In order to celebrate 70 years from the Mille Miglia victory back in 1940s with Fritz Huschke von Hanstein and Walter Baumer driving a BMW 328 MM Touring Coupe, BMW announced a new variant of the new E89 2010 Z4 sDrive35is: Limited Edition Mille Miglia.
To keep this model very exclusive, BMW will only build 99 units, each coming with a Polaris Metallic matte finish, blacked out front grill, an M aerodynamic kit and 19-inch wheels finished in Dark Chrome. The Mille Miglia branding will be displayed both on the inside and outside the Roadster.
The interior design gets a sporty treatment with leather and Alcantara red stitching. The M Steering Wheel gets an update as well by adding red stitching around it.
The engine remains the same, the upgraded N54 version, 3.0-liter 6-cylinder twin turbo engine delivering 340 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matted to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
0 to 62mph is expected in just 4.8 seconds and top speed is limited to 155mph.
Stay tuned next week for our own review of the 2010 BMW Z4 sDrive35is.
