The Alpina Z8

The Alpina Z8

That’s right, I am claiming it – the Alpina Z8 is going to turn into a classic.  Why?  Well it’s definitely not because of the engine.  It’s not going to be for the transmission either…  and no, changing the transmission to an automatic didn’t help.  Oh and did I mention there is a problem with the chassis distorting?

The reason why the Alpina Z8 is going to be a classic is for 3 reasons:

  • The Z8 was designed by the famous designer, Henry Fisker
  • The Z8 was in a James Bond movie
  • The Alpina Z8 is an exclusive version of the Z8

It’s a pretty simple formula: looks good, was in a movie and is tough to find.  In my books, this bad boy is going to be a classic and will be worth way more than it probably should be. 

After all this, would I buy one (if I had the cash)?  Hell yeah I would – I’d cruise it down Sunset or Ocean Drive in a second.
