1991 BMW Z1


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.

Delivered new to Germany in 1991, the car was subsequently purchased by the current vendor in 2002 and brought to Holland. Owned by the current vendor for the past 16 years, this two-owner car has never left Europe and its ownership history is very well documented. Remarkably this Z1 has always been maintained by BMW and Z1 specialists and is fitted a very important extra, – a special Z1 glass wind breaker, as well as original Alpina wheels and steel exhaust system.

In very good all-round condition and finished in the desirable colour of Traumschwarz-metallic, this is a fantastic example of the ever appreciating Z1. Fitted with four new Continental tires, offer here is an on-the-button little two door sports car that hallmark’s the beginning of one of BMW most successful and fun models.
