what do you mean "they still sell those"?

they're not 180K, just a tad bit over 100K, rare cars. production stopped in 2003 I think.

There are not lots of these around trust me. Most of you are probably seeing Z3M's not Z8's. Theres quite the difference between the two, in powertrain and in price. The Z8 shares the S62 with the M5.

Ive personally only ever seen 2. One at Brian Jessel which was for sale IIRC 130K for a 2000 Z8. There is a guy in White Rock who owns a 00/01 Z8. There were only approximately 5700 made world wide. Half made it to USA.

Looks are to each his own. Personally I think they look neat, but i wouldnt drop 100K on one. They were based off the z07 concept which was based off the 507.

There is quite a few of them around in Vancouver. I personally know of at least 10-12.

I used to work at Jessel at point, saw around 5 there, for service mostly.

I think I read that in a car magazine too, uses the X5 engine and turbo/supercharged I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong
