All of the attention is going to the 2019 BMW Z4 M40i as it competes head-to-head with it’s sibling on the same platform, the all new 2020 Toyota Supra. There’s so much excitement around the return of the iconic car that BMW is having a hard time getting attention for the return of its less-iconic roadster, but we’re paying attention.
BMW is trying to make us all pay more attention as well by releasing updated 0-60 times. They started with a conservative 4.4 second estimate, but once the Supra clocked in at 4.1 seconds, BMW decided to do what other automakers do: get aggressive with their 0-60 times. It updated to 3.9 seconds, making it not only faster than the Supra but faster than any Z4 before it.
It accomplishes this with a 3.9L inline-6 that delivers 382 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This is the other reason they had to release new 0-60 numbers. They didn’t want to have to answer questions of how the Supra was faster with less horsepower and only a few dozen pounds lower curb weight.
Specs and new numbers aside, the real difference-maker for this ride is the new soft top. They made a big mistake with a retractable hard top on the previous generation, which may have contributed to its three year hiatus. Now that it’s back to a soft top that is retractable in under 10 seconds while driving, we can have our fun once again the old fashioned way.
And it looks fantastic.
“The BMW Z4 showcases BMW’s new design language from all perspectives from the dynamic looking front to the striking flanks to the clean tail end,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.
By combining true sport car speed with the sleek and enjoyable roadster feel, the open air is attainable. Starting at $84,900, it isn’t cheap, but it wouldn’t be a BMW if it was.
