    Arrow 2003 Z8 (#61951) Black-Crema with only 4200 miles - coming back on the market

    This stunning one owner car is as perfect as you can get, and in one of the most desirable combos too.

    It has been regularly serviced every eight months, with all fluids changed because the owners didn't drive the car much, but were very conscious of keeping it in perfect condition.
    A new battery has just been installed, and the trickle charger is always connected.
    The car comes with it hardtop and storage rack on wheels.
    Car cover, all the original parts, books, window sticker, keys etc are included.

    The only downside it still has the appalling original run flat tires, which must be changed immediately.

    Other than that this is as perfect an example as you could find anywhere.

    Just curious. How many Z8's where made in 2003? Obviously I know 555 Alpina's were made.

    Around 150 or so, and in the fullness of time I believe that this will make the '03 cars a little more desirable for serious collectors.

    I have not sold it, so to the best of my knowledge it is still available.

    I have been asked to help find this stunning car a new home, it has only done 100 miles in total since the last sale over 18 months ago, and represents one of the most glorious combos in the most desirable '03 specifications.

    Please PM me if you are interested.

    We're testing the waters, the buyer got this one at the very top of the market, so we want to help him recover as much of his investment as possible. I'd like to see it sell for in the 250k range if possible.

    I've never understood what you don't like about the run-flat tyres. I changed the originals on mine at 4200 miles, as they were then 11 years old or so, for new same run flat spec. I am a stickler for originality! My Z8 with it's run-flat tyres is a lot more comfortable than my 911 with PZeros

    Concrete stiff sidewalls causing Harsh ride quality. Abysmal traction.

    It so happens that I have a story coming up on driving from NJ to California on a new set of Bridgestone run-flats. I also ran over to Palm Desert and back last week, taking Route 74, one of my favorite twisty roads. They may not be Michelin Pilot Sport 4S's, but I like them swell.

    But what do I know? It's not like I drive the car a lot—oh, wait: I guess 15,000 miles in a year and a half is more than most, isn't it?
