Премьера родстера состоялась на шоу в Пеббл-Бич.

После бесконечного ожидания, бесчисленных шпионских фотографий и множества слухов BMW Z4 2019 модельного года наконец-то представлена официально — родстер показали в Пеббл-Бич.

Премьерной модификацией стала флагманская на момент запуска версия BMW Z4 M40i в особом исполнении First Edition. Но первой в продажу весной 2019 года поступит более скромная Z4 30i, а в от Z4 M40i придётся ждать до второго квартала.

Версия M40i оснащается 3-литровым 6-цилиндровым турбомотором, мощность которого в европейской версии составит 335 л.с. С учётом того, что его сертифицируют по стандартам Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure, мощность американского варианта может быть мощнее.

Вариант First Edition отличается адаптивной подвеской, спортивными тормозами и задним дифференциалом с электронной блокировкой. Пока это всё, что известно о родстере — полные технические характеристики обнародуют 18 сентября.

Серийный автомобиль выдержан в духе концепт-кара, хотя и чуть упростился по пути к конвейеру. Но сохранены множественные воздухозаборники, фирменные "почки" решётки радиатора и другие привлекательные элементы, включая яркий цвет кузова Frozen Orange Metallic.

В профиль можно отметить "жабры", расположенные за передними колёсными арками, 19-дюймовые чёрные колёса с двойными спицами, а очень короткая задняя часть с двумя трапециевидными патрубками выхлопа увенчана спойлером на крышке багажника. При это новая BMW Z4 будет только с мягким складным верхом.

Салон отличается современным оснащением. У родстера цифровая приборная панель, проекционный дисплей перед водителем, новая мультимедийная система, спортивные кресла, акустика Harman Kardon и множество другого оборудования, детали о котором станут известны осенью.

Promise Delivered: The World Premiere of the All-New BMW Z4
in Pebble Beach.


BMW Unveils Z4 M40i Roadster First Edition on the Pebble Beach Concours
d’Elegance Reviewing Stand During Monterey Car Week.


Pebble Beach, CA – August 23 10:30am PST…Today, BMW unveiled the all-new 2019
BMW Z4 M40i First Edition, the latest chapter in the history of BMW Z Roadsters which began
thirty years ago with the production of the BMW Z1. With athletic proportions and a new
emotional design language, the open-top two-seater takes the classic roadster concept into
the world of tomorrow.


The latest generation of the BMW Roadster celebrates its World Premiere at precisely the
same location that served as the stage for the World Premiere of the BMW Concept Z4 last
year: The Reviewing Stand of the world renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where
on Sunday one outstanding automobile will be presented with the prestigious Best in Show
trophy. During the presentation last year, BMW Group Design Chief Adrian van Hooydonk
stated “The BMW Concept Z4 Roadster is a promise of a production version planned for the
future”. That future has now arrived.


With its pure and progressive design, the BMW Concept Z4 Roadster presented a vision of a
charismatic sports car which now becomes a production car reality. Just a glance at the all-new
BMW Z4’s proportions leaves no doubt about its sporting potential. The central sitting position 
for the driver, the low center of gravity, perfectly balanced 50:50 weight distribution; the new
BMW Z4 fulfils these expectations in every aspect.


Vertically stacked headlights, the BMW kidney grille sporting a mesh design, the long clamshell
hood stretching over the front wheels, large air breathes on the front wheel arches and the
distinctive spoiler integrated into the rear lid all contribute towards the characteristic look of the
new BMW Z4. The design of the interior places the focus on the pure sports driving enjoyment
of the new BMW Z4. The driver-oriented cockpit styling is underscored by dynamic forwardoriented
lines. Likewise, the clearly structured arrangement of all control elements enhances
the focus on the driving experience inside the new BMW Z4.


For a perfect start into a new roadster era, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition offers specific
design and equipment features that add exclusive accents to the car’s sporty flair. The
expressive body paintwork in Frozen Orange Metallic is combined with an electrically operated
textile soft top in anthracite with silver effect, the BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line,
black exterior mirror caps and 19-inch light alloy wheels boasting a two-tone, double spoke
design. The interior of the First Edition model features Vernasca black leather trim with
decorative stitching, electrically adjustable seats with memory function and the Harman Kardon
Surround Sound System. Adaptive LED headlights, BMW Head-Up Display featured for the
first time in a BMW roadster and the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two high resolution
digital displays, offering the latest networking technology underpin the advanced status of the
tradition-steeped two-seater, open-top sports car interpretation that is being presented by
BMW in the all-new Z4 Roadster.


Power for the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition is provided by an uprated 3.0 liter inline 6-
cylinder engine producing 382 hp (US model rating) and 369 lb-ft of torque which will be
enough to propel the BMW Z4 M40i from 0-60mph in under 4.4 seconds (estimated). A BMW
M tuned sports suspension with electronically controlled dampers, M Sport braking system and
an electronically controlled M Sport rear differential will ensure that this latest M Performance
Model can carve through the twists of the Laureles Grade as effortlessly as cruising along the
Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur.


Full Z4 model details and specifications to be announced on September 18, 2018. The all-new
2019 BMW Z4 30i will arrive in U.S. BMW Centers in Spring 2019 with the BMW Z4 M40i
(including the First Edition) arriving in the Second Quarter.
