It has been a whole year since BMW revealed the concept version of the new Z4 roadster, which is the first update to the model for over seven years. While the car has detected camouflage testing since then, BMW still draws its feet on revealing the final design of the 2019 Z4. It can soon be debut, but as a set of pictures has leaked into a number of BMW enthusiasts, watching the convertible from several angles.
It's easy to see Roadster's latest design, similar to last year's concept, with the overall shape and body lines remaining the same. But like any transition from concept to consumer version, are the most noticeable changes in the details. The 2019 Z4 is a little less sharp than the concept, with the front lights being especially less pointed.
While the leaked images are careful to scrub the background, the Z4 is shown an M40i model. Both the front and rear facets maintain the slim and wide appearance shown on the concept, but aligned just enough to match BMW's current design language. The back also manages to keep the almost razor-thin tail lights, but with a shape closer to the new 8-series.
The images confirm that roadster will have a folding soft top and at least the possibility of slightly shiny black wheels. We have to wait for BMW's official reveal to know more, including a release date, but for now we know that the M40i will be the advanced Z4 model and is expected to come with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with horsepower near 380.
