2003 BMW Alpina Z8 Roadster For Sale

Produced from 1999 to 2003, the BMW Z8 holds a place in popular culture that few cars ever have or ever will thanks to its use as James Bond's car in The World is Not Enough. Designed as an homage to the 1956 BMW 507 the concept Z07 caused a sensation at the '97 Tokyo Auto Show where it was debuted. Spurred by the positive response garnered at the show BMW decided to put the Z07 into production in the form of the Z8, ultimately producing 5,703 cars. Designed by Henrik Fisker, any similarities between this car and Fisker's Fisker Karma are purely uncoincidental. Sold at a price of $128,000, the car featured an all-aluminium chassis & body and used a 4.9L 32-valve V8 that developed 400hp and 500Nm of torque. The car is essentially front-mid-engined as the power unit is mounted behind the front axle to provide the car with perfect 50/50 weight distribution. With a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds and lateral grip at .92 the car was everything a sport focused BMW is expected to be. Car and Driver magazine tested the car exhaustively and found that it easily outperformed the contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in acceleration, handling and braking. The car we are offering is the Alpina V8 Roadster, production of the Z8 finished in November of 2002 and gave way to the Alpina production in 2003. 555 units were built in total and the car fulfilled a totally different role to that of the original Z8 thanks to a series of changes that saw the car focused towards Grand Touring rather than Racing. The original 6-Speed Manual gearbox and 4.9L engine were replaced with a 5-Speed Steptronic Automatic gearbox mated to a 4.8L Alpina tuned power unit from the E39 B10 V8 S. Relaxed suspension tuning was employed the make the car more compliant and the 18in Run Flat tyres were replaced with regular tyres with softer side walls on 20in wheels. The new engine allowed an increased amount of torque to become available at far lower RPM which enabled more relaxed cruising. The top speed was also raised electronically from 250km/h to 259km/h. The example we are pleased to offer for sale is a 2003 US supplied example finished in the striking Black over Red colour scheme. The car maintains its factory hardtop roof, handbooks, car cover, first aid kit, battery charger, and roof stand. The history file contains a large number of invoices documenting various service works done to the car during both its time in the USA as well as the U.K. It sits today in fantastic condition and is showing just over 14,000 miles from new. Convertible cruising machines do not get much better than this! Contact us now for more information or to arrange a viewing.
