Back in 2000, BMW introduced a new roadster with a V8 powertrain, and it was quite popular. Today, we wanted to highlight this vintage vehicle as we’ve currently got one for sale right here in North Miami Beach FL. The vehicle? A 2000 BMW Z8 Hardtop. Incredibly enough, this 19-year-old vehicle has only ever had one owner, and it’s only been driven a little under 11,000 miles. That’s pretty incredible and shows just how dependable and incredible this vehicle is. If you’re in the market for a 2-seat convertible, you should definitely consider this classic.

Specs & Features
Constructed with an all-aluminum chassis and body, the Z8 is powered by a 4.9L S62 V8 engine that made it capable of generating 395 horsepower alongside 369 pound-feet of torque. That kind of power, combined with its 50/50 weight distribution, enables the Z8 to get up to 60 miles per hour in just 4.1 seconds. In addition, back at the turn of the century, Car & Driver tested the vehicle and found that it was capable of outperforming the then-benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in a number of the most important performance states, including acceleration, braking, and even handling.
Some of the features that were employed in the construction of the BMW Z8 include neon exterior lighting, multifunction controls, a color-matching metal hardtop with stand and rear defroster, and much more. Only 5,703 of these vehicles were produced over its four years of production in Munich, making this a pretty rare vehicle in addition to being impressive on multiple fronts.
