2001 BMW Z8
One Owner 2001 BMW Z8
Up for sale is a gorgeous 1-Owner 2001 BMW Z8 with only 66,655 original miles!
The Z8 has an all-aluminum chassis and body and a 4.9 L (4941 cc) 32-valve V8, that developed 400 hp (300 kW) and 370 lb·ft (500 N·m) torque. This engine was built by the BMW Motorsport subsidiary and was shared with the E39 M5.
The engine was located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with 50/50 weight distribution. Car and Driver magazine 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 products, its top speed was electronically limited to 155.4 mph (250 km/h).
The Z8 got 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 Z8 was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with rear defroster. Unlike many accessory hardtops, which are provided for practical rather than stylistic considerations, the Z8 hardtop was designed from the outset to complement the lines of the roadster.
In order to keep the interior uncluttered, a number of convenience 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 these gauges to the middle of the dash 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 Z8'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 Z8 production, all elements of the car were constructed or finished by hand, thereby compounding the importance of ongoing manufacturer support for the type.
