Uncompromised driving dynamics: the BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder petrol engines in the BMW Z4 offer an enormous amount of strength, paired with comfortable running smoothness and impressive efficiency.
The BMW TwinPower Turbo engine in the BMW Z4 sDrive35i with two turbochargers, double-Vanos and petrol direct injection. The intelligent technology package enables dazzling performance values with simultaneously lower consumption: 225 kW (306 hp) and maximum torque of 400 Nm propel the BMW Z4 Roadster powerfully ahead. Combined with the seven-speed Sport automatic double-clutch transmission, this allows the vehicle to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds – with an average fuel effiiciency of 10.37 km/l and CO2 emissions of 229.14 g/km.

SEVEN-SPEED SPORT AUTOMATIC DOUBLE-CLUTCH TRANSMISSION.

Seven gears, two clutches and uninterrupted acceleration. The seven-speed Sport automatic transmission of the BMW Z4 Roadster powers you forward without interruption. Two clutches switch between the two drive trains in milliseconds, without the slightest jolt and without interrupting the traction.

  • Double-clutch transmission

    Power alone does not determines the dynamic experience of driving – the available force also has to be applied effectively to the road. The seven-speed Sport automatic double-clutch transmission does not waste a single millisecond of power. Even and uneven gears are distributed on two power trains, each with its own clutch. When one gear is disengaged, the next is already engaged. This minimises shift times but maximises precision. No jolting, no interruption in traction.

  • Gearshift paddles

    Thanks to the gearshift paddles, you can also keep your hands on the wheel during manual changes. And if you prefer to avoid shifting all together, the seven-speed Sport automatic transmission lets you stay in the right gear and save petrol as a result. It allows you to enjoy impressive driving dynamics with low fuel consumption and acceleration figures approaching sports car level.

SPORTS MODE.

SPORTS MODE.

A question of the setting. With the Driving Experience Control set to Sports mode, the engine and driving dynamics of your BMW Z4 Roadster react even more directly, allowing you an enhanced sports driving style.
Sports mode is activated using the Driving Experience Control fitted as standard in the central console. Through a predefined setup and according to the equipment selected, it results in a considerably sportier adjustment of the drive and suspension – compared with the standard settings. The engine responds more spontaneously. In combination with the automatic transmission, shift points have considerably more sporting character.
