New the car was £80k and I find it fascinating that in these turbulent times the Z8 seems to be an extremely sort-after motor car with values seemingly rocketing. And for that I say Amen.
Well done to all those that took the plunge and purchased the wonderful open topped cruiser and "damn, another money making opportunity missed" for those of us that shunned the idea some years back when a tidy example was in the mid £50k region

Timeless cars, just what is it that makes a classic classic and how come it's not possible to see it when the car is first introduced?

Now there's a much wider offering on the above combination from the likes of the Weismann 6 & indeed V10 variants, plus the Morgan Aero and of course the fast depreciating Italian V8's coming for much less money, I have to confess to having taken the Z8 off my lottery list!
Anyway, why would you want a 2 seater in the first place?
