These collector's items are the ultimate roadster Autobahn cruiser.
From 1999 to 2003, one of the best-looking vehicles rolling off the production lines at BMW was the gorgeous Z8 roadster. This car was so striking and unusual for its time, that it even became 007's ride in James Bond flick The World is Not Enough. Equipped with the E39 M5's 4.9-liter V8 and 400 horsepower, it also had the sound and power to back up its looks. But for buyers looking to cruise the Autobahn with more style and less bang, there was also the Alpina Z8.
This Alpina was equipped with a 4.6-liter V8, making 381 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. Alpina also gave the Z8 an automatic 5-speed and a softer suspension. Like all Alpina products, it was meant as a niche vehicle, with only 555 units produced and 444 imported to the US. Now, five of these units are being offered for sale by the same Ohio dealer, Marshall Goldman. And despite being the less-powerful, more elegant model, they don't come cheap: the five units are priced from $359,000 to $378,000. But if settling for the 'downgraded' performance model isn't for you, there is also a 2002 Z8 model on the lot with your name on it.
