PASSION: it’s what makes life worth living. Without it, an automobile like the new BMW Z could not exist. As a true roadster, it embodies

this unique feeling in each detail and line of its body. If you want to express your personal passion even more clearly, you can choose the

Design Pure Traction equipment package. This transforms the classic sporting personality of the new BMW Z into an athletic character

that adds a very special quality to the car’s typical roadster feeling: individuality.




While we use our heads to make important judgement calls, the most

beautiful decisions are made by our hearts. Choosing the new BMW Z

is an excellent example. The efficiency of its engines is a convincing

rational argument – but one look at its irresistible lines is enough to

awaken roadster love in the heart of the observer.

So join us for a day of spirited driving on Italy’s twisting roads to find

out which version of the new BMW Z makes your heart beat faster.

Whether it’s as a classic roadster in elegant Mineral Grey metallic or as

DECISIVENESS: is what makes things move – and it’s easy to see that the new BMW Z

has it in spades. The redesigned headlights with corona rings and LED accent lights immediately

make your heart beat faster. They lend the front its distinctive appeal and make it absolutely clear

that this vehicle was built to excite. Only BMW knows how to build roadsters like this.

06 07 Design



FASCINATION: can be expressed in many ways – the

contemporary design language of the new BMW Z is just one of

them. It reflects the harmonious interplay of sportiness and elegance.

From the upright kidney grille to the dynamic side creases with the

redesigned, integrated indicators to the powerful rear wheel arches –

every shape contributes to the car’s imposing overall appearance.

In addition, the seat position just in front of the rear axle is ideal for

perfect road feedback. All of this explains why the new BMW Z

leaves such a positive impression on drivers – and all those who

turn their heads to get a second look before it is out of sight.



TRUST: is the basic prerequisite for a close relationship with the road – and the true roadster spirit. With the new BMW Z, BMW

engineers have demonstrated once more how to become one with the road. The aluminium front suspension makes a key contribution here –

it reduces front axle weight in aid of an ideal / weight distribution, ensuring precise and agile handling all the way up to the car’s limits.

But when it comes to exploring the physical limits of driving, the handling of the new BMW HP motorcycle is no less impressive. As in the

new BMW Z, top-quality materials and innovative technology such as Dynamic Damper Control (DDC) and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC)

as well as Race ABS ensure maximum traction and safety. Despite its enormous power, the new hp BMW HP delivers outstanding

control combined with exceptional agility and dynamic behaviour on both road and track.

In a BMW, it makes no difference whether two or four wheels touch the tarmac – they’re always doing it for love.





VERVE: is something that comes naturally in the new

BMW Z. Its aluminium front axle saves a signifi cant amount

of weight, ensuring a balanced front–rear weight distribution.

The BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine in the

new BMW Z sDrivei puts this advantage to good use. In

concert with the optional eight-speed automatic transmission it

creates a peerless and breathtaking driving experience: the

engine’s kW (hp) of power deliver an immediate punch

as soon as you put your foot to the pedal, accelerating the car

from to km/h in just . seconds. It’s one time your head

and your heart will be in happy agreement: because at just .

litres per kilometres, the car’s fuel efficiency is equally

14 15 Driving dynamics



EXUBERANCE: comes naturally in the BMW Z – all you need to do is get in. It doesn’t matter how

fast you want to go, the optional sport seats for the driver and passenger offer outstanding lateral support for

spirited driving. SunRefl ective Technology ensures that the leather upholstery heats up very little even in

direct sunshine, enabling you to enjoy open-top driving to the full. Beautiful craftsmanship and premium

materials like fi ne wood and high-gloss trim elements create an exclusive ambience in the interior – making

every drive in the new BMW Z a journey of discovery for all the senses.

16 17 Interior


INDEPENDENCE: means freedom. In the new BMW Z, it also

means a plethora of innovative functions. BMW ConnectedDrive provides

optimal convenience, infotainment and safety. For example with a wide

range of BMW apps: keep in touch with everyone via Facebook or Twitter

and share your most beautiful moments with your friends. In addition, the

free AUPEO! personal internet radio app ensures that each drive will be

accompanied by your own personal soundtrack. Freedom of choice is at the

heart of this service: you pick your own musical preferences from a library of

genres and around million songs. The result is that the new BMW Z

makes it even easier to escape the daily routine – without having to

compromise on comfort.



DESIRE: is awakened as something casts a spell over us. One place that has this power

of attraction is the cockpit of the new BMW Z equipped with the Design Pure Traction package.

It combines spirited design with perfect ergonomics. The asymmetrical centre console faces the

driver, as does the instrument panel, whose round controls hark back to the legendary BMW Z.

Features unique to Design Pure Traction include the premium Alcantara/leather combination

and decorative stitching in distinctive Orange, which make for a strikingly sporty ambience –

and provide an unforgettable caress to the fi ngertips with every touch.

22 23 Design Pure Traction


EUPHORIA: is like a spark that sets our feelings alight. One

look at the Valencia Orange metallic paint fi nish, exclusively available for

the Design Pure Traction package, combined with the BMW Individual

hardtop in contrasting non-metallic Black, immediately makes the

adrenaline level rise. It emphasises the distinctive sporty character of

the new BMW Z, turning it into an even more consummate athlete.

This impression remains unchanged even with the roof up, because

the aluminium hardtop’s lines harmonise perfectly with the design of

the body, just like the top does not compromise the roadster’s typically

slim rear when retracted. One press of a button is enough to start the fully

automatic closing process, which takes around seconds to complete

and can be initiated at speeds of up to km/h. Opening the roof again

takes seconds. Whether the hardtop is up or down isn’t a question of

style, but simply a response to the needs of the moment.



POWER: implies having the confidence to master any challenge. The new BMW Z makes an extravagant statement

in any situation – providing a fi rst indication of its superiority. The optional Adaptive Suspension enables it to transmit its full

power to the road, taking dynamic ability to a new level without ever compromising comfort. For a lower centre of gravity and

higher cornering speeds, ride height is lowered by ten millimetres. Sensors capture all relevant acceleration data and perform

automatic adjustments of damping parameters within hundredths of a second. And with Driving Experience Control, you

can always make sure that the strengths of the new BMW Z are deployed to maximum effect.

26 27 Design Pure Traction



ECSTASY: proves that passion can always be taken to

another level. The BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line

petrol engine in the new BMW Z sDriveis proves it, too: up

to Nm of torque – with a short-term Nm peak torque

thanks to an overboost function – and kW (hp) of power

catapult the roadster from to km/h in just . seconds. As it

does so, you’ll fi nd your heartbeat accelerating at the same rate.

Every gear change is executed within fractions of a second by its

standard seven-speed automatic transmission with double clutch,

with almost no gaps in power delivery – unleashing pure intensity.

And instantly making one thing clear: that your heart is in charge

30 31 Interview

Udo Mark is the head of Customer Sports

at BMW Motorsport. In this interview,

he talks about the BMW Z GT.

Hardly a weekend goes by without a BMW

race car driver winning a motor race somewhere

in the world. This does not just apply to the

BMW Motorsport drivers participating in the

DTM or the American Le Mans series; private

teams use our race cars to participate in all

kinds of championships around the globe.

Leading the BMW Motorsport fi eld is the


Sportiness is part of the heritage of every

BMW. Is this why BMW automobiles are

so uniquely suited for the racetrack

Of course. Every BMW is sporty by nature.

This is a good basis for motorsport success.

We at BMW Motorsport build on this basis to

develop race cars that have the potential to

earn victories across the world.

The BMW Z GT is your most successful

model. Where do you use it

The BMW Z GT has proven a true winner

in the hotly contested GT class, in which

almost all the big-name manufacturers are

represented with special models. Whether it

is a -hour endurance race or a prestigious

series such as the FIA GT Championship,

with the BMW Z GT, we will be a top

competitor in any race.

What makes the BMW Z GT so special

The elongated bonnet, long wheelbase and

short overhangs combine to lend the volume

version of the BMW Z its unmistakeable

appearance. One difference between the volume

model and the race car is hidden under the

bonnet: while the road version of the BMW Z is

powered by either a six-cylinder or a four-cylinder

engine, the motorsport version is fi tted with a

.-litre eight-cylinder powerplant by BMW M.

In addition, there are modifications in the chassis,

brakes, and aerodynamics features. One key

characteristic of a race car is its versatility.

Different teams from around the globe must

be able to quickly adapt the BMW Z GT to

the needs of each racetrack and their drivers.

Which other BMW cars are part of the

BMW Motorsport range

Our teams have also been very successful

with the BMW TC in the World Touring

Car Championship. And the BMW M GT

remains our motorsport entry-level model.

You are also supporting privateer BMW

race drivers with the BMW Sports Trophy.

Could you tell us more about this award

We really value privateer drivers, for their strong

performances and racing success. This is

why we award trophies to the most successful

among them. And this year, in addition to

€, in prizes, we have a special treat: a

test drive in the BMW M DTM.

What did you think was the highlight of

the motor racing season

Of course we followed the comeback season of

our colleagues in the DTM with great interest.

The phenomenal success of BMW Motorsport

after their return to the DTM is fantastic. But

we also had some resounding successes with

the BMW Z GT. One absolute highlight was

Uwe Alzen’s record lap in the qualifying at

this year’s Nürburgring -hour race. We

also celebrated other victories, nearly every

weekend. was a truly outstanding year

for BMW Motorsport.

BMW EfficientDynamics

Less emissions. More driving pleasure.

BMW was one of the fi rst manufacturers to pursue the goal of effi cient drive technologies, as part of a

multi-award-winning sustainability strategy. BMW Effi cientDynamics represents an acclaimed standard

package of innovative technologies that reduce fuel consumption and emissions, while simultaneously

enhancing dynamic performance. It has enabled the BMW Group to lower the CO

emissions of its

European new-vehicle fl eet by more than per cent since . BMW models currently emit g

of CO

or less per km, and models do not exceed g of CO

per km. The BMW Group intends to

achieve a further per cent reduction in CO

emissions by .



Different paths to the same destination: unmistakable BMW driving pleasure. Under the umbrella of the BMW Effi cientDynamics project, BMW is

continuously developing innovative systems that will bring us closer to the goal of emissions-free mobility in the long term. This BMW programme

for more driving pleasure is based on several pillars:

Technology package. The optimisation of vehicles powered by conventional diesel and petrol engines continues apace. A comprehensive

technology package enables the reduction of fuel consumption and emissions, while at the same time increasing power output and driving

enjoyment. These advances are based on innovations such as BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, Brake Energy Regeneration, air vent control,

and many others.

BMW ActiveHybrid. With the BMW ActiveHybrid , BMW ActiveHybrid and BMW ActiveHybrid , BMW has impressive hybrid volume models

in its range. All of these models combine outstanding effi ciency with superlative dynamic ability, thanks to intelligent energy management.

BMW ActiveE. Since , there has been a new form of dynamism on the roads: the all-electric BMW ActiveE. It is manufactured in a small

production run, as part of a pilot project. In this way, BMW is preparing the way for the emissions-free mobility of the future, with a promise:

% emissions and % driving enjoyment.

BMW Hydrogen. BMW sees hydrogen as a long-term option for emission-free mobility. BMW has been a pioneer in this fi eld since the s, and

in presented a luxury saloon powered by a hydrogen-fuelled internal combustion engine: the BMW Hydrogen .

BMW i. In line with the BMW Effi cientDynamics idea, the BMW i brand is developing visionary new electric vehicle concepts such as the BMW i

and the BMW i. These vehicles use existing BMW Effi cientDynamics technologies combined with intelligent lightweight design innovations such as

the use of carbon. With its focus on sustainability across the entire value-added chain and a range of supporting mobility services, BMW i is redefi ning

individual mobility.



Auto Start/Stop function. The BMW Z sDrivei, BMW Z sDrivei

and BMW Z sDrivei with six-speed manual gearbox come with the

Auto Start-Stop function. During brief stops, for example at a red light,

this function automatically switches off the engine to save fuel. A “Start-

Stop” symbol in the Info Display indicates that the function is active.

Electric Power Steering. Unlike conventional, hydraulic steering

systems, electric power steering only draws power during actual steering

movements. As long as the steering wheel position remains constant –

for example when driving at speed along the motorway – the electric

motor is inactive.

BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. BMW TwinPower Turbo

combines advanced injection technologies and fully variable power

control for superior effi ciency with innovative turbocharger technology

to enhance dynamic performance.

Lightweight design. Where it makes sense to use lightweight materials,

our engineers use aluminium – for example in the front section and

suspension, as well as for the bonnet and hardtop. The engines too are

made of aluminium, making them the lightest in their class. These weight

savings lower fuel consumption and improve weight distribution – for

enhanced agility, especially in corners.

Optimum Shift Indicator. Shifting gears at the right time is one of the

easiest and most effective ways to save fuel. This is where the Optimum

Shift Indicator used in conjunction with the six-speed manual gearbox

comes in. It shows the driver which gear to change to in order to save fuel.

Brake Energy Regeneration. To supply the battery with electrical

energy, the alternator is driven by the engine, which imposes a constant

overhead on the car’s fuel consumption. Brake Energy Regeneration

means that the alternator generates electricity mainly when the driver

takes his foot off the accelerator or brakes – making productive use of

excess kinetic energy to feed the battery. In this way, electricity is

generated while coasting, without consuming fuel.

Tyres with reduced rolling resistance. When a car is moving, its

tyres constantly change shape. This uses up energy and thus fuel. Tyres

with reduced rolling resistance minimise these changes in shape by

means of an optimised design and the use of special materials in the

tyre’s tread and sides.

36 37 BMW EfficientDynamics



The engines. Power, responsiveness and revving ability characterise every BMW engine. Naturally, all the engines available for the new BMW Z

follow the BMW Effi cientDynamics philosophy, aiming to combine performance with maximum effi ciency, minimising both fuel consumption and


emissions. Whichever of the innovative BMW TwinPower Turbo engines you choose, you can be certain that you will enjoy maximum driving

pleasure combined with superb effi ciency.

The new BMW Z offers a whole host of innovative optional technologies to help you get the most out of each drive. Many of these systems are

intelligently linked with each other. Their interaction ensures that you can enjoy maximum driving pleasure, in maximum safety – on every straight, in

every corner, every second of your drive.

It’s a quality that each and every BMW embodies: pure dynamic ability. The technical foundation of this

exhilarating driving experience is the chassis. It ensures optimum road contact and ideal handling in

every situation. It’s the result of innovative, perfectly matched components and a / front-rear weight

distribution. At the same time, BMW engineers continuously reinvent and refi ne the typical BMW driving

dynamics. Every BMW chassis has the effect of transmitting a passion for sporty driving from the vehicle

to the driver – while also offering maximum safety and comfort.

Adaptive Suspension. This features

electronically controlled dampers that adapt

to both driving style and road conditions. Their

operating characteristics can be adjusted via the

Driving Experience Control button. The optional

Adaptive Suspension (standard in the BMW Z

sDriveis) is also lowered by millimetres,

without any adverse effects on the ride comfort

of the new BMW Z.

Rear-wheel drive. This is the basis of the

hallmark BMW agility and manoeuvrability. At

the same time, this drive confi guration enables

an ideal weight distribution across the entire

chassis. This makes for perfect transmission of

power and traction to the road.

Steering. Torque steer is completely alien to

the new BMW Z. With rear-wheel drive, the

drive wheels are not the ones steering the car,

so the power applied to them can never affect

the steering. The steering is evenly weighted

and does not harden, and steering angles are

small. The result is that you can literally feel

cornering speed and road surface condition.

Driving Experience Control. This enables

an individual adaptation of powertrain and

chassis components, for example the steering,

by selecting either Comfort, Sport or Sport+

mode. The Sport+ model enables very sporty

driving all the way to the car’s limits. For

example by permitting more wheel slip on the

rear wheels – something that you can allow at

any time by pressing the “Traction” button.

Eight-speed sport automatic transmission.

This optional transmission adjusts to your style

of driving – from comfortable cruising to a very

dynamic experience indeed. To change gears,

you can either use the shortened selector lever

or the gearshift paddles on the sport leather

steering wheel. In Sport mode, maximum

performance is guaranteed. The close spacing

of the eight gears optimises acceleration, while

also maximising effi ciency and shift comfort.

Seven-speed sport automatic transmission

with double clutch. In this transmission the

various gears are assigned to two clutches. As

one gear is disengaged, the next one is already

engaged, for even faster gear changes that take

just a few milliseconds – hardly more than the

blink of an eye. With the uninterrupted power

fl ow from the engine you can enjoy breathtaking

acceleration combined with supreme ride comfort

thanks to the almost imperceptible gear changes.

In addition, the fast and precise selection of the

most effi cient gear signifi cantly reduces fuel

consumption in automatic mode.

40 41 Chassis and safety



The new BMW Z features advanced technologies on which you can always rely. Superior driving characteristics and innovative equipment come as

standard in this car. As a driver, you will be supported by state-of-the-art technology able to give you maximum support in any situation, making you

feel safe no matter what condition the roads are in.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), incl. CBC, braking assistant and

additional functions. DSC recognises the risk of skidding from the start

and stabilises the car within milliseconds. Traction Mode (DTC) permits

increased wheel slip in order to maximise propulsion in specific situations

and enable a sportier driving style. In DSC Off mode, an electronic

locking differential improves handling.

Cornering Brake Control (CBC) increases vehicle stability when

braking gently in a fast bend. During braking manoeuvres, the load on

the rear wheels is reduced, which can lead to oversteering (). In brake

manoeuvres that are outside the ABS control range, CBC addresses this

tendency using asymmetric brake pressure control () in order to create

a stabilising counterforce ().

Rollover protection system, includes two steel roll bars behind the

headrests, a very strong body crossmember as well as steel roll bars

integrated in the A-pillars and windscreen header to protect the occupants.

Side impact protection with reinforced crossmembers in the doors

near the seat and backrest and a seat structure specially designed for

safety in the event of an impact increase occupant protection.

Adaptive Headlights with variable light distribution feature

swivelling headlights to ensure optimised road illumination once the

vehicle enters a bend. This enhances safety when driving at night or in

bad visibility. Sensors register the steering angle, yaw rate and vehicle

speed; the direction of the headlight beams is automatically adjusted to

match the calculated layout of the bend.

Driver airbag and passenger airbag protect the head and upper

body from hitting the steering wheel or instrument panel in a frontal

collision. The passenger airbag includes seat occupancy detection. The

side airbags (head/thorax) significantly reduce the risk of injuries to the

head, pelvis and thorax in a lateral collision.

Bumper system with reversible aluminium impact absorbers;

replaceable deformation elements at the front and rear absorb impact

forces at speeds of up to km/h without damage to the car’s body;

energy-absorbing foam in the front bumper allows impacts at up to

km/h to be absorbed without damage.

Runflat tyres feature reinforced side walls allowing them to maintain

their shape and rim position even after loss of pressure. This means that

you can safely reach the nearest garage. The runflat indicator comes

as standard and minimises the risks associated with tyre failures. A lamp

in the instrument panel indicates any drop in tyre pressure. If the pressure

loss is severe, an acoustic warning is triggered.

The BMW Service concept: always up to speed. When you buy a BMW,

you can look forward to superb service and comprehensive customer care, with

a worldwide network of more than , BMW Service partners in more than

countries ready to assist you at any time. The vehicle’s on-board diagnostics

keep you informed of when the car is next due for a check-up and what work

needs to be done: Condition Based Service (CBS) tracks service fl uids and

the condition of essential parts subject to wear. It also monitors the time- and

mileage-linked service requirements of your BMW. Using these measurement

data, the Info Display in the cockpit automatically alerts you in advance whenever

any part of the vehicle requires servicing. The iDrive Control Display contains

exact information on which vehicle components will need to be serviced and

when. In conjunction with BMW TeleServices*, the innovative telematics service

provided by BMW Service, the CBS data are automatically transmitted to your

BMW Service partner. This means that your service consultant has more time for

you, and can provide more comprehensive advice. Your BMW Service partner will

of course have Original BMW Parts available for any work to be done. In short:

quality and safety are our top priorities.



With BMW Service Inclusive*, you’ll

no longer need to worry about the

costs involved in maintaining your

BMW and replacing worn out parts.

This one-off payment covers all kinds

of assistance from BMW Service,

including Original BMW Parts. And it’s

available worldwide at all participating

BMW Service partners. With BMW

different services.

The advantages:

• Total transparency of costs.

Please consult your BMW partner.

With BMW TeleServices*, you are

always in safe hands. This feature

enables your BMW to contact your

BMW Service partner and register

itself for a service appointment. As

soon as the CBS sensors detect a

service requirement, the vehicle will

initiate an automatic

BMW Teleservice call and transmit all

service-related data – data which

previously had to be collected in the

workshop. Your service consultant

will then call you back, in order to

arrange an appointment. As vehicle

information is transferred in advance,

time in the garage can be spent more

effi ciently, so your BMW is back on

the road faster. In the unlikely event of

a breakdown, BMW TeleServices

enables you to transmit diagnostics,

vehicle and location data directly to

BMW breakdown assistance. With

BMW Teleservice Assistance,

malfunctions can often be remedied

remotely, getting you quickly and

easily back on the road. For further
