Hexagon are very pleased to offer a fine example of the collectable BMW Z8, looking rather wonderful with its classic Titanium Silver metallic paintwork.
The Z8’s retro looks were inspired by the stunning BMW 507 of the Fifties. The BMW Z8 (E52) roadster was produced between 1999 and 2003 in very small numbers. Originally designed by Henrik Fisker, as an homage to Albrecht von Goertz‘s wonderful BMW 503 and 507’s of the 1950’s. The Z8 was produced almost unchanged from the Z07 concept show car that had caused a sensation when shown by BMW at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show.
Amongst many novel design firsts, side-mounted turn indicators were integrated into the side vents in a fashion that rendered them invisible until activated. The vintage simplicity of the interior was preserved by hiding the modern equipment under retracting panels. Complex compound curves were preserved using an expensive MIG-welded aluminium space frame. The Z8’s spaceframe was produced in the Dingolfing BMW plant and the car was hand-finished in Munich. The tail lights and indicators are powered by neon tubes that offer quicker activation than standard lightbulbs and are expected to last for the life of the vehicle. Due to the limited volume of Z8 production, all elements of the car were constructed or finished by hand.
Built in limited numbers, Z8 roadsters are becoming increasingly difficult to find with low mileage, and Hexagon are extremely privileged to offer this stunning car. A great investment for the future without question. Our stunning Z8 will be supplied with a new MOT and a 12-month warranty.
