2010 BMW Z4 Roadster is the first all-new, top-to-bottom redesign
of the Z4 model which was originally
launched in 2002.
The 2010 Z4 has a sleeker profile and more subtle "flame
surfacing" body lines than the previous model. In general
the car has a more balanced and matured appearance to it. That's
not to say the roadster has lost any of its visual appeal, it's
just been refined and tweaked to fit better with the current
BMW styling direction.
The front end of the 2010 BMW Z4 has undergone the most obvious
transformation. The headlights are thinner and sweep back further
into the wheel arches, and the trademark BMW kidney grilles
have been elongated to better match the headlights. Down the
sides the controversial styling slash which intersected the
fender mounted BMW badge has been replaced by a more conventional
panel. The BMW badge is now fitted just forward of the doors
and adjacent to the side indicators which are cleverly integrated
into the metalwork.
Unlike the original Z4 Roadster which used a fabric roof, the
2010 model is fitted with a retractable metal roof which folds
away neatly into the rear storage area. 20 seconds is all it
takes for the roof to electronically raise or lower itself.
The 2010 BMW Z4 is offered with a choice of three different
engine options. The Z4 sDrive23i model is equipped with a 2.5
litre inline 6 cylinder which develops 204 horsepower. The Z4
sDrive30i is fitted with a 258 horsepower / 228 lb-ft of torque
naturally aspirated 3.0 litre 6 cylinder. The top level Z4 is
the sDrive35i version which is powered by a twin-turbocharged,
3.0 litre, inline 6 cylinder which pumps out 306 horsepower.
With this engine the Z4 can hit 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds.
The Z4 can be fitted with either a 6 speed manual gearbox or
a 7 speed dual-clutch transmission.
