2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition G29

Based on the BMW Concept Z4 presented at Concours d’Elegance 2017 in Pebble Beach, BMW says the new edition of its roadster inspires not only with the agility, precision and dynamic handling characteristics that are typical of BMW M Performance models, but also thanks to particularly sophisticated design and equipment features, including a body painted in Frozen Orange metallic.


The central sitting position for the driver, the low centre of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 axle load distribution, wide track but compact wheelbase, form the ideal prerequisites for a dynamic drive.

The BMW Z4 M40i First Edition G29 comes with a powerful 340hp, straight six-cylinder engine, electronically-adjustable suspension, M Sport braking system and an electronically-controlled M Sport differential in the rear axle transmission. BMW says that the new car will sprint from a standstill to 62mph in 4.6 seconds. The model will also feature driver-focused interior styling, an electrically-operated, textile soft top in anthracite with silver effect, BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line black exterior mirror caps and 19in bicolour light alloy wheels. BMW will be premiering the new Z4 range next month, ahead of the worldwide market launch in the spring of 2019.

Sadly, the launch version of the new Z4 has lost those striking, i8 Roadster-like buttresses behind the headrests, which were such a feature of last year’s concept car. However, the interior looks suitably sporty and driver-focused.
