A Closer Look at 2014 BMW Z4 – VideoSaturday, January 26, 2013 10:50 by Arman Barari
BMW decided not to change the Z4 Roadster for the 2014 model, not because they couldn’t be bothered, but because it has a recipe that works well, so why change it. Instead, they tweaked it a bit, with new two-tone paint finishes, revised details, and upgraded equipments. It is still one of the, if not the, best sports roadsters in the market.
This new promo video tries to showcase the new styling details, but don’t strain your eyes to spot them. The Z4 is a perfectly beautiful car, and that’s what matters.
The BMW Z4 will continue to be available in the US with one four-cylinder and two inline-six powerplants. Their most significant shared feature is BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which ensures an exceptionally effective balance between driving pleasure and fuel consumption throughout the range.
The BMW sDrive28i features BMW’s award-winning TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter four cylinder engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It powers the BMW Roadster from 0 – 60 mph in 5.5 seconds with the 6-speed manual (5.6 with the 8-speed automatic). The BMW Z4 sDrive35i features BMW’s N54 TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline-6, producing 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. It goes 0 – 60 mph in five seconds flat with the7-speed DCT (5.1 with the 6-speed manual). The top-range Z4 sDrive35is features a higher-output version of BMW’s venerable N54 producing 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque and the 7-speed DCT. The top model goes from 0 – 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds.
