As all kinds of companies call their designs "completely new," I'll elaborate just a bit.

The Z8 is built with an aluminum space frame, body panels & suspension, which would share almost nothing with the Z3. Interior is also totally different, with a lot of pieces which are unique to the Z8. Only thing that it really shares with other BMWs is the M5's engine, but the M5 is pretty exotic (and expensive) in the under-hood department.

$130K is a big ol' pile of $$$, but you're definitely not getting run-of-the-mill parts bin engineering. Even so, anyone who would pay $300K has a whole lot more money than sense.
