a 2007 bmw z4 m coupe probably isn’t the first car that comes to mind when you hear the term "off-roader," but this "safari style" z4 is the latest in a lengthy history of sports cars going off the beaten, and paved, path. lancia pioneered the all-terrain sports car when it took the stratos rallying back in the 1970s, and porsche tried its hand by entering the 953, a modified 911, and the 959 into the paris-dakar rally. more recently, a dutch dealership called classic youngtimers consultancy turned a nissan gt-r, bentley continental, and lamborghini gallardo into off-roaders, and this customized z4 m, which is for sale on the bring a trailer auction site, is in a similar vein to the creations of classic youngtimers.
according to the listing, the 2007 z4 m was bought by the seller last year before it was converted to "safari" spec. repainted in satin black, the z4 m received modified fenders and bumpers to fit the 17-inch black rhino wheels and chunky 235/65 toyo open country a/t tires. the seller also attached four circular baja design rally lights above the kidney grilles and strapped a 40-inch aurora led light bar to the unique roof rack. the most drastic visual changes are around back, where the rear hatch was redesigned to fit two protruding spare tires.
under the hood, the 3.2-liter s54 inline-six was left mostly stock, meaning it churns out a healthy 330 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. however, the z4 m was given a custom adjustable ground control suspension and an aftermarket skid plate for handling bumpy, rocky trails. the black leather interior was also relatively untouched, and includes a three-spoke m-branded steering wheel, a cd player, and automatic climate control.
bidding for the 2007 z4 m safari currently sits at $15,000, but there are still four days remaining on the auction. the car comes with a carfax report and a clean virginia title, although there are apparently some discrepancies with the odometer, which shows 150,000 miles.
