Special-edition model launched to celebrate 70 years since BMW's Mille Miglia victory
7 May 2010

BMW has launched a special edition Z4 in Germany to commemorate the 70th anniversary of its Mille Miglia victory.

Just 99 units of the BMW Z4 sDrive 35is Mille Miglia Limited Edition models will be built. The changes to the Mille Miglia model are mainly cosmetic; it gets a blacked-out front grille, an M division aero kit and special 19-inch dark chrome alloys.

Interior changes include Alcantara seats and steering wheel with red stitching. All 99 models also get special Mille Miglia badging.

Power comes from the sDrive 35is's 335bhp turbocharged, straight-six, 3.0-litre engine, mated to a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. It can get from 0-62mph in 4.8sec and reach a top speed of 155mph.

In 1940's Mille Miglia, the BMW 328 Kamm Coupe took first, third, fifth and sixth places. This car has been restored by BMW in time for this year's event.

Our Verdict

BMW Z4
The BMW Z4 has more comfort and added practicality, but has it gone soft?

The BMW Z4 is a fine-looking two-seat roadster with indifferent driving dynamics

No, as I recall reading, this 'restored' 328 Kamm Coupe is brand new, a reproduction from photographs and so on, as the original Kamm no longer exists.

I gather this limited edition also gets it's own colour; a matte version of Polaris Metallic.
