z8 lust (warning - contains carporn)

Just returned from a trip to Europe and I saw a z8 in person for the first time. I've always had a distant crush, now I have a firsthand crush.

Soooo purdy.

Seeing this really made me want to rush home to my M though. In terms of sexiness per $ she scores pretty well against the z8.

THeres a Z8 that shows up pretty regularly at the SUnday morning cars n coffee, here on Long Island. One time, I got there early and my son and I parked my Z3's next to him.
Side by Side you can see the heritage from the Z3 ( post facelift) and the Z8. Its a silver one, too. Fun fact, because the body work is all hand made on the Z8, the hard top that comes with each one will only fit that specific car. And, me personally, I like the standard shark gills of the Z3, instead of the //M and Z8 ones.

Went to a function sponsored by the Houston BMW club a few months ago at a local dealership. There was a black car inside the service drive I have never seen before. I asked what it was and found out it is a Z8 owned by the tennis player Pete Samparas. The price was $300,000. It was stunning.
