The new Z4 ditches the previous model's power folding hardtop for a lighter, simpler power soft top.

The First Edition Z4 also comes with a bevy of performance upgrades, including bigger brakes and an electronic differential.

This may be the first BMW Z to be at home on a track since the Z4 M of the early 2000s.
