A MOTORING WORK OF ART.
When it first appeared in 1997 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the BMW Z8 was clearly inspired by the legendary BMW 507. Heart-melting design from Chief Designer Chris Bangle and his team, combined nostalgia with state-of-the-art technology and the aluminium spaceframe penned by Henrik Fisker.
The BMW Z8 featured a high performance, 5 litre V8 sports engine, delivering 400 hp and 542 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque, ensuring the Z8 makes an entrance. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under five seconds and a restricted top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) were the vital statistics, and then there is the soundtrack only an eight-cylinder ensemble can produce. In a roadster with the roof down, it is perfect.
