From the moment of its Australian introduction in 2003, the BMW Z4 Roadster set a new benchmark for premium two-seat sports cars with its blend of aggressive, avant garde styling, perfectly balanced front to rear weight distribution and front engine, rear-wheel drive configuration.
With muscular performance derived from inline six-cylinder BMW engines in either 2.5-litre or 3.0-litre capacity, the Z4 earned its sports car stripes through a combination of advanced BMW electronic systems and a sophisticated, light weight suspension system that provided an unparalleled, eagerly athletic driving experience.
The Z4 Roadster was followed in September 2006 by the Z4 Coupé that provided the same dynamic balance, but offered a snug, solid-roofed interior and a generous hatchback configuration to address the requirements of a new group of customers.
And now, Z4 buyers have the opportunity to experience BMW sports car driving at a new level with the introduction of two limited-edition models; the Z4 Edition Exclusive and Z4 Edition Sport. Both are available for no extra cost in 2.5si and 3.0si Z4 Roadster models, or the Z4 3.0si Coupé.
The limited edition models add significant extra equipment at the same price as regular Z4 2.5si and 3.0si models, enhancing the appeal of ownership via carefully selected colour and trim combinations as well as, in the Edition Sport, M Sport seats and an M Steering wheel.
The two specific versions are equipped with additional features according to their designation.
The Edition Exclusive comes with BMW Individual upholstery in full soft Nappa leather in combinations including Champagne / Black, Caramel / Black, Amarone / Black and Syrah Blue / Black. Inside, a choice of BMW Individual leather or BMW Individual Piano finish trim strips is available, as well as standard floor mats with Individual leather binding. The exterior colour palette for the Edition Exclusive includes Titanium Silver, Stratus Grey, Black Sapphire, Monaco Blue and a new addition - Space Grey.
The Edition Sport offers the choice of BMW Individual Bi-colour New England leather covering the M sport seats as well as Individual Bi-colour interior trim in combinations including Estoril Blue Dark / Anthracite / Black, Phoenix Yellow / Anthracite / Black, Silverstone / Anthracite / Black and Imola Red / Anthracite / Black.On the inside the Edition Sport comes with BMW Individual leather interior trim finishers, M sport seats and an M leather steering wheel. For the exterior, the Edition Sport offers a choice between Titanium Silver, Black Sapphire, Montego Blue, Space Grey and the previously unreleased Carbon Black.
With exclusive BMW Individual leather upholstery, BMW Individual trim and standard metallic paint, all at no extra cost, the new Edition Exclusive and Edition Sport limited edition models are an opportunity for Z4 buyers to stamp their individuality on a premium sports car that has been an outstanding success for BMW in Australia.
