Thread: The Z8 Coupe

    The Z8 Coupe

    The new issue of Roundel breaks a story that all of us at the 10 year celebrations in Munich had been sworn to keep secret for a decade now.

    Hopefully we'll get a PDF of the Roundel to share with the full story soon, so I'll let that to go into the deep details. Essentially this was one of just two 500hp prototypes the BMW built, and revealed it to us with great excitement but sworn secrecy at the 10 Anniversary Gala Dinner at the BMW Museum that Jürgen and Sylvi Wunderlich arranged when they were running the Z8 Club.

    This is how the car was presented when we arrived, and it stayed this way all through the dinner.

    And here's what we saw after they removed the cover after dinner. The lighting was pretty atrocious for a black car, and clashes badly with the well sculpted lines, but you get the idea none the less.

    Fantastic car. What a shame it was never put into production.

    ..and US Taillights to boot. A lot more tailored than our removable hardtops, and wow, that rear glass continuation of the bubble!

    Would have been interesting to see it with a rear quarter window... seems odd without it. Photoshop?
