>> This is a first for BMW. It's their first Roadster with a retractable top. And it's pretty sleek and as you can see, it's pretty quick. The whole thing takes about 20 seconds from open to close. Also when the top is up, good visibility because they've really worked hard to carve out good-sized windows and glass surfaces all around, so you're not stuck in a cocoon. Also check out the back end over there. Looks kind of like a ZA, doesn't it. That's a nice little styling touch. And some of that continues to the inside as well with its bigger brethren of such limited production lower. Oh, by the way, notice this. That's the new iDrive. Nice interface.

>> Now of course, being a proper BMW Roadster is not just about the looks, there's some good guts here too. The top engine will be that fantastic 3.5-liter inline 6 with the twin turbos -- mwah. We can eat that engine all day, three meals a day, I wouldn't mind. Transmission choices will include a 6-speed manual for the purist of course. Also though, they're sport automatic, 7-speed dual clutch technology. So this guy can become pretty darn impressive and as you can see inside all the usual display-based cabin tech is certainly are gonna be available in this car. You're not roughing it by any stretch.
