The new BMW Z4 will debut at the January Detroit Motor Show, but today the Bavarians are sharing with us information about the new product. By the way, they are confident that the demand for it will be great regardless of the global crisis.
The 2010 Z4 has a rigid retractable roof that opens and closes in 20 seconds, but is much heavier than a cloth roof, which has an impact on the roadster’s handling.
The simplest modification of the Z4, called sDrive23i, is equipped with a 2.5-liter engine that develops 204 hp. and 250 Nm of torque. The version above is the sDrive30i with a 3.0-liter 258-horsepower engine (210 Nm). The top modification received the already well-proven 3-liter twin-turbo engine on the 135i and 335i models and an impressive 306 hp. and 400 Nm, which, in combination with a manual transmission, make it possible to change the first hundred in 5.2 seconds. The optional dual-clutch robotic assault rifle accelerates the 306-horsepower Z4 to 100 km / h in 0.1 seconds. At the same time, all three engines are quite environmentally friendly and comply with Euro-5 standards.
The new Z4 is the first to carry several new electronic systems developed by BMW. These are Adaptive M Suspension — a three-mode adaptive suspension with a 10 mm ride height, and Drive Dynamic Control, which determines the driving style and changes the steering and gas pedal settings in accordance with it.
