BMW Z4 M40i First Edition at Pebble Beach 2018
Thirty years after BMW began production of the Z1, and a year on from the Z4 Concept making its debut in the same place here at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, we’ve finally been given a full reveal of the much-anticipated new BMW roadster. This M40i First Edition trim of the 2019 Z4 comes in a striking color called Frozen Orange Metallic and also features a BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line. The Munich automaker has this time chosen to go with an anthracite fabric roof instead of one of its cool but heavy and expensive folding metal systems, but the fabric top does have a “silver effect” and can be stowed away in as little as 10 seconds. Other highlights of this First Edition model are adaptive LED headlights, black mirror caps, and two-tone, double-spoke 19-inch wheels. The world premiere of the new Z4 sees it being shown on the Reviewing Stand of the world-renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where on Sunday BMW will be hoping it’s named as the most outstanding automobile on display so it can be presented with the prestigious Best in Show trophy. Inside this particular model is a black leather interior featuring contrast stitching, power adjustable seats, a head-up display, a premium Harman Kardon surround sound audio system, and BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two digital screens.
