BMW launches new BMW Z4 Roadster at Pebble Beach, CA
August 27, 2018: BMW unveiled the all-new 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition, the latest chapter in the history of BMW Z Roadsters, which began thirty years ago with the production of the BMW Z1. The Z4 has athletic proportions and a new emotional design language. The open-top two-seater personifies the classic roadster concept.
The latest generation of the BMW Roadster celebrated its World Premiere at precisely the same location that served as the stage for the World Premiere of the BMW Concept Z4 last year.
The central sitting position for the driver, the low center of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 weight distribution - the new BMW Z4 fulfills these expectations in every aspect. Vertically stacked headlights, the BMW kidney grille sporting a mesh design, the long clamshell hood stretching over the front wheels, large air breathes on the front wheel arches and the distinctive spoiler integrated into the rear lid all contribute towards the characteristic look of the new BMW Z4.
It is powered with an updated version of BMW’s iconic 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder engine, producing enough horsepower and torque to propel the BMW Z4 M40i from 0-60mph in under 4.4 seconds (estimated), with a lot other features like the BMW M tuned sports suspension with electronically controlled dampers, M Sport braking system and an electronically controlled M Sport rear differential.
The interior of the First Edition model features Vernasca black leather trim with decorative stitching and the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System.
Full Z4 model details and specifications will be announced on September 18, 2018. The all-new 2019 BMW Z4 30i will arrive in U.S. BMW Centers in Spring 2019 with the BMW Z4 M40i (including the First Edition) arriving in the Second Quarter.
