Check out this new tuning package for the E89 BMW Z4 from Canadian tuners MWDesign. The story and photos inside.
Engineers at Meister Werke Design + Technik, also known as MWDesign, have developed a new Z car based on their experience in luxury automotive tuning and love for all types of design work. The MWDesign Project E89 Z4 3.5, which company founders Lewis Fan and Michael Wong call the "Slingshot", has an upgraded engine control unit that allows for 400 horsepower (298 kW, 406 PS) and up to 569 Nm (420 ft-lb) of torque.
From their workshop in Vancouver, Canada, the tuning team paid close attention to the car's airflow, adding an intercooler, diverter valves, and charge pipe from Stett Performance, as well as a stepped up intake filter and an Eisenmann Black Series quad exhaust with midpipe. Adjustable swaybars were also added, along with adjustable swaybars, new springs, and better shocks. Toyo Proxes tires wrap around new 8.5x20-inch front, 10x20-inch rear forged wheels.
The exterior of the car has been modified with serveral carbon fiber parts, including front splitters, quad rear diffuser, and accenting, were fitted to the vehicle. Even though the car has a new front and rear spoiler, the original kidney grille remains to show everybody its still a BMW at heart.
Interior modifications were kept to a minimum. However, painted roll bars and a new wind deflector were put in place.
Pricing on the MWDesign Project Slingshot based on the E89 BMW Z4 was not disclosed.
