We don’t see many Z1s as good as this. Owned by the same family since 1994, this cracking little machine has spent its life in a heated garage, emerging only rarely on the odd dry day for fun drives. Covering only 23,175 miles from new, this Z1 came to us wearing its original tyres, immediately impressing our technical team with its unspoilt originality. Its never had a clock change – one of the Z1 Achille’s heels – and all the panels are original. Its not possible to put a paint gauge on the car due to it being plastic, but it doesn’t look like its ever been painted. The interior is in fine fettle and mechanically it will be prepped by us and presented in tip top mechanical condition. The hit list is simply a question of recommissioning.

The Z1 looks like a concept car that became real, and that’s not far from the truth. An unexpected success, BMW went on to make around 5000 units. As the first Z car, it gave BMW the boost to develop the Z cars into the world beating two-seater sports cars we still see today. As a modern classic, its hard to think of a more head-turning, funky, different two-seater - with its drop-down doors and futuristic styling it has rightfully earned its place in BMW’s story as the perfect example of what can be achieved with the right blend of innovation, imagination, and determination. The Z1 still has a futuristic look, even today.

Easy to own, unrustable, and with the bullet proof M20 six-cylinder 2.5 found in the same era’s 325i and 525i, the Z1 is one of the coolest classic two seaters around, and will give years of hassle free enjoyment, given the right maintenance. This particular Z1 is one of the best you could own. Our technical team have carried out the usual thorough inspection and have drawn up a comprehensive list of age-related works to be carried out prior to the new owner taking possession. Once complete this Z1 will be a stunning, low mileage, low owner classic Legend.
