BMW has revealed its long-overdue new Z4, two years after the previous generation ceased production.
The design of the latest in the German carmaker's line of "Z" roadsters has proved somewhat divisive, though.
The anticipation had been building since last year, when the radical lines of the Z4 Concept, below, were presented to the public.
However, the production version of the new Z4 looks slightly more conservative, albeit significantly updating the previous generation.
In the M40i First Edition guise that you see in our gallery above, the drop-top two-seater is pushed along by a 340hp straight-six engine, and it will hit 0-to-100kph in a very creditable 4.6 seconds.
It will go on sale around the world in spring 2019, while further technical details and additional engine variants will be announced next month.
