The BMW Z8
It would be easy to associate the BMW Z8 with other retro-revival cars of the 1990s and early 2000s, but that would hardly be the case. BMW had already honoured its past with the sporty Z3 roadster, after all. So, the Z8 instead married the muscular V-8 engine from BMW’s Motorsports division with the considerable design talent of lead exterior pen Henrik Fisker. This was to be the company’s halo car and would boldly launch BMW into the 21st century.
The Z8, nearly identical to the Z07 show car from the 1997 Tokyo salon, was unlike any BMW since the M1. Its styling evoked the BMW 507—the design icon that so nearly bankrupted the fledgling automaker in the 1950s. Under its sumptuous curves sat an M5-sourced S62 4.9-liter V-8 paired to a six-speed manual transmission. The Z8 had the power to back up its stunning styling.
About 5,700 examples were hand-built in Munich over a three-year run, after the Z8 made its silver screen debut in the 1999 James Bond blockbuster The World is Not Enough. Following the Z3’s role in Goldeneye, the Z8 starred in a short but memorable scene with Mr Bond behind the wheel. Nevertheless, it captivated fans worldwide and proved that BMW was a force to be reckoned with.
This BMW Z8
The Z8 offered here is a European delivery example that was first registered in Germany and remained with its original owner until 2006. It was then sold to a noted German collector before it was sold once again to its current owner in Denmark. After searching for the perfect Z8 for over 2 years and having inspected 18 examples across Europe our client found this pristine example for his collection.
The car is finished in Titanium Silver over Sport Red/Black interior, the paintwork is spotless with no scratches and all four wheels are unmarked. The interior is in outstanding condition with no marks or dents. The car has been regularly serviced at authorized BMW dealerships. The Z8 received a full inspection and service at 17,320km at BMW on 9th of March 2021. The car shows just 18,200 kilometres since new and also includes its original factory hardtop, stand, phone and all car covers.
