    I actually think that's a pretty glowing review.

    Funnily enough it was Evo's original write up of the Z8 that really fired up my interest in the Z8 back in '00. You can see it all the other contemporary reports here.

    The one thing that really doesn't make sense with a Z8 is England, and I say that as an ex-pat who grew up in the New Forest before the blanket speed limits and speed cameras as both a driver and a motorcyclist. The reason I moved to California was the roads, there is nowhere in the UK that you can having a driving experience anything like taking the back roads from LA up to Laguna Seca. The 340 miles of insanely beautiful open roads with only a few little villages to slow down for is unequalled in the UK, then add in Death Valley, the Angeles Crest Highway and you're simply on another planet of driving delight. If I still lived in the UK I'd never have had a Z8, it's a senseless car for over there, but it makes soooooo much sense over here.
