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 that has been wonderfully maintained since new! This 2002 Z8 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!"
