Default Z8!

Saw an old friend who used to work with me at a grocery store driving his dads beloved Z8 yesterday. It must be nice to be able to drive someone elses 130,000 dollar sports car! What an awesome car, great sound coming from that V8.

Ahh, the Z8. Yet another car I'd like to have someday.

It's another one of those cars I'd actualy call "sexy". (There aren't too many)

I wouldn't be out driving that car though, it seems like it would be more of a collectors item because of its very very limited production. Less Miles = Better!!

Look at all the privelages owners received when ordering a Z8:

Ordering and taking delivery of a car as exclusive as the Z8 should be a memorable experience; BMW has taken steps to ensure that it is just that. Owners awaiting delivery of their roadster will be offered a high-quality scale model of the Z8. A handmade book will be presented to the owner of each Z8 upon delivery, including photographs of his or her car in production and actual paint and upholstery samples from the car. Z8 owners are offered the opportunity to take delivery of their roadster at BMW headquarters in Munich, Germany, where they may even watch the final assembly of their roadster. Munich delivery also includes a tour of the Z8 assembly area, and an optional European tour is offered. Alternatively, delivery is also possible at the BMW Performance Center at Spartanburg, South Carolina. The purchase of a Z8 includes a special driving course at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Oh wow, they aren't really selling for as much as I thought they would be: On Ebay there are quite a few with less then 15k miles and all are priced between 75-95k.

Wonder if anyone took both: European delivery, then back to Spartanburg, SC for the track time before a leisurely drive back home.

Ahhhh, now that would be nice!
