The New Z4 Roadster

The New Z4 Roadster

 

Roadsters have played a key role in BMW’s history, and the Z4 is set to write another chapter in the open-top story. Since the birth of the first example in 1936, the famous BMW 328, all roadsters have shared common proportions and design principles - long bonnet; low, set back driving position; long wheelbase with short overhangs and a fabric soft top. The new BMW Z4 is no different. It shares all of those traditional principles, but takes the roadster experience full throttle into the 21st century.
