Worldwide car radio BMW has presented the exclusive first edition of the new open sports car, BMW Z4, on the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Monterey, California (USA), the well-known location of the Concours d & # 39; Elegance.
BMW had redefined the roadster for the megalancering that was held this week. With dynamic proportions, emotional design and fascinating sportiness, the open-top two-seater would bring the classic roadster concept into the world of today and tomorrow.
In Pebble Beach, the Munich-based premium car manufacturer presented the exclusive BMW Z4 M40i First Edition (combined fuel consumption: 7.1 – 7.4 l / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions: 162-168 g / km).
The limited special edition of the roadster not only inspires the maneuverability, precision and dynamic driving characteristics that are so typical of the BMW M Performance models, but also with particularly advanced design and equipment features, including bodypaintwork in Frozen Orange metallic.
The new edition of the roadster celebrates its world premiere at exactly the same location that served as a podium for the first public presentation of the BMW Concept Z4 last year.
With its purist, dynamic and progressive design language, the concept vehicle presented a vision of a charismatic sports car that is now becoming reality thanks to the production model.
Just a look at the proportions of the new BMW Z4 leaves no doubt about its dynamic potential. The central seating position for the driver, the low center of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 axle load distribution, wide tracks and a compact wheelbase form the ideal conditions for inspiring agile handling and intense driving pleasure.
The BMW Z4 M40i First Edition meets all these expectations in every aspect thanks to an extremely powerful 250 kW / 340 hp six cylinder engine and a sports suspension with electronically controlled dampers, M Sport Braking System and an electronically controlled M Sport differential in the rear axle transmission.
The German car-major said that the BMW M Performance car only needs 4.6 seconds to sprint from standstill to 100 km / h.
Vertically aligned headlamps, the BMW kidney grille with a mesh design, the bonnet-like sports car above the wheels, large air aspirators on the front wheel housings and the eye-catching spoiler integrated in the tailgate all contribute to the distinctive appearance of the new BMW Z4, it says.
The design of the interior also emphasizes the purist sportiness of the new BMW Z4. The driver-oriented cockpit styling is underlined by dynamic forward-facing lines.
In the same way, the clearly structured arrangement of all controls reinforces the driving experience within the new BMW Z4.
For a perfect start to a new roadster era, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition also offers specific design and equipment features that add exclusive touches to the sporty flair of the car.
The expressive bodypaintwork in Frozen Orange metallic is combined with an electrically operated soft textile fabric in anthracite with silver effect, the BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line, black door mirror caps and 19-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone design with twin spokes, said a BMW statement.
The interior of the edition model consists of the Vernasca black leather upholstery with decorative stitching, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, the option ambient light and the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System.
Adaptive LED headlamps with matrix function for high beam, BMW Head-Up Display for the first time in a roadster and the Live Cockpit Professional with the latest network technology support the advanced status of the tradition-thoughtful concept of a two-seater, open-top sports car has achieved with the new BMW Z4, said.
The world premiere of the BMW Z4 M40i First Edition at Pebble Beach offers both an exclusive and fascinating foretaste of the upcoming debut on the road of the new roadster generation.
