Smit Oletha: a stylish two-door for fans of the BMW Z8 roadster.

Startup Smit Vehicle Engineering has unveiled its first model, the Oletha coupe built with an eye on the BMW Z8 roadster.

Apparently, this two-door was based on the BMW Z4 Coupe E86, produced from 2006 to 2008.

This is evidenced by the rear and side windows, as well as the similar location of the gas tank hatch.

At the same time, the Oletha coupe has a new body made of carbon fiber, and its torsional rigidity is declared at the level of 30,000 Nm/gr.

The exterior design is made in a retro style.

The two-door has flattened «nostrils» of the grille, distinctive headlights and humped hood.

Its stern has lights (like on the Z8), as well as a pair of oval exhaust pipes.

Interestingly, the nose and stern of the sports car are unmarked, and plaques Smit Vehicle Engineering can be seen only on the vent slots on the front wings and hubcaps.
