The first BMW Z1 (Z standing for Zunkuft, German for future) was shown at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor show. Initial demand was so strong that 5,000 orders were placed before production even began. The car developed by BMW Technik GmbH featured a unique door arrangement where the doors, instead of opening outward, dropped down into the car’s sills.
The chassis was specially designed for the Z1 and features a number of innovative features: removable body panels; continuously zinc welded seams; a composite undertray; as well as the unusual dropped doors.
Representing a fantastic investment opportunity, this very original car has covered only 37,000km from new. Finished in the desirable colour combination Traum-Schwarz metallic over grey interior, the car is offered with its original books.
