WBABA9170AL03633 *Landmark BMW sports car *Left-hand drive *Main dealer maintained with no expense spared *Circa 44,000 kilometres (approximately 27,300 miles) from new *New tyres £30,000 - 35,000 €34,000 - 39,000 'The car (Z1) was not especially cheap to buy, but was built to BMW's traditionally high standards. Some regarded the car as faultless, and it was certainly among the best-handling sports cars, but the important point for BMW was its standing. BMW had returned to making true sports cars after many years' absence.' – Lawrence Meredith, BMW: 1975 – 2001. A 'concept car' first shown by BMW in 1986 and officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1987, the Z1 sports roadster was used to showcase emerging automotive technologies, including the 'internal skeleton' method of construction that made for a very stiff chassis and excellent roadholding. Moulded plastic panels clothed the galvanised steel chassis, which was braced by a moulded composite under-tray. The body panels were easily removed, and it was even suggested that suggested that owners might want to buy a second set in an alternative colour. Unusually, the electrically operated doors dropped into the body sides to provide access; to date, the BMW Z1 remains the only convertible car to employ this technology. The Z1 could be driven with soft-top closed or open; windows closed or open; or doors open or closed. With everything open, the fun Z1 is said to feel just like a four-wheeled motorcycle! The running gear was more conventional - MacPherson strut independent front suspension being complemented by a wishbone set-up at the rear - while motive power was supplied by a 2.5-litre, 170bhp version of BMW's overhead-cam straight six driving the rear wheels via five-speed manual gearbox. Top speed was around 225km/h (140mph) with 100km/h (62mph) coming up in around 8 seconds. Production began slowly in 1988 at the rate of six cars per day, ending in 1991 after the planned 8,000 units had been built. Demand was strong from the start despite a high price, and today this landmark model continues to be highly sought after by BMW collectors. The vendor advises us that this Z1 has been main dealer maintained with no expense spared, and is described by him as in generally very good/excellent condition, having covered only some 44,000 kilometres (approximately 27,300 miles) from new. Finished in red with grey/green 'camouflage' leather interior, this rare and desirable BMW sports car is offered with its original handbook, original service book, current MoT, and a V5C document.
