This summer’s Silverstone Classic (July 20th, 21st and 22nd) will feature the UK’s first ever BMW Z-Fest for owners and fans of the cars.
Organised by the official BMW Car Club GB as one of the highlights of its 60th birthday celebrations, Z-Fest will feature hundreds of the popular Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8 sports cars on display and in a parade lap on the full Silverstone grand prix circuit.
BMW introduced its two-seater Z1 in 1986 with the new badge standing for Zukunft, German for “future”. Only 8000 wer built and the Z1, which featured doors that dropped into its sills as they opened, became one of the rarest of all BMWs.
The Z1 was later superseded by the more mainstream z3 and z4.
Our favourite BMW Z-Series is the BMW Z8 roadster, as featured in James Bond. The BMW Z8 is a V8 engined, aluminium-chassised supercar, capable of 180 mph. Just 5702 were hand-built between 1999 and 2003.
