“…the new BMW Z4 is geared consistently towards agility and driving dynamics.”Jos van As, Head of Application Suspension
“The vehicle concept of the new BMW Z4 is geared consistently towards agility and driving dynamics,” said Jos van As, Head of Application Suspension. “The high level of body stiffness and the very rigid suspension attachment provide the perfect basis for a set-up that guarantees the performance qualities of a genuine sports car in terms of steering precision as well as longitudinal and transverse acceleration.”
BMW are focusing on fine-tuning of all drive and suspension systems of the Z4 using a heavily disguised prototype at the Autodrome de Miramas. The highest performance model of the new range will be the Z4 M40i. It will have an in-line 6-cylinder engine, lowered sports suspension with electronically controlled dampers, newly developed front axle, M light alloy wheels, M sports braking system and an electronically controlled lock in the rear axle differential.
