BMW Z8 (2000-2003)

In developing the Z8, BMW designers were challenged to imagine what the original 507 would be like if it had never ceased production and had evolved over four decades. The $128,000 car had an all aluminum chassis and body and used a 4.9 L (4941 cc) 32-valve V8, that developed 400 hp. 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) time of 4.7 seconds. Each Z8 was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with rear defroster. Only 5,703 were built. (wikipedia)
