BMW pulled the curtain back on the new BMW Z4 sDrive35is in Detroit yesterday, and we have the live photos to prove it!

As expected, BMW wheeled out the new BMW Z4 sDrive35is at the NAIAS.  Fans of the Z4 model will be thrilled with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine that gets the car off the line and to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds.

The driver can achieve such a quick time with the included launch control, and the boost in torque.  Now generating up to 332 ft-lb, the engine puts out by 340-horsepower, up from 306 hp.  With the overboost function, torque can be risen up to 369 ft-lb.

Engineers mated the tuned engine to the seven-speed double-clutch from the sDrive35i.  The new car has an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Standard on the car is the M Sports Package, which accounts for new bumpers, rear diffuser, and wheels.  The car's suspension is lowered by 10mm.

The BMW Z4 sDrive35is will hit the market this spring in both the US and Europe.
