Delivery-mileage BMW Z8 emerges from single ownership

When the original owner of this BMW Z8 collected it from the dealership in 2001, he drove it home, parked it in a climate-controlled garage, and never drove it again. He never even put the roof down. Unbelievably, it’s now for sale in the Classic Driver Market…

Time warp

Fifteen original miles show on the odometer of this Triple Black BMW Z8 — surely the lowest of any example on the planet. And Classic Driver dealer Carriage House Motor Cars in Connecticut, USA, reckons it’s one of the most remarkable discoveries it’s made in the last 48 years of business. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but of course, foresight is even better — did the original owner predict that demand for rare modern supercars in completely original condition would be worth a pretty penny one day? Regardless of the reason, the car is now being offered for sale, which begs the question, will the second owner choose to preserve the car in its current time-warp state or actually use and enjoy this ultimate driving machine as its designers and engineers originally intended?
