BMW Z4 roadster

By Nauman Farooq

 

Toronto might not have hosted the World premiere of the 2010 BMW Z4 roadster, but the Toronto International Auto Show is this cars Canadian debut.

 

This two-seat roadster will be available in Canada with two engine options, a normally-aspirated 3.0-liter, straight six which produces 255hp (sDrive30i), or a twin-turbo variant of that engine which produces 300hp (sDrive35i).

Both models come with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is only reserved for the sDrive35i model.

 

Despite its performance, the features people will be talking about mostly will be its stunning new appearance and its clever folding hard-top roof, which can be raised or lowered in just 20 seconds.

 

The new Z4 will be in the showrooms by this July, so if you havenʼt been hit too badly by the credit-crunch, you can park one of these on your driveway this summer.
