About the BMW Z8
A long hood. A wonderfully smooth and quietly rotating V8 in the front. Narrow kidney openings in the nose which are typical for a BMW. Behind the front wheels on the side a subtle air intake. A short rear after the compact cockpit. These features ensure that when you see the BMW Z8 you are reminded of the beautiful BMW 507 from the 1950s. Henrik Fisker knew on which car he had to base his very nice design when he signed the BMW Z8.
After the overwhelming reactions to the concept model Z07, BMW decided to take this concept into production unaltered under the name Z8. In 1999, the BMW Z8 was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 4.9 liter V8 developed by BMW Motorsport was coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. Together they form a phenomenal powertrain that excels in both suppleness and torque, and power at high speeds.
At low speeds the Z8 responds as a smooth cruiser, the V8 engine delivers relaxed performance accompanied by the typical dark brown roll of a large V8 engine. At 4000 rpm, however, the character changes completely. With a tough, hammering roar, the Z8 turns into a thoroughbred racehorse that sprints to 100 km / h in 4.7 seconds. The top speed is limited to 250 km / hour, but 300 km / hour would be possible without limit. With the three-spoke steering wheel firmly in hand, each bend with surprising precision can be sent in, with a great balance in the car.
The BMW Z8 was the first car in which the BMW engineers used an aluminum space frame. This construction resulted in a great weight saving compared to other models. Another ingenuity of this model is neon light technology. This technology is applied in the direction indicators, rear lights and brake lights. The advantages of this system are the fast response time and the long service life, although the latter did not always turn out to be correct. There were no accessories for the BMW Z8. The car was always fully equipped. So every Z8 has a removable hardtop in body color to be able to drive in the cold. For the best sound during every pleasant ride, every Z8 has a Harman Kardon audio system. The Z8 was only delivered in five colors. The customer could choose from Titaniumsilver, Schwarz, Stratus Grau, Topazblau and Hellrot.
