2009 BMW Z4

Toronto, Ontario – BMW debuted its new Z4 sports car in Toronto on Wednesday, the first BMW roadster equipped with a retractable hardtop. The Z4’s two-piece hardtop fully retracts electrohydraulically within 20 seconds. The new Z4 is slightly larger than its predecessor, offering more comfort in terms of passenger and luggage space. It will be available in Canada this Spring as the Z4 sDrive30i and the Z4 sDrive35i.

The BMW Z4 sDrive30i comes equipped with an inline 225-hp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine. This roadster accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. The BMW Z4 sDrive35i has BMW’s twin-turbocharged 300-hp 3.5-litre inline six-cylinder engine. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is 5.3 seconds.

Pricing was not announced.
