BMW Unveils Their Latest Tech-rich Z4 Roadster

It’s here … the new BMW Z4 Roadster, and it doesn’t look too bad either.

BMW unveiled the new BMW Z4 Roadster at Pebble Beach, California this morning with a more aggressive design that takes cues from the 8 Series. Concepts of both cars were shown off last year at Pebble Beach which leads us to believe that BMW really likes to show off roadsters on golf courses.

“Last year we promised concepts, this year we’re delivering production vehicles,” Bernhard Kuhnt, President & CEO BMW of North America said during the event.

Like last year’s concept Z4, the production vehicle is larger than the previous generation Z4 and continues the automaker’s penchant for sharper, more aggressive lines.

The Z4 will be outfitted with all the latest iDrive infotainment features, dual displays and the new BMW Driving Assistant Professional. The new semi-autonomous suite will include the new Traffic Jam Assist that’ll be found on the upcoming X5. When activated the new features include hands-free driving for 30 seconds when traveling under 11 miles per hour and seven seconds at higher speeds, It’ll also have automatic lane changes when the turn signal is engaged.
