Buy looking at the images of the car at auction listing, it seems it’s a brand new car and hardly used, this is because the owner is taking great care of it since he owned it, it only has a millage of 15,200 miles after driving for 17 years.
There is one more thing included with the auctioned car, BMW-branded Motorola cellphone, Steve Jobs reportedly hated this phone. The BMW Z8 originally cost $128,000 before add-ons, the used models are potentially worth more, but as it has a significant value in terms of ownership the auction price is quite hefty.
At the “New York Icons” event, the car would be available for bidding on December 6.
