Over 80 years since the very first BMW roadster went on sale, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition has taken open-top driving pleasure to new heights.
Based on the BMW Concept Z4 presented at Concours d'Elegance 2017 in Pebble Beach, this exclusive model combines the sporting character of a roadster with the agility, precision and dynamic handling typical of BMW M Performance models. And what's more, it's limited to just 444 units worldwide, 45 of which will be coming to the UK.
The BMW Z4 M40i First Edition accelerates from 0 to 62mph in a mere 4.6 seconds, an experience that whets the appetite for more.
With a powerful 340hp, straight 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 turns open-top driving pleasure into a sporting revelation.
The central sitting position for the driver, the low centre of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 axle load distribution, wide tracks and a compact wheelbase form the ideal prerequisites for a dynamic drive.
The new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition inspires with its sophisticated design and equipment features, including an exclusive and striking body paintwork in Frozen Orange metallic. This is combined with an electrically operated textile soft top in anthracite with silver effect, BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line, Black exterior mirror caps and 19-inch light alloy wheels boasting a bicolour, double-spoke design.
Furthermore, together with the M-specific air inlets, Adaptive LED headlights with matrix function for the high beam and BMW kidney grille with mesh design give the illusion of extra width at the front.
The interior of the edition model comprises the Vernasca black leather trim with decorative stitching, electrically adjustable seats with memory function, the option ambient light and the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System. All enhancing the driving experience from inside the car. BMW Head-Up Display featured for the first time in a roadster and the BMW Live Cockpit Professional offering the latest networking technology underpin the advanced status the tradition-steeped concept of a two-seater, open-top sports car has reached with the new BMW Z4.
The world premiere of the BMW Z4 M40i First Edition in Pebble Beach is a taster of the forthcoming on-road debut of the new roadster generation. BMW will announce all details of further engine variants, technical innovations and the diverse equipment features of the two-seater on 19 September 2018.
