The BMW Z4 (E89) is the second generation of the BMW Z4 range of two-door roadsters, and was produced from 2009 to 2016. The E89 replaced the E85/E86 Z4 and is the fourth model in the BMW Z Series.
The Z4 sDrive35is is only available with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) in the M Sport trim, and uses an upgraded version of the N54 engine shared with the 1 Series M Coupé. The engine has a computer-controlled overboost function for 3rd to 7th gears. The boost function activates after each gear change with full throttle, and lasts for 7 seconds between 1,500 and 4,500rpm. Peak torque during overboost is 500 N⋅m (369 lb⋅ft), compared to 450 N⋅m (332 lb⋅ft) without overboost.
The BMW Z4 appears as a low Class D car with the following rank statistics:
The BMW Z4 performs similar to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, featuring overall mediocre stats. However, the Lancer has better nitro efficiency and is easier to star up, therefore being a better car for beginners.
The Z4 is not particularly useful in events or multiplayer, as the much better Chevrolet Camaro LT can beat it on any track.
