When the Old meets the New.
The Z3 M-Roadster and the Z4 35is, both are 2-seater, top-down pocket rockets and powered by a straight 6 engine that produces well over 300-horse power.
Horse Power: 321hp
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Engine: 3.2 L Normally Aspirated Straight 6
Horse Power: 340hp
Transmission: 7-speed M-DCT (6-speed manual is an option)
Engine: 3L twin-turbo charged Straight 6
Somehow I always wish the cloth roof could be an option for my Z4. With all the advantages being a hardtop, having a cloth roof is just more ‘roadster’ to me. Plus as a car enthusiast born from the early 90s, I have just about to catch the love of high performance naturally aspirated engines, mated with a proper manual gearbox. This is why when I saw this Z3 M-Roadster the other night. I had a crush on it.
Then I had a quick drive in my crush. Yea. Boy’s dream. It was not disappointing at all. Just as I wish it would be. An Ultimate Driving Machine as BMW said. Every move is urgently connected. If you love driving, and love to be challenged while driving, then the Z3 M-Roadster is a good example for you.
But am I saying the Z4 35is isn’t as ‘ultimate‘ as the Z3 M-Roadster? No. They both are. Just the definition has been changed slightly over the years. At least I would still go home with the Z4 yet not forgetting the drive in my crush, for that one night.
