BMW’s rich history of roadsters is about continue with the new BMW Z4. The two-seater has been systematically designed for maximum agility, thrilling dynamism, plus supremely precise steering characteristics with instantaneous response.
Compared to its predecessor, the new BMW Z4 has grown in length by 85 millimetres to 4,324 millimetres, is 74 millimetres wider (now 1,864 millimetres) and 13 millimetres taller (1,304 millimetres). The shortening of the wheelbase by 26 millimetres to 2,470 millimetres serves to sharpen agility, as do the notably wider tracks – 1,609 millimetres at the front (+ 98 mm) and 1,616 millimetres at the rear (+ 57 mm).
The body structure and chassis mountings both have remarkably high rigidity, while the new design of the front and rear axles gives the car a far sportier edge at the same time as guaranteeing high levels of comfort. The central seating position, low centre of gravity, minimised weight and ideal
50 : 50 weight distribution are further contributory factors in the intoxicating dynamism of the new BMW Z4.
BMW Z4 will be launched in March 2019 with a choice of three model variants, including a BMW M Performance option. The new BMW Z4 M40i is powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine delivering 250 kW/340 hp. The BMW Z4 sDrive30i and BMW Z4 sDrive20i take to the stage with four-cylinder units producing outputs of 190 kW/258 hp and 145 kW/197 hp respectively.
