The BMW Z8 is considered by many as one of the most timeless and beautiful BMW models ever created. This stunning example was recently spotted in Beverly Hills, USA.
The BMW Z8 was produced from 1999 to 2003, with only about 5,700 units manufactured in total, making it a rarity in the market. The design of the Z8 was crafted by Henrik Fisker and drew inspiration from the classic lines of the BMW 507 from the 1950s. The result is a breathtaking retro design with clean, timeless contours and a touch of nostalgia.
Under the Z8's hood lies a powerful 4.9-liter V8 engine that produces a robust 400 horsepower and 500 Newton-meters of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, enabling an impressive 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) acceleration in just about 4.7 seconds. The Z8 offers two vehicle configurations: a convertible soft-top for spontaneous open-air driving and an elegant hardtop made from a single piece. While the soft-top provides a convenient solution for convertible driving, the hardtop, when closed, adds an aesthetic elegance to the Z8, resembling a coupe variant that never existed.
The combination of timeless design, powerful engine, and the choice between a soft-top and hardtop makes the BMW Z8 a sought-after collector's item and a legend in the world of sports cars.
