NO RESERVE: 2000 BMW Z8

KEY FACTS

  • A superbly presented example of a rare modern classic cruiser, with low mileage and its original factory hardtop.
  • Power comes from a 4.9-litre ‘S62’ naturally aspirated V8, which is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.
  • Service history on record from the US via Carfax and from the UK, with the most recent maintenance at 18,083 miles.
  • Purchased new from Europe but federalised before delivery. Imported from the US to the UK and re-registered on 5 May 2017

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • While it left the factory in European specification, it was federalised in early 2001 by G&K Auto Conversion in Santa Ana, California; and this is described within a letter from the second owner in the file.
  • In 2017, the car’s original red leather interior was removed, and a black interior was sourced from another Z8 with just 3,000 miles on the odometer. This work was carried out by main dealer Soper BMW in Lincoln.
  • When the vendor acquired the car, he had the exhaust system upgraded to a GTHaus system ordered from the US.
  • The factory hardtop and stand are present, along with a car cover, special BMW Z8 booklet, and the roof tonneau cover.
  • Accompanying the car is the original handbook and service booklet in the dark blue leather pouch, plus numerous invoices relating to work in the US and UK, and photos of the car when the red interior was still in place. The original exhaust system is also included.

CONDITION

  • No known body damage.
  • Paintwork is in excellent condition, and is believed to be all original.
  • The black leather upholstery is in very good order, benefiting from being substituted from an even lower-mileage car.
  • The original protective film is still in place on the BMW-branded door sill kick plates.
  • There are no known faults, and all of the switchgear currently works as it should.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 4 September 2020 at 18,091 miles, which was a clean pass with no advisories whatsoever.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • The most recent service was carried out in September 2019 at 18,083 miles, with Soper BMW Lincoln carrying out an engine oil change, and also renewing the brake fluid.
  • In October 2002, its steering rack was replaced, along with the left and right side engine mounts, and the valve cover gaskets.
