Jet Black w/Red/Black interior, 4.9L/394hp V8, 6-spd. manual transmission.

The Z8 has an all-aluminum chassis and body, and uses a 4.9 L; 301.5 cu in V8 engine, which has a power output of 394hp at 6,600 rpm and 369 lbs/ft of torque at 3,800 rpm. This engine, known internally as the S62, was built by BMW Motorsport and was shared with the M5. The engine is located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with a 50/50 weight distribution. The factory claimed a 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time of 4.7 seconds; Motor Trend magazine achieved 0–96 km/h (0–60 mph) in 4.2 seconds. Road & Track measured the car’s lateral grip at 0.92. Car and Driver magazine also tested the car and found that it outperformed the contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in three important performance categories: acceleration, handling, and braking. As with most BMW automobiles the top speed of the Z8 was electronically limited to 155.4 mph with the delimited top speed amounting to an estimated 180 mph.

The Z8 used neon exterior lighting, the tail lights and turn indicators are powered by neon tubes that offer quicker activation than standard lightbulbs and are expected to last for the life of the vehicle.

Every car was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with a rear defroster. Unlike many contemporary hardtops, which are provided for practical rather than stylistic considerations, the hardtop of the Z8 was designed from the outset to complement the lines of the car’s styling.

The stunning Z8 presented here came out of a private collection and is in absolutely pristine condition throughout, having traveled only slightly over 7k miles since new!  The car is finished in Jet Black with a Red/Black interior.  This example features the highly desirable 6-spd. manual transmission.

Interior

In order to keep the interior uncluttered, a number of functions were integrated into multifunction controls. For example, the power windows and mirrors were controlled by a single instrument. Also, the center-mounted instrument cluster was canted slightly toward the driver. The displacement of gauges to the middle of the dashboard was intended to offer an unimpeded view of the hood and the road ahead.

In order to promote the Z8 to collectors and reinforce media speculation about the car’s “instant classic” potential, BMW promised that a 50-year stockpile of spare parts would be maintained in order to support the Z8 fleet. Due to the limited volume of production, all elements of the car were constructed or finished by hand, thereby compounding the importance of ongoing manufacturer support for the type. The price and production process allowed BMW to offer customized options to interested buyers. A significant number of cars with bespoke paint and interior treatments were produced over the course of the four-year production run by BMW Individual, a division of BMW AG.
