I think I've seen this same one in Newmarket last summer. Why an automatic box I'll never know.

it's actually a bored and strocked version of the "single" Vano 4.4l V8 to a displacement of 4.8l. Alpina also has the same engine on E39 B10 V8.

reason Alpina detune by using softer suspension, less powerful engine (yet more torque), and automatic transmssion was becasue they wanted make the car appeal to other group of buyers than Z8 had.

because let's face it, not every wealthy car buyers are hardcore enough for the Z8.

id say 95% of ferrari owners just buy it cause it looks cool

not cause it drives well

i think thats true for every high end exotic cars, same for z8

There is an Alpina Z8 sitting in the showroom at maranello bmw in woodbridge. It has 3000km and i believe it is 179,000. Anyways it is a cool car but a detuned automatic, meh. The 20 inch rims are absolutely beautiful though.
