BMW Unveils the new BMW Z4 M40i at Pebble Beach

COMMENTS

BMW for the first time has made the world premiere of the new BMW Z4 M40i today at Pebble Beach California.

A full BIMMERPOST Official release thread on the car is forthcoming in the next few weeks, but some highlights of the new Z4 include a 50:50 weight distribution and styling that closely mirrors the Z4 concept that was presented one year ago at Pebble Beach.

All the details on the Z4 are forthcoming within the next few weeks, but notable highlights include power derived from a 3.0L inline-6 (final horsepower figures still embargoed), but 0-60 times are expected to be in the 4.4second range. The new Z4 M40 will also come with an M-tuned electronically adjustable suspension, M Sport braking system and an electronically controlled M Sport rear differential.

In addition to the mechanical advancements, the new Z4 will also feature some new bits never seen in a Z car including adaptive LED headlights, BMW Head-Up Display and the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two high resolution digital displays and offering the latest networking technology

As is the current trend, BMW is also set to offer a unique BMW Z4 M40i First Edition. Highlights of the BMW Z4 M40i First Edition include:
  • Frozen Orange Metallic
  • Anthracite with silver effect softtop color
  • BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line
  • Black exterior mirror caps
  • 19-inch light alloy two-tone, double spoke wheels
  • Vernasca black leather trim
  • Harman Kardon Surround Sound System

In terms of the silhouette it looks like it took some styling cues from the AMG GT roadster....and that isn't a bad thing.

Promise Delivered: The World Premiere of the All-New BMW Z4 in Pebble Beach.

23.08.2018 Press Release
Pebble Beach, CA – August 23 10:30am PST…Today, BMW unveiled the all-new 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition, the latest chapter in the history of BMW Z Roadsters which began thirty years ago with the production of the BMW Z1. With athletic proportions and a new emotional design language, the open-top two-seater takes the classic roadster concept into the world of tomorrow.

BMW Unveils Z4 M40i Roadster First Edition on the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Reviewing Stand During Monterey Car Week.

Pebble Beach, CA – August 23 10:30am PST…Today, BMW unveiled the all-new 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition, the latest chapter in the history of BMW Z Roadsters which began thirty years ago with the production of the BMW Z1. With athletic proportions and a new emotional design language, the open-top two-seater takes the classic roadster concept into the world of tomorrow.

The latest generation of the BMW Roadster celebrates its World Premiere at precisely the same location that served as the stage for the World Premiere of the BMW Concept Z4 last year: The Reviewing Stand of the world renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where on Sunday one outstanding automobile will be presented with the prestigious Best in Show trophy. During the presentation last year, BMW Group Design Chief Adrian van Hooydonk stated “The BMW Concept Z4 Roadster is a promise of a production version planned for the future”. That future has now arrived.

With its pure and progressive design, the BMW Concept Z4 Roadster presented a vision of a charismatic sports car which now becomes a production car reality. Just a glance at the all-new BMW Z4’s proportions leaves no doubt about its sporting potential. The central sitting position for the driver, the low center of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 weight distribution; the new BMW Z4 fulfils these expectations in every aspect.

Vertically stacked headlights, the BMW kidney grille sporting a mesh design, the long clamshell hood stretching over the front wheels, large air breathes on the front wheel arches and the distinctive spoiler integrated into the rear lid all contribute towards the characteristic look of the new BMW Z4. The design of the interior places the focus on the pure sports driving enjoyment of the new BMW Z4. The driver-oriented cockpit styling is underscored by dynamic forward-oriented lines. Likewise, the clearly structured arrangement of all control elements enhances the focus on the driving experience inside the new BMW Z4.

For a perfect start into a new roadster era, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition offers specific design and equipment features that add exclusive accents to the car’s sporty flair. The expressive body paintwork in Frozen Orange Metallic is combined with an electrically operated textile soft top in anthracite with silver effect, the BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line, black exterior mirror caps and 19-inch light alloy wheels boasting a two-tone, double spoke design. The interior of the First Edition model features Vernasca black leather trim with decorative stitching, electrically adjustable seats with memory function and the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System. Adaptive LED headlights, BMW Head-Up Display featured for the first time in a BMW roadster and the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two high resolution digital displays, offering the latest networking technology underpin the advanced status of the tradition-steeped two-seater, open-top sports car interpretation that is being presented by BMW in the all-new Z4 Roadster.

Power for the new Z4 M40i First Edition Roadster is provided by an updated version of BMW’s iconic 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder engine producing enough horsepower and torque to propel the BMW Z4 M40i from 0-60mph in under 4.4 seconds (estimated). A BMW M tuned sports suspension with electronically controlled dampers, M Sport braking system and an electronically controlled M Sport rear differential will ensure that this latest M Performance Model can carve through the twists of the Laureles Grade as effortlessly as cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur.

Full Z4 model details and specifications to be announced on September 18, 2018. The all-new 2019 BMW Z4 30i will arrive in U.S. BMW Centers in Spring 2019 with the BMW Z4 M40i (including the First Edition) arriving in the Second Quarter.

Really like this car - although it would look even better in a decent colour other than grey. A rich metallic blue, for example. And that presenter is a complete d**k, by the way

Wtf?! Here I thought the 2 series active tourer was the ugliest BMW ever made. This is horrendous. The back is fantastic and the interior is awesome. But then the front just takes it all away. Such a shame. I guess this is what you get when you partner with Toyota.

The front has absolutely no flow, lines going to no where and the headlights look like the fiat spider. It's like they gave up. Wonder if Toyota got to design the front. The lines remind me of the awful current gen Lexus's.

Waste of a BMW. Hopefully the handling offsets the looks. :

It should be 382hp (285Kw) in North America (and some other regions) and 335hp (250Kw) in countries subject to WLTP.

I like how the iDrive looks more like part of the dash. I always liked the integrated look in my e90 better than the tablet popping up from the dash in my M2.

This car makes me jealous of everyone who doesn't require back seats.
