“From the dynamic looking front to the striking flanks to the clean cut tail: a few lines and the subtle interplay between surfaces are enough to generate a sense of power,” the Senior Vice President of BMW Group Design, Adrian van Hooydonk. explained.“A shorter bonnet and crisp overhangs ensure the driver sits closer to the centre of the car than in previous BMW roadsters,” he says. The new Z4 will offer the choice of two petrol engines from the start of sales in 2018. Included is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. Wheel sizes should range from standard 17-inchers to an optional 19-inch package offered in a bundle with bigger brakes.
There were suggested three different versions of the Z4. The base s20i will likely be powered by the brand’s 2.0-liter turbo inline-four presently rated at 180 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque in the BMW 320i. The s30i features the same engine in 248 hp, 258 lb-ft guise, with the Z4 M40i using a version of the 320 hp, 340 lb-ft straight-six from the 340i.Production of the new Z4 and its Toyota Supra sibling is planned to begin at manufacturing specialist Magna in Graz, Austria in early 2018.
