWs and they hold some of the top speed records for particular models. For this BMW Z4, G-Power did not tune it as extreme as some of their previous works, but it definitely has a classy look. They chose some appealing modifications for the BMW, and it looks even better with the top down, but it’s too bad they didn’t release all of the pictures yet. For starters, their company went with the latest Bi-Tronik ECU tuning for the top of line sDrive35i variant.
