Hey readers!

These days, I keep spotting BMW Z8's more and more often. This rare car shows up in my neighborhood quite alot nowadays, strange. Today I spotted the 4th and the 5th in 3 days time. I didn'n have my camera on me so I couldnt take any pics/vids sadly :(.

A bit of information about the BMW Z8.

2001 BMW Z8

The BMW Z8 was a roadster car produced by German automaker BMW from 2000-2003. It was given the E52 BMW model code.

The $128,000 car had an all aluminum chassis and body and used a 4.9 L (4941 cc) 32-valve V8, that developed 400 hp (300 kW) and 500 N·m (370 ft·lbf) torque. This engine, known internally as the S62, was built by the BMW Motorsport subsidiary and was shared with the E39 M5.[1] The engine was located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with 50/50 weight distribution. The factory claimed a 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) time of 4.7 seconds; Motor Trend magazine achieved 0–96 km/h (0–60 mph) in 4.2 seconds. Road and Track measured the car's lateral grip at .92. Car and Driver magazine also tested the car and found that it outperformed the contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in three important performance categories: acceleration, handling, and braking. As with most BMW products, its top speed was electronically limited to 155.4 mph (250 km/h); the car's maximum top speed with an unlocked chip was 186 mph (299 km/h)
