Advantages: Amazing style!
Disadvantages: 2seats too few
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!
