The Z4 offers the pure driving pleasure

Of course, the latter get the all-round simpler car. That’s not meant negatively. Here you actually get the pure driving pleasure. Despite the amazingly comfortable suspension and flexible wheel control. Seating position flat on the ground, buttocks almost over the rear axle, the view goes beyond the long hood – with the Z, performance is almost secondary. Because the car already feels fast in a residential area. In addition, the front end can be maneuvered surprisingly easily, you can feel a sticky force between the rear wheels and the asphalt engine growls a bit randomly, but feels lively despite being moderately charged via a twin scroll charger.

Crisp roadster: In the Z4 you almost sit on the rear axle, the front end can be maneuvered surprisingly easily around corners.

The industrious driving experience combined with a swirling breeze of fresh air in the interior ultimately copies the original roadster driving experience with the utmost precision. In short: the Z4 is the true so-called driving machine. The most beautiful sunny day can come to an end in this bolide – no matter what the speed at which you head home from St. Peter-Ording, from the banks of the Isar or from Lake Edersee.

The driving performance of the M4 is breathtaking

The M4 is completely different. Competition is the order of the day, and competitive spirit bubbles out of each of its richly woven carbon fibers. He can also face the sun casually and topless, of course. He may also cruise in the direction of the ice cream parlour, logically. But purely genetically, it is difficult for him to walk modestly. Let’s put it this way: His essence lies in the bloodline of the Hulk. The gas pedal is the anger maker.

Four-cylinder, in-line, turbo

190 kW (258 hp) at 5000 rpm

Six-cylinder, in-line, biturbo

375 kW (510 hp) at 6250 rpm

10.2 l/100 km (super plus)

510 hp whisk the convertible driving experience into a thunderous attack towards the horizon. It is also amazing how effortlessly the 650 Newton meters of torque from the biturbo engine snip the M4, which weighs almost two tons, along a country road. Quickly a few numbers at this point: The M4 can sprint in around twelve seconds thanks to launch control, driving assistance set to bite-resistant all-wheel effect and under full charge of turbo pressure. At speed 200! At 280 things, BMW brakes the blue beast electronically.

Spoiled for choice: BMW Z4 and M4 have different characters, but both are great fun in their own way.

Both cars offer a lot of driving pleasure

We tried it once and are still wondering what the greatest aftertaste actually was. The roar of the wind? The shimmering tremor of the huge 20-inch wheels? Or the unexpectedly organic directional stability? Because that’s what you have to say here: the steering would do well to snap back into the middle position. This feeling in the fingertips takes the subconscious with it to other driving disciplines. Brake pedal resistance, suspension, driving stability control, automatic transmission and response of the machine pad a sensitive driver much further away from the road than its little brother ever could.

BMW Z4 meets BMW M4

Nevertheless: The greed of the M4 for fast corners and long straights is not only outstanding in this BMW duel. Other manufacturers can rarely do this better. We sum up: Z4, the gallant turbo hair dryer, in the M4 is the full load of speed freshness, both bring XXL fun.
