THE BMW Z1

A concept car first shown by BMW in 1986 and officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1987, the Z1 Sports Roadster was used to showcase emerging automotive technologies, including the 'internal skeleton' method of construction best known for its use by Rover in the 2000 model of 1963. Molded plastic panels clothed the galvanized steel chassis, which was braced by a molded composite under-tray. Unusually, the doors dropped into the body sides to provide access. The car could be driven with all the panels removed, and it was suggested that owners might want to buy a second set in an alternative color. Demand was strong from the start and today this landmark model continues to be highly sought after by BMW collectors.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautifully presented Z1 was ordered new by BMW of Milano, Italy, and was finished in the popular Toprot over a two-tone gray and camouflage interior, exactly as it appears today. It was fitted with the optional lightweight alloy wheels, emergency spare tire and the radio delete option. When the car set off to Italy from the BMW factory in February 1990, it was delivered to the showroom where it would stay for more than two decades. Later the car was brought back to Germany by the consignor, the car's second owner. Because the Z1 model was never officially sold in the US, until now mostly only out of country BMW enthusiasts have enjoyed these models.

This car is presented in as-new condition, and is offered with the owner's manual, service manuals, BMW Z1 sales brochure, jack, tools and three keys. It has been started on the regular and run up to operating temperature frequently during the consignor's ownership to ensure that the engine and hoses remain in roadworthy condition. With only 35 km (22 miles) on the odometer this is a truly unique chance to own what must be one of the lowest mileage Z1s in the world.
