    Logo



    This logo is seen on the James Bond car. Does anybody know if this was an option for the "normal cars" or maybe with the first "batch" of cars?

    In my Z8 search, I only saw one car in the LA area with this badging on the rear. The US sales brochure that I have also shows the Z8 logo on the rear bumper of a silver car. Personally, I prefer to restrict the Z8 logo to the interior of the car between the two seats.

    It was the only option on the car in the EU, but I am not sure if it was made available in the US.

    Yes I bought the logo at an online parts shop in Germany, but not with the intention to put it on the car.

    My understanding is this was going to be included on all Z8s but at a late stage the decision was made to deliver cars without the Z8 logo below the trunk cut line on the upper center of the rear bumper because the people involved with the project felt it was better to have the car be clean looking and everyone would know what it is. But the PN is in the system.

    In the introduction brochures the car has the Z8 logo but in the brochure buyers got when they ordered the car ( if I understand correct) the logo has disappeared from the back.So that is in line with your understanding Jerry

    It was exactly this discrepancy that caused me to inquire on this years ago.
