The network has flowed images of the new roadster of the Bavarian brand.

In the pictures published in the Instagram-account of the user liucunyi, the roadster BMW Z4 M40i is photographed. The car is photographed from three camera angles – front, side and back. Although, the photos are not of the best quality, they provide an opportunity to fully familiarize themselves with the appearance of the novelty.

Recall, the premiere of the new Z4 G29 is scheduled for August 23 as part of the elegance contest in the American town of Pebble Beach. As the images show, the serial model is very similar to the concept that debuted in the same place, but a year earlier. By the way, there is some similarity with the Italian roadster Fiat 124 Spider, but, perhaps, in official pictures the Bavarian will look more solid.

Specifications are not disclosed, but, presumably, under the hood of the BMW Z4 M40i will be installed a row-type six-cylinder engine with a volume of 3.0 liters with a power of 360 hp (500 Nm). In this configuration, you can predict the dynamics at 4.5 seconds – the acceleration time to the first 100 km/h and the traditional 250 km/h, limited by electronics. The equipment of the roadster will include a lowered suspension with adaptive shock absorbers, electronically controlled differential lock, reinforced brakes.

As expected, there will be a less powerful version of the sDrive30i with a petrol turbo four of 2.0 liters. Such a model will be basic and its approximate price is $ 50,000, and sales are expected to start in March 2019. The version with the six-cylinder engine will appear a little later at a price of 65 000 – 70 000 dollars. Both engines will be combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission ZF.

Roadster BMW Z4 previous generation left the assembly line in 2016. The predecessor was equipped with gasoline: two-liter (184 and 245 hp) and three-liter (306 and 340 hp). The sales of the Quartet in 2016 amounted to 3 006 units, of which in the United States – 1,187.
