BMW Z4 M40i gets more power for 2020

BMW has given the range topping M40i variant of the Z4 roadster, a significant power and performance increase, putting the new figures of 285kW and 500Nm in line with it’s stablemates, the BMW M340i xDrive and X3 M40i.

Currently the Z4 has a turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six that produces 250kW and 500Nm – the same power unit shared with the latest Toyota Supra.

The extra 35kW power boost will launch the Z4 from standstill to 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds, which is faster than it’s previous time of 4.5 seconds, and faster than the Toyota Supra that will do it in 4.4 seconds.

In a smart move by BMW Australia, pricing has not changed for the extra power and remains at $124,900 plus on road costs.
