ABOUT THE Z8 ROADSTER:

The Z8 originally was designed as a styling exercise intended to evoke and celebrate the 1956-1959 BMW 507. Prototypes were spotted testing between 1996 and 1999. A concept was later developed to preview the Z8, called the Z07 and was showcased in October 1997 at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The Z8 cost US$128,000, had an all-aluminum chassis and body, and used a 4.9 L V8 engine which has a power output of 400 395 hp at 6,600 rpm and 369 lbf�ft of torque at 3,800 rpm. This engine, known internally as the S62, was built by BMW Motorsport and was shared with the E39 M5 sports saloon. The engine is located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with a 50/50 weight distribution.

The factory claimed a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 4.7 seconds; Motor Trend magazine achieved 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.

Road & Track measured the car's lateral grip at 0.92. Car and Driver magazine also tested the car and found that it outperformed the contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in three important performance categories: acceleration, handling, and braking. As with most BMW automobiles the top speed of the Z8 was electronically limited to 155.4 mph with the delimited top speed amounting to an estimated 180 mph.

Every car was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with a rear defroster.

In order to keep the interior uncluttered, a number of functions were integrated into multifunction controls. For example, the power windows and mirrors were controlled by a single instrument. Also, the center-mounted instrument cluster was canted slightly toward the driver. The displacement of gauges to the middle of the dashboard was intended to offer an unimpeded view of the hood and the road ahead.

In order to promote the Z8 to collectors and reinforce media speculation about the car's "instant classic" potential, BMW promised that a 50-year stockpile of spare parts would be maintained in order to support the Z8 fleet as all elements of the car were constructed or finished by hand, thereby compounding the importance of ongoing manufacturer support. A significant number of cars with bespoke paint and interior treatments were produced over the course of the four-year production run by BMW Individual, a division of BMW AG.
