"After looking for a while, and not having any particular marque in mind, we have just taken delivery of an Alfasud Ti; our first non British classic car. Bought site unseen from a specialist / collector dealer in North Canterbury, she's a 2 owner 38000kms car that has been comprehensively restored. First impressions have been good, and the experience of dealing with Jesmond and Gloria was a positive one; they provided lots of information and answered any questions, but didn't put any pressure on us to decide."Mark Holman, Wellington, New Zealand
The BMW Z4 Coupe is just so right!
Classic proportions. Small but muscular. Stunning but not showy.
Get inside and the infatuation grows further. The cabin is intimate but with a fantastic view over the long, smooth bonnet. The interior doesn’t have any tricks up its glovebox, it’s just refreshingly uncluttered with an aura of quality that nothing else at this price point can match.
Engine, performance and 0-60 time
There’s no starter button, just twist the key and the lightest volume-production six-cylinder in the world spins into life. It has a familiar 261bhp and 232lb ft, but this is the happiest residence it has found so far. It’s a fantastically precise engine and sounds so honed that any tolerances must be wafer thin. It also feels genuinely quick, and because the engine encourages you to ring every last revolution from it you’re given a sustained push in the back right the way through every gear. Standstill to sixty-two in 5.7sec seems eminently realistic. Sixty-two to standstill would, I’m sure, be equally impressive.
The six-speed ’box won’t take any mollycoddling and needs you to be positive with your changes, so it’s great once you’re attacking a road. The same could be said of the steering, which is weightier than some owners might expect, but has no slack,and comes with the bonus of a Chunky M Spec Steering Wheel.
What's it like to drive?
The Coupe instantly feels a different animal to the roadster: stiffer all round, but with the front feeling much more direct and eager to snuffle out an apex. Unusually for a small BMW, this means that on a bumpy B-road it’s the front rather than the rear that commands your attention, the nose hunting out cambers and imperfections. It’s not enough to slow you down, however, and the more you increase your speed, the more stability the Z4 seems to find.
Traction is huge. There’s no M diff, so you won’t be emerging from corners crossed-up with both rear arches filled with thick white smoke, but the 3.0si is a deeply absorbing partner down a favourite road. It has undoubtedly been engineered for people who want to drive, not just pose.
