The Z4 was launched earlier in South Africa along with the 8 Series at the end of March this year. 

Hard at work in the BMW Z4 M40i is a 3.0-litre straight-six unit featuring M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine sends power to the road through the latest-generation eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. 

The 250kW engine generates peak torque of 500Nm and propels the roadster from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds. 

The BMW Z4 M40i is upholstered in leather and Alcantara interior. A storage space behind the seats, cupholders under the centre armrest cover (which folds open in two sections with a longitudinal split) and large door pockets add further practical features. 

Boot capacity is 281 litres whether the soft-top is open or closed – an increase of more than 50% compared to the outgoing model.
