2000 Special Edition Z8

I wanted to ask if any of you know of a Special Edition Z8 when they were first introduced. Back in 2000 I knew somebody who purchased one and he told me shortly after that his model was a limited run "Special Edition" that was worth about 200k. Some of the detail on his car differed from the production models that followed. Thanks

Alpina made what I suppose could be considered a "special edition". It had a 4.8L V8, instead of the usual 5L M5 engine, softer suspension, and only came with an automatic transmission. It was an attempt to make the Z8 into a cruiser instead of a half-assed sports car.

Alpina Z8

To my knowledge the Alpina Z8 was the only special edition Z8 you could get. Nice one on view at BMW dealer in Toronto.
