The BMW Z4 is a roadster by the German auto maker BMW. It adheres to a line of past BMW roadsters such as the BMW Z1, BMW 507, BMW Z8, and the BMW Z3. The Z4 switches out the Z3. First generation manufacturing began in 2002 at BMW UNITED State’s Greer, South Carolina plant, with manufacturing of both roadster and coupe forms. When debuted, it gained Vehicle Magazine “Layout of the Year Award”. Beginning with the 2009 design year, the second-generation Z4 is developed at BMW’s Regensburg, Germany plant as a retracting hardtop roadster. In 2009, the BMW Z4 gained the Red Dot Style Award.
BMW Z4 First Generation (E85)
The first-generation BMW Z4 was designated the E85 in roadster kind and E86 in coupA© type. It was made by Danish BMW-designer Anders Warming. From 2003 the Z4 Roadster is readily available as a 3.0 i, a 3.0 si offered with the brand-new generation 3.0 L I6 with 265 hp (198 kW), a 2.5 si with a 2.5 I6 with 218 bhp (163 kW; 221 PS), a 2.2 i with a straight-6 170 bhp engine, or a 2.0 i with a 150 bhp (112 ; 152 PS) 2.0 L I4. The Z4 coupÃ© is offered only in the high-performance 3.0 si trim powered by the 3.0 L 255 hp I6. The Z4 was built at the Greer plant.
BMW Z4M Roadster
The Z4 M is powered by a 3.2-litre straight-six engine. Performance figures are: 3,246 cc variation, 333 brake horsepower (248 kW) at 7,900 revolutions per minute, 269 lb Â· ft of torque at 4,900 revolutions per minute, 8,000 revolutions per minute redline. Outcome per liter is 107 bhp, and power-to-weight proportion is 9.9 lb. Velocity to 60 miles per hour is available in 4.8 seconds and top speed is restricted digitally to 156 mph.
BMW Z4 Second generation (E89)
The car was initially revealed December 13, 2008. The vehicle was unveiled in 2009 North American International Automobile Show in Detroit. This time a coupA©-convertible with folding hardtop, the Z4 will certainly be built in Regensburg along with the 3-Series Cabrio, most likely because of the UNITED STATE plant needing more area for SUV production. It relocated upmarket, going down the little four-cylinder base engine. In late 2011 BMW reintroduced a 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder power plant with twin-scroll turbo.
