Prices! Better Z4s, M roadster

2006-03-20 10:21

M version of Z4 here in October

When the face-lifted Z4 arrives here in June, BMW will ad an entry-level 2-litre model to the line-up. The existing 2.5 and 3-litre derivatives is getting a power boost two.

However the real hot news is that the Z4 M is coming too but that will only be launched at Auto Africa in October.

This sizzling Z4's straight-six M3 engine rockets the two-seater from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
