History About The BMW Z8 Model:
Designed in secret for nearly nine years, the brilliantly sculpted
BMW Z8, like the one seen here, (internally coded E52) was loosely
based in homage to the BMW 507 of the late 1950's. Those limited
production, hand-built roadsters produced from 1955-1959 would mean
only 252 BMW 507's could find USA soil. All of which went to people
of wealthy means considering their $10,000+ MRSP! Thanks to BMW
designers and engineers in the 1990's, a fresh retro version was
sitting on the design pages until 1997, when a concept vehicle hit
the Tokyo Auto Show scene nicknamed the "Z07." Further development
into 1999 provided Hollywood, and James Bond, the first seen Z8 for
the movie "The World is Not Enough" featuring Pierce Brosnan behind
the wheel! The general public could finally have one of their own
in 2000, with production ceasing for United States buyers in 2003.
Only 2,543 units would ever be available, all of which continue to
explode in collectability today!
Similar to the BMW 507, the newly revised BMW Z8 body was built
entirely of aluminum, but this time with modern space frame
technology for utmost rigidity, also consisting of all-aluminum
suspension components. The powerful 4.9L V8 engine (shared with the
larger M-Series M5 sedan) produced 400 horsepower and 370 lb. ft.
of torque through a smooth shifting 6-speed manual transmission!
Considering the car was perfectly designed to provide an equal
50/50 weight distribution, comfortable 2-seat passenger
compartment, and nothing left off the creature comfort list, the
Z8's weight was shaved down to only 3,494 pounds to provide one of
the most adrenaline-charged rides one could buy in the early 21st
Century! Even Car and Driver Magazine test results showed the
Ferrari 360 Modena couldn't match this little rocket in
acceleration, braking, and handling!

This 2002 BMW Z8 Roadster began life selling new from the luxurious
Midwestern Auto Group based out of Dublin, OH in December of 2001,
likely as a lease vehicle. Under the careful care of its first
owner, the Z8 accumulated only 1,014 miles during its first three
years of life before selling to the second owner through the Toy
Barn, also of Dublin, OH, in March 2004. The second owner was
located in the East Hamptons, NY where the car would be driven
regularly during summer months for the next 12 years. The vehicle
has was always serviced and maintained at Country Imports BMW
located in Southampton, NY through 27,960 miles. The final and most
recent collector, Evergreen Historic Automobiles, purchased the
two-seater BMW in August 2016 where only 870 miles were added to
the odometer. Upon arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum, our
experienced automotive service ream performed a full service to
include all new drive belts, new engine oil/filter, engine air
filter, fresh cabin air filter, new power steering reservoir hose,
flushed brake fluid, along with new trunk support struts, cleaned
MAF sensor, and upgraded steel oil pan drain plug insert.
We are proud to represent a truly outstanding BMW Z8 throughout

Roadster has a beautiful paint finish without any paint work
history, a very clean leather interior, along with, coming complete
with a factory boot cover, windscreen, tool kit, both keys, and
clean CarFax report. BMW's Z8 models are not only very exciting to
drive and enjoy, they have also proven to be very robust and
dependable for collectors who also enjoy actually using their
investments by cruising the open road! They are incredibly fast,
naturally-aspirated V8-powered cars, that are making a slow
departure from the sports car market these days. The growl from the
exhaust is exhilarating and can be experienced by watching our
detailed video above! A swiftly accurate manually-shifted 6-speed
transmission and the simplicity of an interior with instrumentation
catering only to the driver's eye really make for a visceral
driving experience! And yet, you have all the creature comforts you
desire, and nothing more. A vehicle such as this one just begs to
be driven! With that being said, it's no surprise that the BMW is
referred to as "The Ultimate Driving Machine!"
