This new edition of BMW's contemporary classic roadster is sure to raise eyebrows. A Z8
with an automatic transmission, powered not by the BMW M engine, but rather by a
specially developed, higher-performance version of BMW's "regular" V-8 engine and
featuring 20-inch wheels and tires in place of the original model's 18-inchers. A very
special car indeed.
This new Z8 is not only from BMW, but also from ALPINA. ALPINA was established in 1964 as
an official and approved "ennobler" of BMW automobiles. Their tradition is to take
production BMWs and make them even more appealing to connoisseurs of automotive finery.
