The new two-seat roadster 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition debuted this week at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The vehicle’s reveal comes a year after BMW delivered a concept version of the Z4 Roadster at Pebble Beach. The new Z4 stays true to the concept that debuted at Pebble Beach last year, with a long hood, short overhangs, vertically stacked headlights and a dual kidney grilles, but instead of vertical slats they get a 3-D mesh pattern finished in black.
BMW gave the new M40i First Edition an M adaptive suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers. It will also have M Sport brakes and an M Sport rear differential. First Edition models feature a number of options from BMW’s Individual program of exclusive colors and materials, including Frozen Orange Metallic paint, decorative stitching on black leather seats and gloss-black interior trim. The Z4 M40i First Edition will also come with BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional, a digital gauge cluster with two displays.
The Z4 M40i First Edition Roadster gets a 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine that goes 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. The 2019 Z4 M30i will hit showrooms first, arriving in spring. The Z4 M40i will follow in the second quarter.
