BMW presented the Z07 Concept, at the Tokyo Motor Show, paying homage to the legendary 507 roadster. The car received an overwhelming response at the BMW stand, prompting the brand to introduce an exclusive production version of the model. And that’s where the story of the Z8 took off.
When the Z8 is unveiled in 1998, it immediately became clear that this open two-seater would hold a unique status. Despite its exceptional design and its role as a tribute to the brand’s history, the Z8 did not achieve the success BMW had hoped for. Ultimately, only 5,703 units are produced.
Beneath the nostalgic-looking bodywork lies the brand’s highly modern technology. An aluminum space frame combined with aluminum body parts, as well as then far from commonplace xenon headlights, and a highly esteemed 4.9-liter V8 engine with double VANOS variable valve timing and a manual transmission.
In the late 1990s, customers stepping into the seemingly pure and spartan roadster were in for a treat: aside from the fantastic design, the occupants lack nothing. An electrically adjustable steering column, fully electrically adjustable seats, and a Harman Kardon audio system with 10 speakers are just a few of the features that make driving the Z8 such a delight.
The aforementioned 4.9-liter V8 engine is shared with the M5. It’s a power plant from BMW Motorsport, delivering 400 hp and 500 Nm of torque. This allows the Z8 to sprint to 100 km/h in just over 4.5 seconds, with a top speed limited to 250 km/h; without the limiter, the sports car could top-out at around 290 km/h.
This Z8 comes from its second owner and has only covered 26,000 kilometers. Being a European-delivered roadster, it is in sublime condition. The paintwork, wheels, windows, and rubber components not only look new but are, in fact, almost new. So, this Z8 has not had a rough life.
The body is free from any damage, and the condition of the paint is perfect, with no dents, scratches, or unsightly spots, just a spotless finish. Very impressive! The wheels are fitted with excellent tires in the correct sizes.
The interior is equally impressive, with beautiful seats covered in exquisite leather that is naturally in top condition. BMW has succeeded in designing one of the most beautiful airbag steering wheels ever, a true work of art. The same can be said for the rest of the interior, which has a classic appearance without being retro or outdated. It is truly uniquely designed and still timelessly beautiful.
The Z8 comes with a leather folder containing the original manuals and has been dealer-maintained. Additionally, there are several invoices and documentation. The car was originally delivered in Berlin and later brought to the Netherlands.
This BMW, in the most well-known and sought-after color scheme, offers you the unique opportunity to own an exceptionally pure Z8. One thing is certain: like its predecessor, the 507, the Z8, as one of the last low-production sports cars, destined only become more cherished in the near future.
