East Bay BMW in Pleasanton invites you to test-drive the much-acclaimed 2006 the Z4 Roadster.

The 2006 BMW Z4 Roadster enthralls with its fascinating, sporting dynamism created by a perfect synthesis of a high-performance power unit, the outstanding chassis and suspension, and innovative features all round. And added to it is the wonderful design of the BMW Z4 Roadster which makes the car absolutely unique, desirable and a genuine must-have.

Four years after its world debut, the BMW Z4 Roadster is making a new, brilliant appearance with new engines. The new 3.0-litre straight-six in the BMW Z4 Roadster 3.0si is currently the most innovative engine in its class, setting the standard in motoring refinement and dynamic performance. Further strengths are the engine's high output per liter, a very good power-to-weight ratio, and the lowest specific fuel consumption. Maximum output is 265 bhp at 6,600 rpm, maximum engine speed is 7,000 rpm, and the engine maintains its peak torque of 232 lb-ft maintained consistently from 2,500-4,000 rpm. Complying, last but not least, with both the EU4 and ULEV II standards, this outstanding power unit is also a role model from the perspective of the environment.

Superior power and low weight invokes superior performance and efficiency: The Z4 Roadster 3.0si accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, acceleration from 50-75 mph in fourth gear comes in 5.5 seconds.

All new BMW Z4 Roadsters come with a six-speed manual gearbox. This ensures short and crisp gearshift travel, superior running smoothness and precise guidance of the gearshift lever in the middle, with shift forces remaining smooth and consistent at all times. With the six gears coming close together with only small increments in between, and with the large gap between the lowest and highest gear, the driver is always able to choose the ideal gear ratio quickly and smoothly even when driving fast and dynamically.

All of BMW's new Z4 Roadsters come with an extremely compact folding roof where the front, rigid section moves down on top of the fabric roof like a cover and locks in position flush with the body of the car. The roof is easy to open and close with one hand; the heated rear window is made of scratch-proof mineral glass.

A fully automatic, electrically operated roof is naturally available as an option and comes as standard on the Z4 M Roadster, also opening and closing from outside by remote control.
