1990 BMW

Z1 Roadster

--Traumschwartz Metallic (Green-Black metallic) with Grey/Camo interior, 2.5 Liter Inline 6-cylinder engine, 32,000 Km / 20,000 miles from new, 5-speed manual transmission, Well serviced.

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, and 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. Drawing on its Formula 1 racing experience, engineers designed a novel ground-effect system into the Z1.

The body was fitted with unique electromechanical doors that dropped into the sills for easy entrance and exit by simply touching a button and the base unit construction was covered with de-mountable injection-molded thermoplastic body panels that were also capable of resisting impacts of 5 mph. Furthermore, the panels were 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.

Due to their low production and limited availability, Z1s have become instantly collectible. This example is spectacular in every way and not ordinarily found with such low original mileage, it is accompanied by the original books and service records. Having been in previous collector ownership and care, this Z1 is superb throughout and ready for immediate top down and door down enjoyment. Recent servicing includes new ECU, new soft top, fluid and filter service, and new door modules and belts.

Extremely rare, having never been imported and sold through United States BMW franchised dealers when new, this Z1 is a significant piece of BMW history. It is one of a handful that have been imported to the USA.
