  • ONLY 9,836 MILES (15,829 KM)
  • Options Include:
  • The Z1 was the first product to be developed by BMW Technik GmbH, following a decision to build a two-seat sports roadster, handed down by upper management in early 1985. It was considered an effort to revitalize the company image as well as to demonstrate that BMW was a leader in innovation. Beyond that, the details were left for the design engineers to determine as they saw fit. BMW hired Harm Lagaay from Ford of Europe as design chief to work alongside Ulrich Bez, head of the new division.
    Within one year, a fully operational prototype was developed. Much of the componentry came from the BMW’s 3-Series, including its engine, drivetrain, front suspension, and interior. A front-engine design was chosen with the engine set far towards the center of the car. This made possible a near optimal weight distribution of 51/49 rear, providing the car with excellent handling characteristics. The rear suspension foreshadowed the multi-link design that was to appear on the next-generation 3-Series. Drawing on its Formula 1 racing experience, engineers designed a novel ground-effect system into the Z1, while the headlamps included the latest technology designed for the forthcoming 7-Series.
    The body was fitted with unique electromechanical doors that dropped into the sills for easy entrance and exit by simply touching a button. The entire steel inner structure was coated with zinc to resist corrosion, and the base unit construction was covered with de-mountable injection-moulded thermoplastic body panels that were also capable of resisting impacts of 5 mph. Furthermore, the panels were lauded for being recyclable. Available in four colors, BMW also suggested to owners that the panels were easily interchangeable should the owner desire to change colors of his or her car! Alloy wheels, unique to the Z1, were also fitted.
    The production model was introduced at the 1987 Frankfurt Auto Show with the intention of building 5,000 units on a special production line in its Munich facility. Production began slowly in 1988 with only 58 cars built that year; customer deliveries did not begin until March 1989. Due to the demand for the Z1 as well as other BMW models, BMW increased the numbers built but curtailed production due to the demand for its more profitable models. In the end, 8,000 Z1s (plus 12 pre-production units) had been built before production ceased in the summer of 1991. Due to their low production and limited availability, Z1s have become instantly collectible.
    The 1990 BMW Z1 Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous Traumschwarz Metallic with an impeccably kept gray interior. This magnificent motorcar is one of very few Z1s in the U.S. and is certainly one of the lowest mile examples available on the market today. This is an incredible opportunity to acquire an investment-grade Z1 Roadster at an investment price and we are proud to offer it the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who demands the best. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.

    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.

    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.

    Terms available up to 144 Months
