The Z8 is a bit of a wallflower these days, its handsome looks appreciated by those who remember when it hit the roads but a less eye-grabbing than the ultra-faceted and streaked cars coming out 12 years later. Even to the trained eye, they don’t show up that often, and it seems like a lot of owners are hiding them away in the hopes of selling them for more later. I still get excited when they do come out of their garages, and the today’s silver example reminds me of the sunny afternoon drive 7 years ago that shifted my opinion on convertibles. Structural rigidity be damned, there’s nothing wrong with having your ears a few unobstructed feet from the S62’s rumble.

This Z8 runs excellent and is collector owned and driven. Photos taken August 20th and happy to shoot anything specific you request. Inspections welcomed.
As I am sure you are aware the Z8 is hugely in an appreciation mode. There were only 5,703 Z8s built, 3,160 in for Europe and 2,543 for the USA.
I’m not sure these are as “hugely” in appreciation mode, and the conflict between the ad copy and the actual price reflect that. Still, with just 33k miles, this is a nice example that, should you want to, you could drive without too much concern. Unfortunately, though, it seems like the majority of the people that bought this car when it was new are the people that buy it now, and they are not drivers. A shame, because once you throw the “super car/boulevard cruiser?” nitpicking out, these are fun and gorgeous cars that should be enjoyed.
