The 2010 BMW Z4 greeted us with its sharky grin this morning, inviting us to peer through the BMW execs with our lens and snap the first live photos of the revised roadster.

The new Z4 can best be described as an evolution of the current design, not a departure. Still, it's hard to ignore the sleekness of the new profile up close. The somewhat stubby feel of the previous generation has been toned down thanks to the swooping beltine and more thoughtfully-designed trunk and rear fenders. We'll have more information when the BMW execs move out from in front of the new roadster and up to the podium.
