With breathtaking looks and classic proportions, the BMW Z8 was presented the beginning of 2000 as the latest addition to the portfolio of sporting two-seaters. The Z8s appearance is as equally thrilling as its trendsetting chassis structure, this being a self-supporting aluminium frame called space frame.
This is wrapped in a sleek body shell featuring screw-on components. Under the bonnet there is a high-performance V8 sports motor displacing five litres. Impressive power of 400 bhp is transmitted to the wheels by a six-speed transmission.
Originally sold in Connecticut in 2003, this incredibly well presented example of BMW’s retro-inspired flagship is finished in the attractive combination of Titan Silber Metallic over a black leather interior. With fewer than 13,000 original miles, this well maintained and cared for example is in very good condition throughout. The smart aluminum bodywork present beautifully, and the attractive 507-inspired interior is in similarly excellent condition, with its luxuriant black hides showing minimal wear.
MW’s sensational Z8 roadster stands as a modern icon of BMW design and sophistication. With a 396hp M V8, 6-speed transmission, M Motorsport suspension, all-aluminum chassis and body, factory removable aluminum hardtop, wild neon and xenon exterior lighting and 507 derived styling. This package is as thrilling to drive as it is memorable to look at. Other notable features include standard heated seats, GPS navigation, all Nappa leather upholstery, color-matched interior trim, dynamic stability control, and four SRS airbags. This low-mile car is one of the just 135 cars built during the entirety of Z8 production finished from the factory in Topaz Blue Metallic with black interior. It is presented in excellent, near-showroom condition and comes with excellent service documentation as well as a spotless CARFAX report showing no accident history. Original MSRP when this car was sold new at BMW of Seattle was $130,745.
The car presented, which is metallic silver grey with a black interior and black hood, has a grey hard top with a cover and support. It comes with the owner’s documents and a BMW DVD case for the on-board guide system.
The Service Heft (servicing booklet) is stamped up to December 2007, at which time the car had 28,375 km on the clock. Bought in 2009 by Daniel Peeters, who had a distinct taste for BMWs, as it was parked next to a BMW 507 and the BMW 328 in the sale, it had at that time covered 30,000 km and has driven little since. Today, it is a real collector’s car in good condition.
