Anyone who is a little bit concerned with the BMW brand knows for sure how rare a BMW Z8 E52 is! In three years (March 2000 until July 2003) BMW produced only 5703 vehicles by hand. The 555 limited Alpina models (381PS) are already included. The open retro vehicle, which with its wide BMW kidney grille and side air intakes should be reminiscent of the BMW 507 (1956-1959) came with the 400 hp 5,0-liter V8 engine from the then BMW E39 M5 and enabled the driver to do so Sprint to 100 km / h in just 4,7 seconds. And back then there were no highly complicated automatic transmissions with eight gears or more, the Z8 was stirred in the classic way using a manual six-speed gearbox. And the guys from Wheelsboutique from Miami, in the USA, had just such an exclusive Z8 on site. The roadster should have a discreetly refined style without falling out of the ordinary. Anything else about this vehicle would be a farce! Wheels Boutique implemented its order perfectly and should have lived up to the owner's claim. The Z8 got a set of HRE Performance Wheels S207 alloy wheels in 21 inches front and rear as well as a completely new brake system from Brembo. The new brake system impresses with its red brake calipers and large perforated brake discs at the front and rear.
powerful braking system from Brembo
The new alloy wheels give a clear view of the brake, which underlines the sporty restraint of the vehicle. So that the convertible does not stand upright was still a KW coilover suspension variant 2 installed. The lowering should be good 50 mm front and 40 mm back and can of course be changed upwards and downwards further. So far, we have just under 12.000 reports on tuningblog.eu only Another modified Z8 seen, but this was already in July 2015 and also then the Z8 was placed on a set of HRE Performance Wheels. So now there is a second one and with this configuration it is also our personal favorite. There isn't much more to say about the current vehicle, so we'll leave it with the pictures. If we get more information about other modifications to the Z8, there is of course, as always, an update for this post.
