The all-new BMW Z4 Roadster made its Australian debut at MIMS this morning showing for the first time its two-piece retractable hard-top guise.

Available with three power plants, the Z4 Roadster is offered with 2.5-litre, 3.0-litre (both normally aspirated) or 3.0-litre twin-turbo charged engines, the latter of which produces 225kW of power and 400Nm of torque to propel the car from 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds.

The retractable roof stows or unfolds in 20 seconds and is made from aluminium to reduce weight – as are the front guards and bonnet.
