Hmm, the Z8.

A certain someone (you probably all know of him) I see almost every week where I work owns a BMW Z8. It really is a unique and beautiful car, and quite fast (they say that the torque allows it to accelerate faster than a 360).

I think I like the unique shape most. It's quite cool -- I don't know if I'd take it over a Ferrari or not, but I'd think about it.

The Z8 has the same engine as the M5. Performance is good, but it is not in the same league as a 360 or 430.

I've liked the Z8s from the first time I saw one, lots of little styling throw backs to the 507, another car I love the design of. It'd be a good, maybe not daily driver, but a car to drive a bit more frequently than the Ferrari. Don't see too many on the road so a unique aspect to owning one.

I always thought the car was over priced for what you get. Is it really worth 100k new? I don't think so.

I actually think that the torque does allow for better acceleration than the 360.

Driver pleasure & gratification

Z8 may or may not accelerate better than others, but personally speaking, it is all academic...when you are above certain level of specs & stats. Driving pleasures & gratifications consist of many factors and we all react differently. I do not drag race nor do I care if a car next to me can out-accelerate me. These arguments do not interest me very much. Jimmy

Acceleration is a huge part of an argument. The car handles greatly.
