COMPLETE PICTURE"S COMING SOON !!!
Evocative of the stylish BMW 507 of the 1950s, the Henrik Fisker-designed Z07 roadster caught the eyes—and imaginations—of sports car enthusiasts at the 1997 Tokyo Auto Show and prompted BMW to ready it for the 2000 model year.
Renamed the Z8, those fortunate enough to afford and obtain one—only 400 were imported the first year, all topping $130,000 each—were treated to the high-performance capabilities of its 394-plus hp engine and responsive six-speed manual transmission in an aluminum body. While the car promised performance, there was also the assurance of boulevard comfort and elegance in an interior that Car & Driver called “sumptuously inviting,” with leather seating, logically positioned instrumentation, and a high-end sound system.
Of 5,703 Z8s built through 2003, just 2,543 were directed stateside. The 2000 model offered here is an immaculate example. It features a rare Topaz Blue exterior with a Crema Leather interior; just 138 Z8's shared this color combination. The convertible top is Black, and the included hardtop is finished in matching Topaz Blue.
In its 18 years, the car has accumulated a mere 4,600 miles. The consignor reports that the car was never driven in inclement weather and has required only routine maintenance by certified BMW technicians. The car comes with the hardtop, factory coffee table book, a factory tool kit, battery tender, first aid kit, owner’s manual, and requisite Motorola mobile phone accompany the car.
This Z8 is a pristine example of BMW’s flagship sports car and is ready to be shown, driven, and appreciated.
