    9 years soon and only 24,000 km

    Beautiful garage!

    I've had my current one for 6 years and she's just done 16,000 miles. I bought her new, put every joyous mile on her doing really memorable drives, and photographed many of them here too. I've had many track day cars, but they all came and went, but my Z8 is the nicest open road sportster ever, and I will keep her forever.

    I drove an R8 earlier this year, what a stunning machine!

    Bought mine (first registered oct 2001) in March 2003 with 18k KM on the clock. It now has 36k on the clock after nearly 7 years so average of 2.5 k per annum (approx). Won't be more going forward, possibly even less with the other toys available.
    cheers

    It will be 9 years for me in a few more months. I can hardly believe it's been so long. People still ask if it is a new model. As I've mentioned over the years, because of it's uniquely classic styling, and the fact that there was no successor to render it "yesterdays model", it ages very well indeed. 9 years is a big chunk of life. When I got it my children were little, they're now grown...my hair was still dark, now silver, and not as much of it. Perhaps the Z8 will be my "Portrait of dorian grey". While it has aged some, not nearly as much as I! And the friendships I've made through the Z8, many now 8 years and running, are some of my closest and dearest. I am blessed to have it all.
