BMW Z4

BMW has seldom delved into the two-door, two-seat drop-top space, but the Z4 has served the German company well since its worldwide debut in 2003.

The first generation Z4 sold until 2007, and featured a variety of in-line six cylinder engines that culminated in the the Z4M Roadster and Coupe models, which to this day remain special M variants for the savvy collector.

The second generation Z4 was less successful and offered more turbo power but not much pizzazz. This, however, is set to change with the impending launch of the third gen Z4, co-developed on an all-new rear-drive platform with Toyota. The range currently starts from the Z Models Z4 Sdrive 20I M Sport at $84,900 and goes up to the Z Models Z4 M40I offered at $127,900.

BMW Z4 Interior

As you'd expect of a two-seater convertible, the interior of the BMW Z4 is sporty, rather than luxury-focused. You get a "paint by numbers" approach to the dashboard design, very typical of BMW models, and there's leather trim on the seats, too. Check the images to see if you can spot the storage shortcomings of the cabin... you'd expect plenty for such a compact space, right?
