    Ford v. Ferrari and people seeing Z8 exlaiming "looks like a modern Cobra!"

    Has anyone else experienced this? Although the movie just came out, more than once now, I've been driving the Z8 and people from the sidewalks have yelled how they "love" the car, "what is it?" and "looks like a modern Cobra from the movie Ford v. Ferrari.

    You've got to start hopping in and out of the car like Damon did in the movie! The last yell I got was "nice Z8"!

    I can understand how an observer would see a Z8 as the modern interpretation of a Cobra.

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

    The last yell I got was from a gorgeous lady walking down the street with her dog, who said, "I love your car." Life with a Z8 is good

    I get this most time without fail either from people on the sidewalks or at the traffic lights " Wow what a beautiful car .. is this the latest BMW model?" People were just gobsmacked when I told them this is a 2003 year car. Yes, life is Good with Alpina Z8 and the only one RHD in the world.

    I do get the "Nice Z8" every now and then, but most often the question is: Is that a new BMW?
