    Power Z8

    Good Morning,

    Iím curently negotiate a vehicle 78 (deliverd in 2001).
    This has a short mile (7000). The car like brand new.
    The vehicle had engine preparation in 2002 by a German company (Evo kit 2 Z8 by WIESMANN), 400 > 465 HP.
    Can you tell me if this transformation can be a brake if one day I have to sell it.
    Thank you for your feedback.
    Best
    Eric

    Can you provide some detail as to what modifications were made? I googled Wiesmann Evo and could not find anything pertaining to the Z8. If your question "could this transformation be a "brake" if you sell" means will it adversely affect value, my answer would be "it depends". My sense is the Z8 marketplace values originality over modified (especially for a low mile, pristine car), the big exception being Dinan upgrades. Other common upgrades such as brakes and exhaust probably don't affect value much, especially if the original components stay with the car when sold. Just my opinion, of course.

    Honestly I think with such low mileage it will make no difference at all, and I tend to think as time goes forward some of the well period specific upgraded ones will have equal to more value as they tend to be more fun to drive.
