With the 1995 film Goldeneye, James Bond got rid of his trademark Aston Martin and was given a BMW Z3 by Q.
For the following two films, Bond was back in BMWs. His last ride in one of the German machines came in The World Is Not Enough and this car, the BMW Z8.
Our good friend Brian L. spotted this Z8 on 18th Street between 6th and 7th here in Manhattan. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled since that isn’t too far from the Business Insider world headquarters.
The styling is meant to be a modern interpretation of the classic BMW 507 and it has power courtesy of the M5’s V8. This is really one BMW to lust after.
