A Smart Buy. (If You Have The Cash)


If you ask most people if investing in cars is a bad idea, they would say no. However, there are some cars that are worth investing in, and one of them is this BMW Z8. In this picture is 1 of 400 that exist in the United States, which makes this vehicle a rare gem. So much so that the Z8’s were in such high demand that all 400 were sold-out before hitting Unites States' shores. Unlike most cars, the Z8 appreciates in value. What else makes it rare is it has a naturally- aspirated engine (no turbo and no supercharger). As time moves forward, car companies are building their engines to become more efficient (Environmental pressure and fuel economy). The Z8 shares an engine and exhaust with the BMW E39 M5 and other parts from the 7 Series. There is a version of the Z8 from BMW’s partner Alpina that is even more exclusive and more powerful. Alpina tune’s the engine and upgrades most of the car from the engine to the interior and exterior accents.

I maybe dating myself, but I remember seeing this car in a Bond film “The World Is Not Enough”. The Z8 was designed by Henrick Fisker (Aston Martin's, & Fisker Karma). Seeing one of these was pretty cool (Of course I saw this Z8 at Whole Foods).
