Copper looks as though it’s been used for the roll bars, parts of the dashboard and door handles. The exterior is matte black with a copper roof and copper alloy wheels.

Interestingly, the BMW Z series was first introduced in 1987, the same year that steampunk was first given a name, so it seems perfectly fitting that the Z4 should be chosen. However, this isn’t the first car that Carlex have given a steampunk look. Back in 2012, they revealed a Mini Cooper with wooden seat backs.

As far as steampunk upgrades go, this is one of the best custom made jobs I’ve seen. I suppose it helps that the car is stunning to begin with. I do wonder how the Z3 would look with a dieselpunk upgrade. I think the 1950s styling would work well.Carlex Design BMW Z4 steampunk upgrade
