The 2019 BMW Z4 M40i First Edition gives some much-needed aggression to the long-serving roadster.
The First Edition comes with standard 19-inch light alloy wheels.
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.
The M40i First Edition packs a turbo inline-six.
With a profile like this, it's almost enough to make us ask, "What Supra?"
50/50 weight distribution means that this Z4 should be plenty of fun on a crooked road.
The base Z4 30i will arrive at dealers in spring of 2019, with hotter versions like the First Edition coming in the second quarter of the year.
