    Only 20 manual 599 GTBs for the US, and this one just sold for quite a premium over F1-equipped models.

    Last of the manual V12 F-Cars.

    Welcome, Fatih!! Many thanks to both of you for all the data. :)

    Note that 62370 is the only US Alpina that is Titanium with Cream-Black Interior, and none in that color combo in EU, either.

    And only 3 EU and 5 US standard Z8s in that color combo, too.

    Here is a breakdown from the above PDFs of US and EU Z8 Alpina totals.

    2002 Titanium/Black - 73
    2003 Titanium/Black - 94
    Total Titanium/Black - 167

    That's $301,528 at today's exchange rate (which includes the premium). A bit steep for a 16,800-mile (titanium/black?) example, yes?

    Since Ron's Z8 is 60024, it is one of the pre-production variety outlined above.

    Great info! Thanks. :)

    Thanks for the update. Looking forward to the data. :)
  8. Sticky: That's actually incredibly fast, considering the...

    That's actually incredibly fast, considering the work you had to do. I'm anxious to see how the Alpina totals correlate with total Z8 production, since they're included within the overall VIN range....

    Yes, I'm sure that's why it's never been done. I'd be willing to spend $25K on hand-hammered aluminum for such a project, and I've found and commissioned an old-school fabricator who assures me it...
  10. Agreed. Alpina or equivalent chassis (including...

    Agreed. Alpina or equivalent chassis (including PP) and suspension before upping horsepower. And the only reasonable candidate for that and a fully polished body would be a non-investment-quality...

    It's actually good that your first choice of ONE-342 was unavailable, since we now have official database production numbers indicating there were 352.

    Sadly, the vast majority of Z8s sold are heading back across the pond somewhere.

    Grabbing a clean higher-mile Silver/Black is still the best option for a polished body and serious performance...

    Hmmm... This would be the perfect "driver" to have aluminum front/rear/valance body panels made and polish the whole car ala Shelby AC Cobra.

    Take whatever time is needed. You're the only one who can provide this information, so I'll wait patiently and continue working on the project of printing all build sheets for the US cars from the...

    How 'bout a new custom user title "One of 46 of 191 of 352"? :D

    Great, and thank you. I'm 100% convinced your data is the actual and accurate data.

    A further thought would be that the additional 51 cars previously reported as Indivudal quantities were indeed ordered as Indivudal units, but for other optional inclusions rather than exterior or...

    Here is a comparison of the previously reported combined EU/US production number totals with the new data provided by zed8 above.

    Totals on the left are from above as EU / US / ALL, with the...

    Evidently, this is the correct information straight from the BMW database. Many previous totals are correct, confirmed by this new data.

    My speculation (and that's all it is for now) is that the...

    A few of these totals are different than the numbers previously provided. But since these appear to be direct prints from the BMW database for dealers, I'm adjusting all previous numbers to these...

    I know this is bumping a very old thread, but are there more images available of the 167-style M6 wheels on various colors by any members?

    Very nice. Will this breakdown distinguish Z8 from Z8 Alpina by color combos?

    - - - Updated - - -



    I think this will be more interesting and informative than many might think.
  26. Sticky: Noted, and thanks again.

    Noted, and thanks again.

    Sadly, I can't imagine how one would ever determine the number of the 2,543 US Z8s that have been exported, unless one had access to the US Customs database or an equivalent source.

    Indeed I am willing to do that, and will commence immediately. This is exactly the head-start info I needed to begin such a project, even though it will take some time.

    And yes, I will gladly...
  29. Sticky: WOW. Amazing info. THANX! Is there a way to...

    WOW. Amazing info. THANX!

    Is there a way to correlate that data for exterior and interior color quantities per year, and to distinguish Z8 from Z8 Alpina with all the numbers?

    For example......

    I was hopeful; but if this community doesn't have that info, then I'd presume it isn't available.

    Is the overall breakdown for US exterior colors available? I've seen several scattered references...

    To clarify... What I'm looking for is the US totals of Z8 and Z8 Alpina by color (and by year, if available).
  33. Sticky: Z8 EU & US versus TOTAL PRODUCTION by color? (and year?)

    Are the US production/import numbers available by color and/or year (including Alpina exterior/interior combos)?

    Is there a break-down by color (and year) for EU totals and US totals of the Z8 and...
