BMW Unveils Z4-Based M-Roadster

http://www.speedtv.com/articles/newm...omotive/20375/



Quote:
After a four-year hiatus since the demise of the original Z3-based M Roadster, BMW has finally readied its much-awaited successor, based on the Z4 introduced back in 2003.

Powered by the current M3’s in-line six delivering 340 horsepower - the next generation of the 3-Series-based sports car will be motivated by a 400-hp V8 - the new M Roadster will make its official debut at the Detroit Motor Show in January. The 3.2-liter mill is good to propel the lighter (in comparison to the M3) Roadster from 0 to 62mph in five seconds flat. Also M3-sourced is the Roadster’s 6-speed manual transmission

Visual changes aren’t radical, being limited to the de rigueur bigger wheels and tires, revised “sporty” front an rear fascias and quad tailpipes on the back. Overall ride height has been lowered by 10mm.

Pricing information has not been released, but with sights set squarely on Porsche’s Boxster S, the latest member of the M family should start close to the $60k mark on the American market.

The new BMW Z4 M Roadster.

More than any other sports car in the world, this unique car embodies the typical roadster: The BMW Z4 Roadster thrills the car world through its fascinating, sporting dynamism created by a perfect synthesis of a high-performance power unit, the outstanding chassis and suspension, and innovative features all round. And not least it is the wonderful design of the BMW Z4 Roadster which makes this car so unique, desirable and a genuine must-have. And now, four years after its world debut, the BMW Z4 Roadster is making a new, brilliant appearance with new engines.

Marking another highlight on the same occasion, the only purist high-performance roadster in the world is making its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show in Detroit in January 2006: The upcoming BMW Z4 M Roadster is the high-performance ultra-sports version of the Z4 Roadster so many customers have been waiting for. Extending BMW's roadster family right at the top, this unique car takes up and continues the brand's tradition in a seg¬ment originally created by BMW M in the first place: Back in 1997, the BMW Z3 M Roadster marked the world's first high-performance production roadster, with more than 15,000 units being sold to customers by the year 2002, making the Z3 M Roadster the best seller in its class and the absolute leader in dynamic performance, agility, and sportiness.

Yup. I'd probably rock the S2000 over the Z4-M. There's not much else I'd want over a Z4-M Coupe.
