Alpina Roadsters are super rare in Europe. There were only 555 built in total, with 450 of those being sold in America and 8 being sold in the UK, so with only about 100 of them in the rest of the world, you're really lucky to have seen even one.

I have seen a few Alpina Roadsters already, that's why I never knew they are rare. Seeing a Corvette is actually not as usual as spotting a Z8 in Munich haha :D

There are only about 2,500 Z8s in America, and they've exploded in value so they're rarely driven anymore.

@vwup I highly doubt you've ever seen an Alpina Roadster which is different from a BMW Z8

lol it's amazing how you guys consider this an exotic. There are so many of them in Munich, i don't even bother taking photos anymore xD Way too expensive and not even a good looking car. But nice to know they're so rare in the US :D

Never really understood the point of the Alpina. Slower and equipped with the wrong transmission. Still, it's pretty rare and is hard to spot on the streets!

Not just any Z8. This is an Alpina Roadster, 1 of only 555 produced worldwide
