I know what it is, and the hood emblum is evident, but this is one very rare car. The guy who owns it lives a few streets away from me, but here it is.

BMW Z8, as seen in a James Bond movie i belive, they are quite rare and were very expensive, a bit of a sales flop actually.

BMW Z8, powered by a 4.9 V8 pushing some 394 horses. A weaker Alpina package was available with a 375 horse V8. Only made 2000-2003

Its a BMW Z8. Fast cars and expensive as hell. It was a limited production car so I think that is why it was so expensive

As I recall BMW guaranteed owners that original parts would be available from the factory until at least 2050 or something like that, in an attempt to assure the cars would be "classics".

You're all right. Now I gotta find the guy and get a ride. I'm afraid it may cost some head, but worth it. ;)

Yup, they were around $180,000 Canuck! there was a restaurant owner here and he ordered one and part of the sale was it had to remain in the showroom for a few weeks so everyone could finally see one. I took some good pics, if I can find them.....nice silver-blue color.

Actually one of our forum members here owns one in Switzerland, Pascal.....

The sad thing about the Z8 is that the performance did not meet the price. For what it cost, there were better vehicles out there from British, American, and Italian automakers.

A small price to pay to be "Exclusive" and truly "limited." THAT makes them special.

If it was good enough for James Bond, it was good enough for many.....

Was that "The World is Not Enough?" 1999? The first part of that movie was good, but the last half bored me.

Now Constantine, was Awsome! :shhh: :p

I think he was in a Toyota only once in "You Only Live Twice" (1967) and it wasn't even his car, from what I recall, it was his Japanese contacts'.

I can see him in a Continental GT, with the appropriate modifications. ;)

Yes, i didn't think it was the norm for swarve British guys like bond and I to drive Toyotas....

While underwater in a hybrid jet-boat gunship. :shhh: :sneaky: That was a cool scene.

BTW, did you know that a Canadian company built that little jet boat (and build many for other purposes) for "The World is Not Enough." :shhh: :)

I don't know, but you can always go to Montreal and take a jet-boat tour for cheap..........and then "Happy Hour" at St. Pauls' Pub.

It's only a one-seater, but Supa and I will "squeeze in" just nicely. :D :drinker

I dunno, James Bond isn't much of a spy in my opinion. He drives a flashy car, stands out everywhere he goes. The key to being a spy is staying unnoticed. My all time favorite spy is Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series games. He's 8 times more bad ass.

Exactly, and another thing I could never make sense of is that he goes around using his REAL NAME!!! "Hello, my name is Bond, James Bond." :suspense: :helpless: So much for secret identities. :shhh: :p Or secret agents protecting their identities.

I'd still like to know what type of pistol that is from that promotional pic. Dr. No?? It looks like an air gun. :helpless:

The cool thing about Snake is he's got even cooler gadgets than Bond! Snake's got the internal radar he uses to spot guards in the area before he even sees them, introvenus nanomachines that administer curative medicines directly into his blood stream, and he communicates with the Codec, a tiny little device that directly stimulates the small bones of his ear so only he can hear it. The whole MGS back story is fascinating, PM me Ralph if you wanna hear the rest. I can go on for pages.

Ralph
07-22-05, 04:13 AM
I know, I used to play that game for ps1, and it was incredible back then!! As good as Resident Evil 2.

The 2 way communication with the Codec was impressive, etc. Taking diazapan to calm the nerves to shoot straight...fighting tanks by throwing gernades at it in the snow......

But Bond got the girls and he took showers more often. :devil: :cool:

LOL, she was the best part of the game, that and the excellent graphics and smooth gameplay.
