Z4M Coupe Livery

I was lying in bed last night, over tired from work, and I got the hair brained idea to do Photoshop of an old school GT40 livery wrap on my Z4M coupe. It looks like crap, but I thought you guys might be amused...

I'm a sucker for Gulf livery, and I think your rendering is pretty good. It's the car that's the issue, IMO. I've seen many pics of liveries on Z4MC's and they all look a bit....weird.

Now, once you add a GT3 widebody....

Pretty cool that you can do that. I wonder what a Martini Racing livery might do.

one of our members did that a while back. I can't seem to find the thread here, but he's easy to find over on drive2 by searching for "z4 martini racing". he made a YouTube vid as well...

@mainsoda ... you might consider looking at pics of old Triumph GT6 or MGb GT race cars to see how those guys used classic racing livery. the shape of that car is similar-ish to the e86, and may give you some ideas. I'm quite partial to the Ferrari 250 GTO silver and yellow livery... simple, and it's not too busy, but still iconic.

as a side note... looking at all these old pics makes me wonder what a set of Roti's would like on an e86

I found a pretty good one online today, better than mine. I like the look of this design with the black bottom and the ring around the grills.

I actually like this and am going to do the Bottom Pic.

Any chance you could do some other colours for me?

THX in advance

Try the McLaren Marlboro livery of the late 80s/early 90s Formula 1 Ayrton Senna cars...might actually look pretty good
