BMW Z 8 owned by Apple's Steve Jobs heads to auction , valued up to 0K. Six years ago today, Apple cofounder Steve Jobs passed away. The company's current CEO, Tim Cook, reflected the occasion on Thursday with a quote from the iconic visionary.

Jobs ' wheels are expected to go for between 0,000 and 0,000. The BMW will go up for auction on Dec. In fact, it's done the opposite. The Z 8 is a 14- year - old BMW that has gained in value," writes Autotrader's Doug DeMuro.

The Apple boss was never known as a car man, but he did own a succession of Mercedes SLs. Legend has it that he exploited a California loophole where he didn’t have to put registration plates on his car for the first six months of ownership. Because he didn’t like the way they affected the styling of the car, he traded it in and bought a new one every six months.

By 2003, the year that Jobs sold the BMW convertible, the iTunes Store was open for business on the internet, selling music for 89p a song. A novel idea, we do wonder whatever came of that.
