BMW's Z4 model boasts excellent handling and a lot of power for a small roadster. But the performance-addicted engineers at BMW could not leave well enough alone, so they turned out the sDrive35is, an even more powerful version of the Z4, with standard gear borrowed from the M division.

The Z4 sDrive35is gets the M adaptive suspension and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the former allowing for a compliant ride in everyday driving and excellent handling in the turns. The dual-clutch transmission makes for lightning fast shifts.
