The car will be based off the 1-series in order to create a very light and fast on its feet roadster which which come exclusivly in a ragtop configuration in order to keep weight down and to distance itself from its older Z4 brother which is moving to a convertable hardtop design.

Ok, you guys be the judge on this one.
This is a new “performance” knob from ACS which introduces the concept of a large red lighted number to tell you which gear you are in.
