The BMW Z4 sDrive35i Roadster offers the kind of serious performance that, only a decade previously was limited to exotic super-cars. The twin-turbo 3 litre engine gets the best out of the well balanced chassis. Massive low-down pulling power makes overtaking easy and while the Z4’s handling isn’t quite at Porsche levels of precision it is predictable and reassuring to drive.
BMW’S all new Z4 is a stunning proposition. Gone are the days when a roadster meant minimal creature comforts; the new Z4 is certainly not short of luxuries and for the first time, features a folding hardtop. The elegant lines are easier on the eye than the previous model without loosing its aggressive stance. With BMW’s track record you can expect it to be a rewarding drive too.
