More About this Item


Description: 2000 BMW Z8
Carte grise française
Châssis n° WBAEJ11080AF77652

- Une des 49 vendues neuves en France
- Voiture très bien entretenue
- Un collector depuis sa sortie

La BMW Z8, dévoilée au salon de Francfort en septembre 1999, faisait suite à un concept car, la Z07, révélé deux ans auparavant au Salon de Tokyo, à la fin de 1997. Leur style jouait la carte de la nostalgie faisant une référence explicite aux sublimes courbes de la BMW 507 de 1956. La Z8 se présentait sous la forme d''un roadster aux lignes sensuelles, dues au controversé styliste maison Christopher Bangle. Elle repose sur un châssis de type " space frame ", composé d''un treillis en aluminium avec des profilés extrudés associés à des caissons de tôle. Sa mécanique, un époustouflant V8 5 litres développant 400 ch à 6 600 tr/min et 500 Nm de couple, empruntée à la berline M5, emmenait les 1600 kg à 250 km/h et mettait le 0 à 100 km/h à 4,7 s ! La suspension avant provenait elle aussi de la M5, la suspension arrière multi bras, quant à elle, était plus proche de celle de la berline Série 7 contemporaine. Une transmission manuelle à six rapports transmettait la puissance aux roues arrière. L''habitacle jouait aussi la nostalgie avec un tableau de bord en matériau composite peint de la couleur de la caisse, comme dans les années 1950. Construite à 5703 exemplaires de 2000 à 2003, ce dragster de la route est une rare et fascinante machine qui a marqué le commencement du troisième millénaire.

La voiture présentée, vendue par BMW Toulouse est de couleur gris Titanium métallisé, intérieur tout cuir rouge Nappa et capote noire possède son hard top gris. Elle est pourvue de ses livrets et d''un dossier de factures complet et de son Service Heft (carnet d''entretien). Elle totalise
83000 km et a toujours été entretenue et c''est une 3e main. C''est aujourd''hui une véritable voiture de collection en bel état de présentation.



French title
Chassis n° WBAEJ11080AF77652

- One of the 49th sold new in France
- Very well maintained motor car
- A real collector since it came out

The BMW Z8, unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1999, followed a concept car, the Z07, which had been presented two years previously at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of 1997. Their style played the nostalgia card, making an explicit reference to the sublime curves of the BMW 507 from 1956. The Z8 was presented in the form of a roadster with sensual lines, the work of the much discussed house designer Christopher Bangle. It is based on a chassis of the "space frame" type, composed of an aluminium trellis with extruded sections combined with sheet metal cases. Its mechanics, a staggering 5 litre V8 reaching 400 hp at 6,600 rpm and 500 Nm of torque, borrowed from the M5 saloon, took the 1,600 kg to 250 km/h and brought the time taken to get from 0 to 100 km/h to 4.7 s! The front suspension also came from the M5, while the multi-arm rear suspension was closer to that of the contemporary Series 7 saloon. Six-speed manual transmission transferred the power to the rear wheels. The passenger compartment also played on nostalgia, with a dashboard made of composite material painted the same colour as the bodywork, as in the 1950s.This dragster of the road, of which 5,703 units were produced between 2000 and 2003, is a rare and fascinating machine that marked the beginning of the third millennium.

The car presented, sold new by BMW Toulous, is metallic silver Titanium with a full leather Nappa red interior and black hood, it has a silver hard top It comes with the owner''s documents, all service records and
the Service Heft (servicing booklet). It shows 83000 km on the clock and it is a third hand and has always been well maintained. Today, it is a real collector''s car in good condition.
