BMW Australia has released its new high-performance Z4 Roadster.

Priced from $129,900*, the BMW Z4 sDrive35is sits atop the current Z4 range. Other models in the range including the Z4 sDrive23i, Z4 sDrive30i and Z4 sDrive35i.

The BMW Z4 sDrive35is features a modified straight-six twin turbo engine with high precision injection technology with an output of 250 kW. Accelerating from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, the roadster’s performance time is identical to the six-speed manual BMW M3 Coupé. Peak torque is 450 Newton-metres, increasing briefly to 500 Newton-metres courtesy of an overboost function.

The new model for the Z4 range is fitted with BMW’s seven-speed Double Clutch Transmission which includes a launch control function. The unique M Sport Package features a particularly aggressive looking aerodynamics kit and includes adaptive suspension which lowers the car by 10 millimetres.

An exclusive 18’ Star-Spoke option is also now standard. And unique floormats, embroided with the BMW Z4 sDrive35is model-designation, complete the sporting appeal of the range-topping roadster.

Despite increased performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are identical to that of the 225 kW Z4 sDrive35i, exemplifying the BMW EfficientDynamics ethos of reducing emissions whilst improving performance where practical.

The roadster is also equipped standard with BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as Brake Energy Regeneration and Electric Power Steering.

BMW Group Australia managing director, Stavros Yallouridis, says the new roadster would extend demand for the BMW Z4.

“The Z4 is already recognised as a design icon and a triumph of engineering. Now in the form of the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Australian performance enthusiasts can enjoy the ultimate BMW roadster experience,” he says.

NOTE: * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the various statutory charges.
