    “THEN WHEN YOU PRESS THE STARTER BUTTON – SET APART, ALSO A TRIBUTE TO THE PAST – ANOTHER LEVEL OF EXCITEMENT BEGINS." - CAR AND DRIVER

    Estimate £140,000 - £160,000

    The sensation of the 1997 Tokyo Auto Show, the Z07 was received so enthusiastically that BMW took the decision to press ahead with a production version: the Z8. Some of the Z07’s less practical features were deleted, including the four-spoke steering wheel, ‘double bubble’ hardtop and driver’s headrest fairing, but for the most part the Z8 remained remarkably faithful to the original concept, retaining the 507-like twin-nostril front grille and distinctive front-wing vents. A period-style interior had been one of the Z07’s most remarked upon features, and that too made it into the Z8. The Z8’s body panelling and spaceframe chassis were fabricated in lightweight and corrosion resistant aluminium, while the 32-valve 4,941cc V8 engine, shared with M5 saloon, was built by BMW’s Motorsport division. With 400bhp on tap, the Z8 raced to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.7 seconds and only the built-in rev limiter stopped it from exceeding 250km/h (155mph). Power reached the run-flat tyres via a Getrag six-speed manual gearbox.
