THE BMW Z8

'That this new car, the Z8, is scorchingly fast comes as no surprise. It employs the potent 400-hp M5 powertrain, which endows the M5 sedan with the acceleration of a Corvette. Weighing about 500 pounds less than the two-ton M5, the Z8's performance is beyond question.' – Car & Driver.

In 1956, BMW released the 507, a stunning two-seat Roadster that delivered exhilarating performance, luxury, and rarity, which remains one of the most coveted BMW models ever produced. At the 1997 Tokyo Auto Show, BMW displayed a stylish retro-inspired concept car, the Z07. The Henrik Fisker-designed concept was initially intended to merely exist as a sole concept, however the incredible reception and overwhelmingly positive acclaim spurred the decision to put it into limited serial production in 1999.

The resulting Z8 remained remarkably faithful to the Z07 concept, with the 507-like twin-nostril front grille and distinctive front-wing vents. A period-style interior had been one of the Z07's most remarked upon features, and that too made it into the Z8, including a banjo-style steering wheel. The sleek and taught bodywork was all wrought in aluminum, as was the space-frame chassis. The 4,941cc V8 engine was aluminum as well, a 400-horsepower power-plant that motivates this lithe roadster to 60mph in a scant 4.2 seconds. Needless to say, the Z8 was fitted with all the luxury appointments befitting a flagship model: traction control, stability control, front and side air bags, GPS navigation, climate control and power operation of the seats, steering wheel and convertible top.

Along with being a stunning, hand built limited-production roadster, BMW further enhanced the Z8's appeal to collectors by announcing that a 50-year stockpile of Z8 parts would be maintained. Despite a hefty launch price, initial demand was so high that a bidding war broke out, with many Z8s selling for well in excess of MSRP. By the time production ceased in 2003, 5,703 of these fabulous cars had been built.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

That these cars benefit from a cult following among collectors should come as no surprise, they embody those same retro looks with the 'mod-cons' of today, in keeping with the company's marketing, could well be considered as 'the ultimate driving machine'.

This Jet Black over Crema/Black Z8 was delivered to new to BMW of the Main Line in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania in February 2001 and sold to a Florida resident. One of only 331 Z8s finished in this unique combination, it has spent its entire life in the Sunshine State in the car of just two careful owners. Acquired by the seller half a decade ago, the car has been regularly serviced by marque specialists since new with Braman BMW facilitating the majority of the regular maintenance in the present ownership. Sparingly driven and enjoyed, the car shows a mere 12,800 miles on the odometer.

Offered with the car are the original equipment including manuals, sales brochure, tools, coffee table book, even factory installed cellphone and the hardtop. This Z8 is a highly collectible BMW and will be a treasured asset for years to come.
