    BMW Designer's favorite design of his is the Z3

    Y'all ought to know who was the father of the Z3 from the design-perspective.

    That man is Joji Nagashima whom holds 22 design patents as of 2007 and was responsible for the creation of the Z3 roadster, E39 5-series, and E90 3-series sedan.

    His favorite car out of his designs? The Z3

    June 2011 issue of BIMMER Magazine - interview with Mr. Nagashima:

    e90 design notwithstanding, an otherwise stellar resume.

    I have to go with the e39 as one of the most beautiful BMWs produced IMHO.

    So in a way, the Z3 is Japanese.
