BMW has been making convertibles for about as long as the company exists. One good example of a success story is that of the Z4. This convertible with smooth gray lines and a dual grill is what we can easily recognize on this small but powerful coupe. With its introduction in 2002, it was hailed “Design of the Year” by Automobile Magazine. This car was made for the concept of speed and maneuverability, as the 3.0 liter engine suggests. With six inline cylinders it produces an impressive 231 bhp.
What the Z4 stresses the most is performance expressed in sheer power. It comes in both a sixspeed manual gearbox and sixspeed automatic transmission. Most drivers find the latter a bit slow and unwieldy in changing gears. What helps is that the car comes with flippers on the rear side of the steering wheel. Nonetheless the car produces 315 Nm at just 2700 rpm.
But even though performance plays a big role, comfort is also available in the Z4 series. One feature that enhances comfort is the adaptable suspension, which registers road conditions
to adjust handling parameters accordingly. Also helpful is the leather interior and GPS
systems that come packaged with the car.
