• 2011 BMW Z4 sDrive20i and sDrive28i

BMW has chosen the British market to launch two new models for the Z4 line-up. The new Z4 sDrive20i and Z4 sDrive28i continue a tradition of over 80 years started by the 3/15 PA Wartburg Roadster back in 1930. It was a memorable car thanks to its setback glasshouse and front engine rear-wheel-drive configuration with the two seats positioned close to the rear axle.

The Z4 sDrive20i is powered by a four-cylinder engine with an output of 184 HP and 199 lb-ft of torque. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of 146 mph. For the sDrive28i, the total output has been increased to 245 HP. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The Z4 sDrive20i will be offered in Space Grey metallic paintwork and will be equipped with 17" light alloy Star-spoke style 290 wheels and is priced at £29,480.00 ($40,172 at the current rates). The sDrive28i gets a Black Sapphire metallic paintwork with 18" Star-spoke style 325M light alloy wheels and is priced at £33,645.00 ($45,848 at the current rates).

This is absolutely the best roadster of BMW! It was oozing with angst in spite of having only a simple style and design, and I would admit that it already looks cool on that body paint.

Well, I hope that its engine is really quite good for this convertible vehicle, so I can truly say that it can’t offer an awesome and complete packaged. Anyway, the other feature of this car is absolutely perfect on it.

I wonder if what will be the other awesome features that it can offer, aside from having a striking hygienic exterior styling. Anyway, I hope either that it could have a nice speed performance.

I just simply love the simplicity of this one and on its decent and hygienic body paint, but I don’t think that the engine of this one, will really give a better performance on it.

This BMW convertible car absolutely looks great on its simple design, and I love the decent body paint that it had. I just only hope that its 245 horsepower is enough, so that it can be performed well.
