2013 NAIAS: BMW Z4 Facelift in Valencia Orange – BMW BLOG
New for 2014, BMW updates the Z4 with host of subtle enhancements to already stunning car. New headlights now feature LED rings in a new stunning 3 dimensional design topped off with LED accent lights. New side turn indicators enhance the already flowing style of the side of the car. Striking new paint finishes are now available like Valencia Orange and will include a Hyper Orange Design package that includes orange contrast stitching on black leather seats .
The current Z4 debut’d in 2009 and thankfully the Z4 sDrive 35is retains the N54 producing a prodigious 335hp and 332 lb-ft of torque mated to a 7 speed DCT. 0-60 is just a mere 4.8 seconds away. Yes, that is the same N54 in-line six that was in the short lived, but seriously fast 2011 1 Series M Coupe.
The Z4’s classic good looks are highlighted by its long hood ala Z8 style, and pushed back drivers seat, so far that you are sitting over the just in front of the rear axle. The same engine and transmission choices remain unchanged. Aside from some rather significantly different colors available, it’s going to take a true BMW’phile to notice the subtle yet elegant updates to the E89.
