1991 BMW Z1 AC Schnitzer

One of 10 produced - Extensive history file


The BMW Z1 is a two-seat roadster developed by BMW inspired by its famous predecessor the 507. It was produced from March 1989 to June 1991 and featured futuristic features for its time such as electronically controlled doors which dropped down into the door sills. A total of 8,000 cars were produced, all of which were left-hand drive. The Z in Z1 originally stood for Zukunft (German for future) and would later be used on other cars in the line: the Z3, Z4, and Z8)

Even rarer than the Alpina, of which 66 were made, AC Schnitzer only tuned 10 Z1’s. Of these 10, only 7 are still known to exist and this is one of them!


Produced on the 19th February 1991 and delivered to Schnitzer in Freilassing on the 25th February, the car remains in its original and very desirable colour scheme of Traumschrwarz and dark grey leather interior. Both of which are described to be in good condition throughout.


The car is provided with extensive documentation including maintenance booklets, invoices, English MOT reports and remarkably a signature from Mr. Harm Lagaay, – the Dutch man who originally designed the Z1 for BMW!


With only 10 Z1’s originally tuned by AC Schnitzer, rarely are these exclusive cars ever seen, let alone offered for sale on the open market. With even average Z1’s selling well in today’s market, a special edition low-production example with such an extensive history file can only represent a fantastic investment opportunity. Offered with a very realistic reserve.
