The exterior also features twin circular headlights with the broad BMW kidney grille to form a specific interpretation of BMW's signature front-end look. The standard bi-xenon headlights(with LED light rings) of the roadster have a slim design and they extend in to the front wheel arches.

A total of 11 external paint finishes are available for the new BMW Z4, including the new Mineral Grey metallic and Glacier Silver metallic. Another visually stunning option, Valencia Orange metallic, is also a new addition and can only be ordered together with the Design Pure Traction option or Design Pure Traction in combination with the M Sport package.

The interior features an energy-charged contrast of black and orange. The bespoke Alcantara door panel trim, like the lower section of the instrument panel, comes in orange. The black leather seats have contrast stitching in Valencia Orange and an accent stripe running down the central section of the backrests and seat cushions. This stripe is likewise orange and is flanked by two thin white lines. The door panel trim and lower section of the instrument panel can also be specified in black as an option. New interior additions to standard specification include high-gloss black surrounds for the central air vents and the iDrive control system’s folding Control Display, which comes as part of the standard Navigation system Professional.

The BMW Z4 will be available with three-strong line-up of petrol engines from launch, and customers will be able to choose from two four-cylinder and one six-cylinder engines. Their most important shared feature is BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which ensures an exceptionally effective balance between driving pleasure and fuel consumption throughout the output range. All variants of the new BMW Z4 already meet the stipulations of the EU6 exhaust emissions standard due to come into force in 2014.

Drivers can use the standard-fitted Driving Experience Control switch to select a configuration to suit the situation at hand and satisfy personal preferences. COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes can all be activated using the rocker switch on the centre console. As well as adjusting the responses of the engine and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) stability system, the different modes also alter the shift characteristics of the automatic gearbox, the responses of the Servotronic function and the mapping of the electronically controlled dampers, if these items are specified.

The new BMW Z4 will also feature a standard Professional navigation system which enables high-resolution map graphics – complete with 3D view – on the 8.8-inch iDrive monitor. The navigation data for the system is stored on an in-car hard disk, which also provides 12 GB of capacity for personal music collections. The BMW Z4 sDrive20i comes standard with the Hi-fi loudspeaker system with 11 loudspeakers while the BMW Z4 sDrive28i and BMW Z4 sDrive35is comes with the Hi-Fi Professional system with 14 loudspeakers.

The BMW Z4 Roadster will be available for viewing at Performance Motors Limited, 303 Alexandra Road, from 22 June 2013.
