The BMW Z8 is my Dream car! It featured in the recent Bond movie, and has to be the most desirable german motorcar ever made! The car is incredible expensive for what it is, coming in at just under £80,000, but if you want a load of extras then you're going to have to pay a lot more! It's got two excellent leather seats, and a fairly compact boot, so don't expect this to be a family car! It's devilishly quick and sprints to 62mph in under 5.5 seconds, but the top speed shouldn't really be of interest to you seeing as the national limit is 70mph. However, I think it's safe to say the car can do at least double that! The Z8 is a soft top sports machine, that looks an absolute beast to drive, but seeing as I haven't driven one, due to financial circumstances (!) I can only tell you that the car is very highly regarded by those who have. Jeremy Clarkson loves his I am sure! The interior is very plush with a stunningly stylish dashboard all in delicious alloy and chrome! The car is very BMW, although I feel it looks a little more retro than most of the standard Beemer's. The grill is very wide at the front, and there's various styling enhancements including chrome wing mirrors and side grils and so on.The engine is a lovely M Powered affair, that growls like nothing you've heard before. If I won the lottery, other than feeding the poor and hungry and needy and donating money to good causes for instance children in need or comic relief etc, I'd get this!
The BMW Z8 is a brilliant sports car for the price........£80,000! Well, then again maybe not! The Z8 started out as a concept car in 1997. It is based on the BMW 508, the elegant 50's sports car. The Z8 is very similar to its 50's predessesor yet it is engineered for the new Millenium. The Z8 is also similar to the 2000 Porsche 911. The car is a classic roadster shape. From the moment you step into the car, and gaze at the long bonnet, you know that you are in a quality sports car. Just looking at the dashboard makes your mounth water, glaring at the many knobs and dials. Despite having many knobs and dials, simplicity is a key asset for this German built car. All of the knobs and dials are clear and easy to use. What about driving this beast? Well, as you would expect the 5-litre V8 is no slow coach! The engine roar is very menacing and you are bound to have fellow car drivers turning green with envy. The Z8 is fiercely fast! Five clear gear changes and you would have reached the the BMW's top speed of 155 miles per hour! Along the way, you also would have reached 0-60 in just 4.0 seconds. The engine is the same as that in the M5, delivering 400 BHP. The speed will give you thrills, yet the ride will probably not. Sports cars are not known to have an uncomfortable bumby ride....but this car does that! That is a big disadvantage and not something that you expect from an £80,000 car! The Z8 is stuffed full of gadgets such as a satnav system built into the standard radio slot. There are other thigs like a neon brake and indicator lighting which means the light responds to the brake pedal ten times quicker than a normal bulb. So, the BMW certainly is clever, as well as damn good looking. James Bond liked his, so why shouldn't you? Spec: Type: Two seater roadster Engine: 5-litre 32-valve V8 Price: £80,000 On sale (UK): Now
I could not believe this car when I looked at it, stunning! Then I got behind the wheel, even better. This can not be called a car, this has to be called a beast of an engine. 0-60 in about 3 seconds (when I'm driving anyway). It handles corners brilliantly and it turns heads when i'm driving. If you have the money to buy this beauty then buy it. I have three of these car now and i am pleased with them all. A gem of a car.
to buy this car... But there will be only 20,000 tsd built. It will be released at the end of this or the beginning of next year. I worked at the IAA (car fair) 1999. But I couldn't drive this wonderful Z8. A colleague of mine wanted to be the first guy having sex in it, but there was not girl who wanted him.... :-) If you have the opportunity to drive it - please tell me about it.
