Here we have a classic on our hands, a 1999–2003 BMW Z8 roadster fixed up by the guys at Senner Tuning. The German based aftermarket company decided to give a small performance package to increase the numbers even further. Stock, the BMW Z8 holds the E39 M5 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. With the Senner Tuning additions of a new air filter, custom exhaust, and ECU tune to bring it all together, new figures show 450 HP and 535 Nm of torque. While these modifications weren’t really necessary, the small sports car can now hit a top speed in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph.
To improve the BMW roadsters handling, Senner hooked it up with a Variant 2 Inox-Line coilover kit that are fully adjustable and also include a new front strut bar for extra stiffness. While the factory BMW Z8 wheels are just fine in our opinion, Senner Tuning thought different and installed 19-inch Schwert SC1 alloy wheels wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires. They measure up to be 255/40R19 at the front, and 285/35R19 at the rear. Underneath the new rims and tires you will notice Racing Gold varnished brake calipers for an extra custom look. Pricing for this Senner Tuning BMW Z8 package comes in at €18,900 or around US $24,500.
