Never saw one before and I have been to hundreds of VW. Shows,

 I wonder if it was built in Europe or ?

This morning, I thought I saw an NB Miata coming my way. As it got closer, I thought it was an Aston Martin, which would have been the second AM of the day (because Connecticut).
 

As it passed, I knew both guesses were wrong. I recognized the car, but it took about two hours of sorting through my memory bank to figure out what it was. 
 

Qvale Mangusta. 
 

Only 284 produced.

Yes. My buddies and I designed it and built 3 of them. Sold a few as kits.

What was the purpose of the Z8?

All I remember is, 1) James Bond 2) iirc reviews said overpriced/unexceptional for the cost 3) imo, ugly. 4) I think there was speculation about it being a collectible investment (but I thought used prices dropped in the following years). Asking prices are currently $180-240k on ebay. Just BMW blowing money for marketing/reinventing themselves? It was around the bangle transition, and intro to SUVs.

The Top Gear review was favorable IIRC. I've always thought the non-alpina version was a good looking and cool GT car.

In reply to tremm :

I never cared for the rear, but the front to me looks really good. The headlights remind me of the Uhlenhaut Mercedes 300 SLR.

Spotted at a red light.

Some kind of English car, based on the Union Jack sticket, not sure what.

 

Here is a picture I found of it elsewhere:

And here is the actual Acty I saw.

I didn't ask how much it was.  It was hard enough to get a bad picture with the crowd it drew.

I just saw one of the Monroe Handler Mustang II! It was at CJ Pony Parts so not surprising but they only made 6 so it definitely a Unicorn!
