This Gorgeous 2001 BMW Z8 is one of the most Iconic cars produced by BMW. With ONLY 2 Owners and 13,178 Miles on her she is in immaculate condition. A locally owned and serviced car for most of its life she runs and drives like she did when she was NEW. Finished in Jet Black with Crema/Black interior this baby will turn heads whenever you take her out. Just look at the pictures and tell me this isn't the best color combo for this classic automobile. The reason People flock to the Z8 in general, because its gorgeous. Truly beautiful. The first time I ever saw a Z8 was the first time everyone else ever saw it in the James Bond movie "The World Is Not Enough," where, as I recall, the car is cut in half down the middle. The Z8 came out in 2000, and it used the powertrain from the famous "E39" BMW M5 a 400-horsepower V8 with a 6-speed manual. At the end of the Z8 run, a limited-production "Alpina" model came out but unlike modern Alpina models, it wasnt a performance version. Instead, it was sort of a luxury touring version of the Z8, with an automatic transmission and the 375-horsepower 4.8-liter V8. I consider this Z8 to be worse than the regular one, but naturally because its rarer collectors flock to it. They shouldnt.
From an investment standpoint between 2000 and 2003, BMW only manufactured about 5,700 Z8 models for the entire world, and sent just 2,500-ish to the United States. And then there are the cars other desirable traits: The fact that all Z8 models (except the rare Alpina version) used a manual transmission, in a world where stick-shift exotics are all shooting up in value and the fact that the Z8 offers a big, muscular V8 to power one of the sexiest cars ever produced.
