About the car
The BMW Z8 (internal prototype E52) is a sports car from the Munich-based car manufacturer BMW. 5703 of the cars were produced by hand between March 2000 and July 2003 (car manufacturer Alpina sold 555 units of vehicles based on the Z8).
The design with its broad BMW grill and side-mounted air intakes, based on the BMW 507 Roadster which was produced from 1956 to 1959, was designed by Henrik Fisker.
The Z8 accelerates to 100 km/h [62 mph] in 4.7 seconds. The Z8 is made from a self-supporting aluminium frame (spaceframe) with a removable outer skin. The cavities are not sealed since aluminium doesn't rust. Thanks to this construction, the bodywork is comparatively light and extraordinarily torsion-resistant.
The vehicle was delivered and certified in Germany and has never left the FRG. The car is accident-free, has never been damaged or repainted and is in perfect as-new collector's condition.
Of course all of the parts which were originally supplied, such as the hard top, hard top rack, tarpaulin, wind deflector, "Motorola Star TAG" mobile phone and the "big book" with engraved vehicle identification number and picture are there, and even the 1:18 scale model car in original packaging and the key case are there. The 20-inch Alpina wheels are brand new. The original wheels are also provided.
