Video: Seen Through Glass Review of the BMW Z8



Quote:
I visit Carugati in Geneva, Switzerland to test drive a BMW Z8. In recent years, the value of these 20 year old BMWs have gone through the roof so I tried to find out why.

When it first appeared in 1997 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the BMW Z8 was clearly inspired by the legendary BMW 507. Heart-melting design from Chief Designer Chris Bangle and his team, combined nostalgia with state-of-the-art technology and the aluminium spaceframe penned by Henrik Fisker.

The BMW Z8 featured a high performance, 5 litre V8 sports engine, delivering 400 hp and 542 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque, ensuring the Z8 makes an entrance. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under five seconds and a restricted top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) were the vital statistics, and then there is the soundtrack only an eight-cylinder ensemble can produce. In a roadster with the roof down, it is perfect.

If money was no object, this would be one of the BMW's I'd love to own the most. I don't care if it's not a sharp handling car, I absolutely adore the way it looks. This car was about the only good thing about that James Bond movie.

Make mine Titanium Silver on Red please.

spent a ton of time in the seat of a alpina z8 (sr Thomas owned one for years) over the years, def one of the most eye catching BMWs ever. Such a great looking fun car. Timeless to say the least

That looks so nice in blue and much more unique than the silver on the majority of them.

The Z8 is drop dead gorgeous. I've seen one or two at cars and coffee and they always grab my attention. Henrik Fisker just did a magnificent job designing a retro-modern roaster with influence from the 507.
