Every time I see the Z8 I think of the time Clarkson drove it mentioning how it was a terrible ride and had the turning circle of a cruise liner.

You mean the Alpina Z8 review? I got to say it looks quite good in Alpina green

Still one of my favorite looking BMW's inside and out. I don't think they're worth what people are asking for them though.

These Z8 were a common sight in South Florida when new. Sat in many of them. 20 years later still a fantastic vehicle.

Correct. Z8 was never a hardcore sports car. It was mostly a boulevard 2 seater drop top.

I drove this Bond car while it was with us for a promo shoot.
It was a fun car to drive if a little tight in the driving seat for over 6 footers.

Absolutely love the Z8! Grew up with a neighbor down the street who dailied one for years. Saw it less and less over time. When I visit home I'll see him around town every once and a while now a days, still getting loved!

Pierce was supposed to be bond like 15 years earlier, but was locked in the Remington Steel contract. It was kind of a consolation prize for the Bond enterprise to get him at all for a couple films. Yes, they were ridiculous. It seems like that’s what always happens when they run out of good content or writing.

James Bond’s “No Time to Die” Aston Martin DB5 is S54 M Powered

A bit of trivia!
