The BMW Z8 (internal model E52) was manufactured from March 2000 to July 2003.
The design – with its wide BMW kidney and side air intakes – is based on the BMW 507 produced from 1956 to 1959. The prototype, drawn by Henrik Fisker under Adrian van Hooydonk, was presented at the 1997 Motor Show in Tokyo under the designation “BMW Z07”. The production version was presented at the IAA in 1999 and built from March 2000. In the limited series, only 5.703 examples of the vehicle were produced, just 319 of which were in the colour topaz blue.
The structure consists of a self-supporting aluminium frame (space frame) with cladding parts screwed on. The front and rear bumpers as well as the rocker panels are made of elastically deformable polyurethane.
The rear lights were designed innovatively in neon technology (the only vehicle in the world with this technology). The soft top is servo-assisted and a matching hardtop was supplied for the winter. The interior – seats, door panels, part of the dashboard and the center tunnel – is made out of leather in the colour crema.
The technology is based on the sedan M5 (E39S). The engine is a V8 with 5.0L cubic capacity and 294 KW at 6600 rpm. This allows superior driving performance. Acceleration in 4.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, top speed is limited at 250 km/h. The power transmission is a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The vehicle comes with full equipment. Amongst others, it includes the following features:
Airbags, alarm system, ABS, cruise control, air conditioning, electrical steering column longitudinal adjustment, full leather, radio, telephone with hands-free system, navigation, hardtop & hardtop stand, alloy wheels, headlight washer system, xenon lights, headlight range adjustment.
This vehicle was originally delivered in the US. For the registration in Germany, tail lights with yellow indicators were mounted and the vehicle was recoded from US to “European” (ECE). Currently, the rear bumper is also being converted from US- to ECE-homologation.
The vehicle has had various previous owners, documents such as a CarFax report are available upon request.
The vehicle has Alpina rims which are in good condition. This car is offered with a matching body-colour hardtop.
