    I think the people on the right must be working on an S62 V8....

    It’s me. )) (Former Andrew’s car)
    It is not an individual. It is a Topaz/Crema. But I did a wrap (individual style) just for the Gumball 3000 rally.
    I’ll send Andrew some more photos to post.

    What a great idea! I really think both colors match perfectly! Congrats.

    I do agree with you. I’m fully in love with the way it looks.
    I’m planning on redoing the same wrap, but in a proper high quality wrap as soon as the car returns from the rally.

    Are those two cars Individual? https://www.autogespot.be/nl/bmw-z8-2/2019/08/21 (the headrests are red) https://m.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/detail...utm_medium=ios(the doors and the back of the seats for instance are not red but black).

    Hi Ben, no Individual, merely a "change" of doorcards and headrests. Sometimes a cheap and easy solution for a damaged leather part or just "taste" ;-)

    Ok. I like the red interior with less red and more black in it. Just like the crema interior is a bit too crema for me.

    Beautiful, never heard of these. How many were made? Andrew, was this like Evies car? Don’t remember “midnight blue” Arizona leather?

    Z8 is a stunner in any/every color. True sign of a classic design.

    I thought it was 1 of 1?

    boy, if it had a red interior 😍

    Ian, yes, that's the same as Evie's car, which as you remember really wasn't that attractive in the flesh. The Blue was too dark and the Arizona Sun too diarrhea.

    2112, five of them were made in those colors for the Canadian market, so it's a one of five, all of which had US VIN's, and there were also 6 US VIN Alpina Blue and Crema Alpinas imported into Canada at the same time.

    There's a bunch of shots of Evie's old car in the old Gallery here - https://www.bmwz8.us/galleryclr.php?...ID=1209&page=5

    (she sold it a couple of years back, and promised to donate something to the site for all the help I'd given her with it, but never did. I guess that's what you get from a girl with a crappy interior! )

    Ha! No accounting for taste! Old Aston almond green was what I always wanted. Perhaps with something darker than crema, but definitely not Arizona. More bomber jacket brown... with all the distressing! Or maybe Bordeaux.

    Thanks Ton, that's fun to know, and Ian, absolutely, I remember seeing that gorgeous early racing Aston with you at the Historics at Laguna Seca. That color with a faded camel-nut brown interior would have been awesome on the Z8, and I always thought that the Shelby-Brooks Daytona blue with its deep metal flake would have really accentuated the lines of the Z8 too.

    Andrew, I seem to recall that there was one more of those Midnight/Arizona cars originally built for Mario Theisen then head of Motorsports. In fact, I seem to remember that was the inspiration for the Canadian cars. Does that ring true?

    I know that Mario Theisen had a Z8, but I don't remember the rest of the story, but I also don't remember what I had for lunch yesterday, so I'd say if it's in your memory then it made enough of an impression to remain there, so it must be so.

    I do remember that the chap who ordered the cars while he was at BMW Canada (Manfred I think it was?) vanished without a trace and seemingly under something of a cloud. I tried to reach him to do an interview for the site about those cars, but in trying I uncovered the story of his departure and discovered he wasn't considered a hero by BMW AG. That said he did leave a rare marker of his presence with those interestingly colored cars with US VINs.

    Don Johnson? Ha! Not my thing.

    Funny thing is that white is the most popular car color in the US now, and also classically Germany's national racing color, so it would have made sense to have had a white Z8, but not with a white dash!

    Nice hand position, however. Particularly cool in an F150. I had dinner with Dr. Theisen (one S or two?) in Indianapolis at the Formula 1 race (which makes it 2007, I think). I asked him to name his favorite BMW. "My Z8," he said with no hesitation whatsoever. Mind you, this was years before I even imagined owning an "M5 roadster."

    I bought a 1:43 scale model of the white "Safety Car". It says it was built for the 2001 Motorcycle World Championship. I have about a dozen different metal models of Z8s. And a 507. Memorabilia for the Z8 is fun to collect. Always looking for more if you have something available.
