    Looks to be a U.S. spec Alpina, exported back to Europe?

    Funny! But in truth, it does look great. A crema interior would really give it a classic look.

    I noticed that it has chrome mirrors, but could it be that it's an Alpina with chrome mirrors painted in Alpina green; that would be epic!

    Looks like a regular Z8, no Alpina badge on trunk. It sure looks like Boston Green to me. I had a 5 series in that color for a few years. The Alpina green is more green whereas Boston Green has a blue hint to it.

    I think less blue in the green and non metallic would look more vintage. More BRG or vintage Aston. Just too 80s for me. Not what I call vintage!

    What can I say??? At least it's unique... and hopefully it's a wrap so that it's removable.

    May I ask if the red exterior with black interior comes with the black dash and interior trim? Silver cars have the silver dash/trim...
    How can the eBay seller (Scottsdale Bentley) claim a red/black 2002 is one of five? Perhaps that combo in 2002 only? I see there are 137 of this combo noted in the survey.
    Anyone know?
    Thanks!

    The dealer / salesman is just trying to spur interest to the unsuspecting buyer regarding the number built and most likely, the 1 of 5 is for the 2002 year but I do not know if that number can be substantiated. However, 1 of 137 is still rare but overall the price, $177k, is overpriced a bit (IMHO) as a more rare Blue / Black (1 of 135 built with 23k miles) sold last week in Seattle for $148,800 but the red / black is a more desirable color so as with all of it, eye of the beholder and whatever someone is willing to pay at this point in time.

    To answer your question regarding the black dash, all red cars come with a Black dash, regardless of the color of the interior, unless it was an individual car in Europe, which this car is not (US VIN).
    Best Regards,

    I would have to disagree, from what I've seen the topaz exterior commands a larger premium than the red., and considering the milage difference between the two the red car isn't priced too badly. After all 177 is only asking the dealer would probably let it go for 173 which is a fair price for it.

    Oops

    Okay, Andrew, I have now skewed the survey... I clicked Black with Créma and black instead of just Black with Créma...


  54. #504
    No problem, after all these years its madly skewed anyway, for instance I know of one car that's been with three different owners, and each has logged it in, so its really not a worry - its just a fun thing to see as time goes by.

    I just got back from Munich, where I had the pleasure of seeing (again) the sole prototype Z8 coupe....

  59. #509
    The interesting thing about that car is that BMW had it tuned to 500hp, but when I saw it the guys showing it didn't know how it was achieved, and there wasn't anything visually different in the engine bay.

    I really wish they would've made that car. Anyone know why they're still keeping it a secret and not putting it in their museum?

    I really don't, but there seems to be a culture of secrecy surrounding all the special and uniques versions of all BMW's cars. We know of several secret Z8's, including ones with different bodywork and even some with entirely unique VIN numbers and wider rear haunches that seem to have been made for 'private collections'. However anyone who has had any contact with these cars has been sworn to secrecy, so it is very hard to get any kind of documentation about them.

    Wink Put that camera away, Editor Boy!

    "Why won't BMW allow photos of the prototype Z8 coupe?"

    First of all, the collection is in storage while the new BMW Classic facility is being repaired. There are four floors of a huge building crammed with cars, some too close to walk between. If you squeeze your way into a dark, dusty corner, lured by a double-bubble top, you will find a black Z8 coupe, but it has not been prettified for display. At some point I may find an opportunity to put together a story that would include this car, and I could probably photograph it for that project. It would also appear if the BMW Museum were to mount an exhibit... say the evolution of the Z07 into the Z8! That would make an interesting exhibit, I think, as well as an interesting story!

    Gee, if only we knew a photographer... a writer would be nice, too.

    But the Z8 coupe was not my favorite Z-car...

    They also have, in Butterscotch Yellow, a wonderful Z3. After journalists pooh-poohed the Z3's engine compartment for being too small, the gremlins at M stuffed a V12 into one! Oh, my stars and garters!

  66. #516
    I have a ton of great shots of the Z8 Coupe from the 10th year anniversary event in Munich a few years back, but we were made to swear never to show the car. Quite why I still don't know, but here it is in situ before the cover was removed.

    The Coupe has Alpina Wheels? Is it based off the Alpina?

    It has an S62 motor that is said to be uprated to 500hp, and looking at it both inside and out it is very much a Z8 with Alpina rims, but I don't know/didn't ask if it has Alpina suspension.

    My mistake, it's just a Topaz blue, not a repaint. Though it looked different on the Flickr pictures.

    Andrew wants to keep them all...

    "Damn, that looks good; now I have seller's remorse!"

    What, you mean you sold those chrome wheels?!

    There seems to be one chrome Alpina wheel on eBay... which raises interesting questions: Why just one wheel? Who got drunk and thought chromed wheels were a good idea—especially Alpina wheels?

    My Z4 has been running around on chromed Style 224 wheels lately; that's the wheel that should have come on the car, but mine wound up with takeoffs from an E46M3 (long story), so I eventually bought these, even though they were chromed (?!). I put autocross tires on them for Oktoberfest 2014 and pulled off my red Dinan wheels.

    Oooh: I wonder if Stevie D ever made wheels for the Z8! I wonder if the nineteens he made for the M roadster would work on a Z8! (But no, I am not going to put red wheels on a Jet Black roadster... I don't even think I could get away with ghost flames.)

    I seem to have strayed from the topic. Must be avoiding another deadline!
