C.E. - The Free Weekly Online Car Magazine

The 1999 London Motor Show

by Shane O' Donoghue / Mark Sims


On arriving at the BMW stand, I fully expected to see the new Z8 sports car as the centrepiece, with barely room to photograph it. However, the crowd of people were around the silly looking new C1 scooter/car hybrid thingy. The Z8 was positioned outside the show, at the entrance itself! Pierce Brosnan was nowhere to be seen either... (the Z8 is the star car of the latest Bond movie)
BMW UK Web Site The BMW Z8 was heavily influenced by the gorgeous BMW Z07. Click for full story.
