Bulletproof Automotive’s BMW Z4 GT Continuum Isn’t Actually Bulletproof at SEMA

When we first read about this BMW Z4 over at the 2015 SEMA, we thought it may actually be bulletproof. That lasted only for about half a second as the armor hidden in the doors or hood or even the trunk of the car couldn’t save you in the case of an armed attack. Why? Because you have no roof or windows!

Yes, roadsters can’t be used for bulletproof projects, but then again, the guys from Bulletproof Automotive aren’t in that business. They’re in the business of tuning cars and they’re pretty good at it, too.

They used this E89 BMW Z4 to show off their skills and you can color us impressed. The car was turning heads sitting tight at the Toyo stand and we couldn’t help but write a few words about it.

The BMW Z4 GT Continuum project, as they call it, was tuned in JDM style and, as you can see, it has a vented hood, the air vents reminding us of old Skylines and Z cars that were specially prepared to take on curvy mountain roads, sideways.

The windscreen was almost entirely removed, while the metal folding roof was scraped off for good, leaving this car vulnerable to rain and other manifestations of Mother Nature. There’s also a wide body kit involved in the mix that is perfectly complemented by the new spoiler and its carbon fiber canards, as well as the air splitter.

Around the back you get a new bumper that’s decorated with a diffuser and probably the biggest wing you can get at the moment if you’re not racing in GT3 Motorsport events.

To top it all off, the whole thing was brought down, closer to the ground, with an adjustable suspension, while the no less than six tailpipes were pulled out right behind the front wheels, through the front fenders. That may as well be the most interesting change on the car, as those short pipes must make a terrible ruckus. You can check them all out in the gallery below.
