The growing importance of China has led many carmakers to introduce a variety of dedicated special edition models created especially for the domestic market. In the recent past, the BMW Group has presented many such vehicles, including but not limited to, the M3 Matte and Tiger Editions.
The Bavarian firm's latest attempt to capture the attention of Chinese buyers with a special version is the Z4 sDrive23i Flame Edition.
The China-only model is based on the Z4 hardtop roadster with a 2.5-liter straight-six petrol engine that generates 204HP for 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 7.3 seconds.
On the outside, the Flame Edition gets a distinct yellow finish and alloy wheel designs.
Interior modifications include seats dressed in a combination of Alcantara and leather with yellow accents. The same color makes its appearance on the lower parts of the dashboard, the center panels of which are trimmed in Alcantara with yellow piping.

The company notes, however, that there can be “no assurance” that the negotiations will be completed successfully and the final agreement will be reached on the already discussed or different terms.
Maybe that’s because Muller knows from his prior experience with Saab and Spyker and their former suitor, Victor Antonov, that it ain’t over until it’s really over…
