    ...for second hand sale price, over £200k at an auction.

    http://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk...test-classic-car-auction-commentary-06112015/

    From the article:
    A French registered BMW Z8 with 4-litre 400bhp V8 only run for 27,500 road kilometres since new in 2000 established a new world auction record price for this model of 280,720 euros (£210,540 including premium plus TVA) during last Sunday’s Artcurial sale in Paris. In an unpatriotic break from promoting Aston Martins, Licenced to Kill James was equipped with one of these Bavarian Roadsters as a company car in ‘the World is Not Enough’.


    So what's the chances a 1.9 the same spec as 007 drove will be worth 50k in a few years!!

    They are a stunning car in my opinion. If money wasn't an issue I'd definitely have one in the garage next to reggie. Does anyone know how much they were new?

    Yes Bond they squeezed another 488 BHP out of that engine to give it 888 BHP, Now that's what i call tuning.

    Blimey you'd have double plus some $$$ if you'd have taken the plunge.
