A two-seater for all seasons

At first glance, the latest Z4 certainly resembles its predecessor, but the silhouette is deceptive. The new BMW Z4 is a lower slung, broader based version with a strikingly long bonnet. For the first time, the passengers have the benefit of a metal folding roof to protect them from the vagaries of the weather all year round. This 306bhp roadster from the white-and-blue stable is a real head-turner and is due to arrive in the showrooms some time during 2010.
