You don’t need to travel back in time to buy a new BMW Z8

With only one owner and 1.662 kilometres on the clock, this BMW Z8 coming up for auction at The Collectables might just be the car you have been searching for, for two decades.

Inspired by the iconic BMW 507 and introduced to the world in the 1999 James Bond blockbuster “The World is not enough”, the BMW Z8 was destined to become a classic from the start. With its timeless silhouette designed by Henrik Fisker, a punchy 400 hp V8 engine under the hood and a manual six-speed gearbox, the Z8 is just as desirable and enjoyable today as it was two decades ago. If you missed the opportunity to buy an all-new BMW Z8 when it released at the turn of the millennium, here’s your second chance: With only one owner from new and a rather modest 1.662 kilometres on the clock, this black-on-black 2002 BMW Z8 is as good as new. “James Bond's Z8 was sawn in half with the help of a helicopter”, says the team behind the online auction house The Collectables from the Netherlands. “But this example was handled with a lot more care. The owner has always kept the car in the garage, covered in pillows to avoid any damage.” Estimated to sell for 215.000 to 250.000 Euro, this ultra-low-mileage BMW Z8 is waiting for it’s second owner at The Collectables’ live bidding platform. The online auction is ending on 13th September 2021, so better be quick to make your bid.
