    Z8 with 510 Miles being auctioned on Bring A Trailer

    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2003-bmw-z8-2/ Many of you may be familiar with the auction site BaT (Bring a Trailer) Lots of interesting collector cars sold on this site, with much dialog from the viewing community about the vehicles being sold.I came across this 510 mile red over black Z8, currently at $65k but 6 days left to run. As with most auctions, the real action happens in the last few hours, although the site re-sets the clock when there are last minute bids to prevent sniping. This car looks like an absolute gem, original owner with all the goodies. Anybody care to speculate on the final price? This one could go for all the money! Bill

    Currently @ 160k. I believe it will go over 220k.

    I assume the seller has a pretty stout reserve on this car, but if it meets reserve I would think a high $200's final price would be realistic. One sold this summer at Monterey for over $400k, this one would seemingly compare favorably with virtually any Z8 out there.Bill

    It would seem to me BaT is the wrong place to sell this car. Just about everything there seems to sell for a much lower price point; we’ll see.

    Like I thought, the Z8 topped out at $255k. BaT is the wrong venue for this car.

    What's wrong with $ 255,000?

    I would agree that with delivery mileage you should get closer to $300K. Even if the Z8 market has evened out. The Z8 is definitely a $150K - $250k car based on condition and mileage, but it not $300K car just yet. The Steve Jobs car is an exception because certain owners will always fetch some premium. BaT is where regular joe's are taking their obscure enthusiast cars to fetch above top dollar. That gimmick has allowed people to take advantage and pass of mediocre cars as must haves; and they're definitely causing a few bubble's with the 80s and 90s cars.

    2000 Red over black
    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    A similar mileage Z8 with a more “plain Jane” color combo fetched $440k in Monterey this summer.
