5 POWERFUL FACTS:
Numerous details inspired by motorsport set powerful accents and provide an exceptional measure of dynamics and agility. Clearly visible in the standard M aerodynamics package with M specific front and rear aprons.
UNFOLDS GREAT PERFORMANCE.
A top athlete conveying pure driving pleasure: The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine features superior power delivery and the striking characteristic M engine sound. With Double-VANOS, Valvetronic, High-Precision Injection and a TwinScroll turbocharger, it provides excellent output. The 3.0-litre, 250 kW (340 hp) unit develops peak torque of 500 Nm and powers the BMW Z4 M40i from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
500 Nm of torque is developed by the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine of the BMW Z4 M40i.
Adaptive M suspension.
The 10 millimetre lowered Adaptive M suspension can be electrically adjusted at any time to suit the road and driving conditions. Drivers can also adjust the suspension characteristics via the Driving Experience Control to enable their preferred driving style at the time – from comfortable to extremely athletic with markedly agile handling.
M Sport brake.
The M Sport brake has four-piston fixed callipers at the front and single-piston floating callipers at the rear in blue with the M designation and features large brake discs to ensure an outstanding braking performance.
8-speed M Steptronic sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using the selector lever or gearshift paddles – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT PLUS mode and with the selector lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the maximum performance.
M Sport differential.
The M sport differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
Variable sport steering.
The variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and ensures that less physical effort is required to turn the wheel. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel with varying steering ratios. This improves handling when driving more dynamically and reduces the effort needed to steer when parking and turning.
