Such a stunningly gorgeous vehicle! I've only ever seen one in person years ago in California, but it really is a head-turner. I especially love it in Alpina form, with the gorgeous rims that actually match up quite well to the steering wheel's design.

There is a purple / tan interior one floating around Toronto somewhere. The (then?) owner had a few dealerships including a BMW dealership. I saw it once after his dealership reopened after a lengthy renovation - was an invite party for the grand reopening and they had a few special cars onsite including his Z8. I seem to recall it being valued ~250kCAD? Not sure if I had heard correctly. In any case, beautiful vehicle

I know there wasn't really a business case to build it, but the coupe concept sure was gorgeous

The DB5 used for stunt driving in that video (last car) is running an S54 and likely a 420G.

A master piece for sure, I always wondered if the designer was influenced by the e-type Jag.
