BMW has finally released some pictures and details concerning the redesigned Z4 Roadster. It will make an even better appearance during the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. This new model from BMW features the sDrive30i 3.0 liter, inline-six engines that can produce 255 horsepower. The sDrive35i is more powerful and uses twin turbochargers and direct injection to offer more horsepower.
Six-speed manual transmissions connect the engine to the wheels. The sDrive35i comes optional with the seven-speed double clutch transmission. This allows it to go from 0 to 60 mph in under five seconds.
The exterior of the new Z4 has been changed slightly and features swept back headlamps and front air dam details. These help to make the model seem bigger. However, it keeps to its lean look thanks to the new ducktail - which has been produced will a less aggressive design. One of the biggest changes is the brand new power hardtop. This is a two piece aluminum rood that opens and closes in 20 seconds with just a simple push of a button.
