There is a silver Z8 here in St. Johnís Newfoundland that Iíve seen driving around a few times now and a couple of times at the local dealer for service. Gorgeous machine indeed.

Meh none of them can be driven remotely compared to the BMW 7er!

Just look at 007's face.

Every time I see the Z8 I think of the time Clarkson drove it mentioning how it was a terrible ride and had the turning circle of a cruise liner.

You mean the Alpina Z8 review? I got to say it looks quite good in Alpina green

Still one of my favorite looking BMW's inside and out. I don't think they're worth what people are asking for them though.

These Z8 were a common sight in South Florida when new. Sat in many of them. 20 years later still a fantastic vehicle.

Correct. Z8 was never a hardcore sports car. It was mostly a boulevard 2 seater drop top.

I drove this Bond car while it was with us for a promo shoot.
It was a fun car to drive if a little tight in the driving seat for over 6 footers.
