The Boldmen CR4 has been revealed as a coach-built G29 BMW Z4 M40i for consumers that are looking for something a bit more exclusive. Born from the mind of Friedhelm Wiesmann, the bespoke creation is an almost complete re-engineering of the Bavarian roadster.
All of the body panels that give the Boldmen CR4 its outlandish exterior design have all been made from carbon fibre, not unlike what we saw with the Wiesmann products. With this, the coachbuilder has been able to reduce the car’s kerb mass from 1 535 kg to 1 495 kg.
Further increasing the Boldmen CR4’s appeal is the M40i’s B58 twin-scroll turbocharged 3,0-litre straight-six engine which has been tuned up from 285 kW and 500 N.m of torque to 294 kW and 610 N.m. The eight-speed torque converter sending power to the rear wheels remains unaltered. With this, the manufacturer claims a 0-100 km/h time of 3,9 seconds while top speed remains limited to 250 km/h.
The CR4 moniker is broken down to define the composition of the car with it being a carbon roadster with 400 PS. The range will launch with a First Thirty Edition which has a €184 900 (approximately R3 180 000) price tag attached to it. The total production run for the Boldmen CR4 will be capped at 100 units but if demand is strong it will consider increasing this. 20 of these will be delivered throughout the remainder of this year.
