BMW’s fresh take on the iconic 507, powered by a 5-litre, 400-horsepower M5 engine. Pioneered at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show, this hand-built aluminum car initially disappointed in sales numbers, yet it skyrocketed in price as soon as production ended in 2003. A 375hp automatic version was made by Alpina, focused on long distance comfort driving, rather than pure performance, with the model’s unequivocally retro looks. A silver example made BMW’s debut as a ‘Bond Car’ in ‘The World is Not Enough’ (1999), starring Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007. Spoiler alert: not a film to watch if you are not a fan of beautiful cars being cut in half.
This rare European-specification Z8 is a single-family car since new. When relocating to Dubai for work reasons, one of the members of this family took all his cars with him to Dubai to drive and enjoy, eventually selling some of them to us.
While thoroughly original, it has been serviced extensively by us in late 2021: brakes, fluids, and some light cosmetics have all been sorted in our workshop to make this car the best it can be. Now showing under 17,000 kilometres, this exquisite Fisker design is now ready for its next custodian.
