BMW Z4: six-speed transmission

Change gears faster.

The six-speed transmission in the BMW Z4 Roadster.

You’re approaching the end of the curve and the road stretches out in front of you: a gentle nudge of the accelerator is enough to get the Z4 Roadster dashing straight down it. Moving the gear lever just 45 millimetres changes the gear instantly and precisely and you continue to gain speed. The manual six-speed transmission, fitted as standard in the BMW Z4 Roadster, allows extremely rapid gear changes with short throws. Paired with a high-torque engine this provides optimum acceleration and maximum driving pleasure.
