Actual Z8 Thread in the Z8 Forum

I'm not sure I've ever seen a Z8 on the road in the U.S. Might not have known what to look for previously as I'm still pretty new to the BMW world. I do remember the car from the James Bond Movie and remembered that it seemed pretty bad ass.

So during my recent ED I drooled over the one in the BMW museum.



About four days later I'm in the old section of Verona Italy and what should I see. It was a little parking area in front of a hotel. I tried to park there and a lady immediately came and shoed me away. Then before I could leave another attendant came and asked me how long I was going to stay. I think he thought it was pretty cool having the Z4 and Z8 next to each other in front of the hotel. I told him I didn't know for sure, he thought about it then thought better and let me know about some parking around the corner.

Actual Z8 Thread in the Z8 Forum

I was fortunate to see this beauty this year. I've seen the Z8 only 6 different times in my life.

The only one I've seen was this past summer at the Saratoga (NY) Automobile Musuem. Their exhibition this year was devoted to BMW and they had a beautiful topaz blue one, sitting right next to a 507 no less.

Seen one here in Japan..actually heard it first...odd note, not an I6, not a V8...OMG that's a Z8....V10....also sighted a lime green Porsche GT3 RS one morning....but the
top MF of all....found myself right behind a behemoth red rear wing and license plate that read "40".....can you guess....out of respect I stayed 4-5 car lengths behind..and lost it in traffic...
I may never see a real Ferrari F40 again..but that was special.

Z8 beauty

I was fortunate enough to own two different Z8's. Very unique and stylish cars. I sold them both a while ago....stupid, stupid, stupid! I hate myself.

I'm lucky to see my Z8 whenever I want to. Here's a pic of it. It's a 2002 with 17'000 km run.
