BMW Z8.....What A Drive!

Tue Nov 20, 2001 5:36 pm

I have never really been inspired by the shape of the car and i would much rather pay some more and get the Ferrari 360 modena or even get the Porcshe twin turbo(for less).....infact few weeks ago another kid i know got the BMW Z8 and i couldnt figure out why he choose it when he could have gotten the Modena or the turbo....having said that i did always respect the car itself......its a BMW with 400 bhp V8 with loads of torque.
Couple of days ago i drove a friends(not the same person who recently got it) BMW Z8. Let me just say that my respect for the car went up by geometric proportions. My word....does the car go or what. I drove it with the top on and once you floor the accelerator the car rockets with great power and engine noise. The feel of the car is beautiful......very very BMWish....excellent grip and i loved how the steering behaved. The car has a beautiful six gear manual transmission. The car explodes from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and the top speed like all BMW's and Mercedes is electronically limited to 155 mph. The price is about $130,000-$140,000 but this guy got it for close to $170,000 a few months ago(US prices). It is the fastest car i have driven but its much more then that....alot of cars are fast in a straight line but have no handling....the Z8 is really one heck of a driving machine.

Yes, i know it is a magnificent car. I like the button you press for ignition. its a little too modern for me. I cant wait till the new 7 series comes out to see the 745 and 760!!

Yup i liked that ignition button.....nice big button. The new 7 series is one heck of a high tech car with really nice interior....typical of BMW. But i would always have the S-class over it......S-class with AMG package....i love it.
