Default 2019 BMW Z4 revealed

We've waited a long time to see the final production version of the BMW Z4, which made its debut as a concept at last year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Now the wait is over, as the Z4 has reemerged at the same event a year later in First Edition guise.
Introducing the new roadster line, the 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition has a striking design. It doesn't feature the same gravity-defying beauty as the concept, but the production-spec Z4 keeps the most important design details intact. Like the concept, it features a low center of gravity, a long clamshell hood, side gills, and bold body lines across the doors, as well as a rear lip spoiler, rounded back end, and narrow taillights. The roadster has a mesh grille design and lower vents that are much tamer than those on the concept.

BMW says the First Edition model has unique accoutrements. The model receives a Frozen Orange Metallic paint color, 19-inch alloy wheels in a two-tone design, and black mirror caps. The 2019 Z4 First Edition will also include a head-up display, adaptive LED headlights, two high-resolution digital displays, and a Harman Kardon surround sound system.

Powering the roadster is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine. BMW hasn't finalized output for the production model, but a prototype we drove recently made 382 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. That's up considerably from the 335 hp and 332 lb-ft produced by the old Z4 sDrive35is. BMW estimates the new Z4 M40i roadster can hit 60 mph in under 4.4 seconds. In addition to a powerful engine, the model also benefits from an M-tuned sport suspension.

I like the design. At first glance, it is reminiscent of something I would expect from Mercedes, though.

I should've known Shmee would have a video with this car already. After seeing an actual walkaround and closer shots, I'm much more of a fan now. Also I need that digital display in my life.

All the smaller BMWs and the 6 series look great these days. This included, but Benz was also the first thing I thought.
