A new leak pops up – and still unconfirmed – this time around showing the upcoming G29 BMW Z4. Judging by the image posted by Instagram account liucunyi, this indeed seems to point to the final design of the Z4. The background of the photo might also indicate a closed-room showing since BMW has started to introduce the cars to VIPs from around the world.
The unveil of the G29 Z4 is not scheduled until August 23rd on the Pebble Beach golf lawn, but as we’ve seen recently, leaked images are bound to happen.
At market launch, the US market will offer two models, the four-cylinder 2.0 liter-powered sDrive30i and the M Performance Automobile model – M40i.
Both models will go on sale in Spring 2019 as a 2020 Model Year. Sales of the four-cylinder 30i will start in March 2019 and will be priced in the low $50,000 range, while the G29 Z4 M40i will arrive in April and it’s expected to sale for a base price in the mid-to-high $60,000.
The two-seat roadster will use the well-known ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. While a manual gearbox is out of the picture, the electronically controlled limited-slip differential is standard which will make the drive more dynamic and intriguing.
