The hard top of current generation BMW Z8 models has been altered to a single dome design, which has truncated convex back and a tapered faring. However, when you consider the overall design of the 2010 Z8, despite all these alterations, Z8 remains highly faithful to whatever was mentioned when it was showcased as a concept car last year. The turn indicators, which are mounted on the side of the car, are integrated into the side vents in a manner that rendered them invisible until they are activated in the current generation models.
The interior’s vintage simplicity of 2010 BMW Z8 has been preserved by making the modern equipment invisible under the retracting panels. It has a body and chassis, which is wholly made up of aluminum. A 5L 32 valve V8 engine has been utilized in these models, which can develop a power of 400 hp and torque of 500 N-m.
The engine of the car has been built by the subsidiary of BMW motor sport and it also shares the same platform with the E39 M5. The engine of the car was placed behind the axle at the front to provide the car with the weight distribution of 50/50.
Now, it’s about time that the 2010 Z8 models create a reverberating impact in the market, and it is definitely going to be one of the unique concepts from the house of BMW. There are several other competitors such as 2010 Mercury Mariner, Maserati GranTurismo S, and the likes of them, which will be hitting the market alongside the BMW Z8, but none of them are going to be direct competitors of the Z8, due to its unique capabilities and styling.
