A LEADING car dealer is excited to add new models to its range, including bringing a classic sports car back into production.

Sandal BMW has just celebrated the addition of the new BMW 3 Series Saloon and the BMW Z4 roadster to its line-up, and customers have been eager to try out the new models.

The privately-owned dealership group, which recently expanded its operations to serve the Bradford area, held a special weekend test-drive event at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to give new and returning customers a chance to experience the latest progression of “The Ultimate Driving Machine”.

Sandal’s head of business, Jason Carter, said: “The test drive event was great fun. We held more than 240 drives throughout the weekend, and it was a great way to show off these stunning new models. It’s also about giving something back to our brilliant customers.”

The new BMW 3 Series Saloon, which first appeared on the roads in 1975, represents significant advancement over its predecessor, being lighter, more agile, and more aerodynamic. Thanks to its improved suspension, it also boasts much sportier handling, and various other technological enhancements to ensure an enjoyable driving experience for every mile.

The Saloon will also be joined later in the year by the an all new BMW 3 Series Touring model, which will offer more interior space while keeping the high specs and sleek profile of its older sibling.

While the 3 Series maintains a refined appearance while coyly hinting at its sporty pedigree, the BMW Z4 positively revels in it. The latest model of the classic two-seater roadster pays loving homage to its iconic ancestor, but by adding a host of modern features, it looks every inch a cutting-edge, top-of-the-line sports car.

Mr Carter said: “Both of these new models are fantastic additions to BMW’s range. The 3 Series is a timeless model which exemplifies BMW’s commitment to driving dynamics and quality, and the Z4 is an absolute classic – it’s such a pleasure to see it back in production.”

He added: “We’re very proud of being a privately-owned dealership. It means we do things a bit differently. We can hold events like this, and really go above and beyond to provide the very best customer service. We look forward to holding more inclusive test-drive events like this soon.”
