 Auckland ,New Zealand shopping streets are not normally where one would expect to see unusual cars but very recently within the space of a few minutes I saw both this very rare BMW Z1 and the equally rare Z8 both casually parked on the street .
I am not sure about the wheels/tyres on the Z8 -the taste police probably need to have word with the owner .
For a population of only just over 4 million spread over two geographically challenging islands NZ does have a very active car, motorcycling and motorsport culture .They have a surprising number of racing circuits including a number of street circuits and they are still building tracks with the very impressive Hampton Downs having been recently completed outside Hamilton on the North Island.
