Default Pristine 122-mile 1990 BMW Z1 up for auction

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2014/...p-for-auction/

Imagine owning a BMW Z1: a still-modern silhouette, low and wedge-shaped; the traditional small BMW kidney grille; the unusual interior pattern; doors that slide down into the side sill. Now imagine owning a 1990 BMW Z1 with just 122 miles on the odometer. You donít have to imagine. You can.

A beautiful red example of the Z1 that's only seen 197 kilometers (122 miles) of use is going up for auction this month via Silverstone Auctions in the UK. Never registered, and barely driven, this is a museum-quality car, and itís expected to sell for somewhere between £50,000-£60,000 (or about $84,000-$100,000).

Bearing chassis number 06057, this Z1 sports everything that made the sporty, low-production roadster special : the M20B25 four-cylinder borrowed from the 325i of the era, the pressed-steel-and-zinc-welded body structure, the lightweight plastic body panels, the unique downward-sliding doors.

If youíd like to put this stunning Z1 in your personal collection, youíll want to attend the Silverstone Auctions May Sale at The Wing at Silverstone on May 24

Dem doors doe

All joking aside, this was a dream car of mine at a very young age. And I think that price would be very reasonable for an essentially new Z1

Want to grab me a phone # off of it if you can? I'd like a z1 and if it's too rich for my blood I'm sure I have a customer that would be interested in it for a build.

I can make a drive again over the weekend if it is still there, absolutely. Looked to be a good choice for a build as I could see the oxidized paint from the road.
