BMW Z8 details:
The BMW Z8 was a convertible supercar automobile manufactured by BMW from 2000 to 2003. It was given the E52 BMW model code.
The BMW Z8 originated from a prototype designated Z07, which was developed by Henrik Fisker at BMW's Designworks in Southern California. It was showcased at the Tokyo Auto Show in 1997. The vehicle was originally developed as a look-and-feel exercise to both echo and celebrate the BMW 507 of the 1950s for its 50th birthday.
The overwhelming popularity of the prototype show-car led to the decision to put the vehicle into limited production, to be designated BMW Z8. The vehicle was featured in the James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough in late 1999. It also featured in a number of video games. About 5700 BMW Z8s were built, with about half of them exported to the USA.
