The swooping design, low road-hugging stance and elegant shape make this one of the most attractive cars in the BMW collection. All of the engines in the range pack a punch and even the entry level 2.0 litre is capable of a powerful performance. The interior is actually very spacious for a car in this class and the low seating position offers considerable headroom. This can be quickly expanded with the superfast convertible roof, which fully retracts in just 10 seconds.
On the road the drive is simply superb, with sharp handling, a well balanced chassis and breath taking acceleration. Although the premium is high investing in one is actually quite a sensible option as a well maintained used BMW Z4 retains its resale value really well.
