For those who love the open road, the wind on your face, and the roar of a finely-tuned engine all wrapped within a body with a European pedigree—the 2019 BMW Z4 First Edition might just be exactly what you need in your life. This roadster bears the brands iconic grilles and a new aggressive frame. The preview unit showcased by the manufacturer sports an eye-catching Frozen Orange paint job. It also comes with splashes of Cerium Grey metallic accents distributed all around.

The Munich, Germany-based company has yet to reveal more intimate details regarding its upcoming open-top two-seater. However, we do know that it will rely on a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine for power. It might not exactly sound impressive on paper, but it’s reportedly close to that of a Porsche Boxster. Information gleaned from insiders boast a modest 0-60 mph sprint time lesser than 4.4 seconds.

With M Performance tuning in the cards, you can look forward to top-notch controls that make for a pleasurable drive along the highway. We could also make out that its 19-inch alloy wheels flaunt a stunning bespoke design. The included infotainment system pumps out beats through a Harman Kardon surround sound setup. Sadly, purists might find it disappointing that the 2019 BMW Z4 First Edition does not offer a variant with a manual transmission.
