1990 BMW Z1 with 10,500 Miles


That’s what the “Z” in the roadster/coupe lineup of BMW stands for, and it’s hard not to look at the 1990 BMW Z1 and not see a futuristic Roadster. Based upon, and sold alongside, the E30 BMW, the underpinnings weren’t revolutionary, but the shape sure was. Highlighted by its resin body with guillotine doors, roughly 8,000 of these unique visions of the future were produced by BMW. So thorough was the exterior change, little connection of the E30 base can immediately be seen. Never officially imported to the United States, there are nonetheless several cruising around (by cruising around, I mean mostly being offered for sale for outrageous prices). Today’s signature Urgrün (Original Green) Z1 has only 10,500 miles since new, so is this one equally unaffordable?


Year: 1990
Model: Z1
Engine: 2.5 liter inline-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 10,500 mi
Price: Reserve Auction


Offered for your consideration is this beautifully kept and maintained – two owner -1990 BMW Z1 Roadster with 10,675 miles on the odometer. This stunning collector car is finished in Nature Green with a complementary Gray Nubuck interior and Black canvas convertible top. Overall this car is in fantastic condition and worth serious consideration by any classic car collector.

The 1990 BMW Z1 Roadster is powered by a 2.5 liter Inline 6 engine that produces 168 horsepower which is coupled to a 5 Speed manual transmission. The car has Power Steering, Brakes, Windows, Locks and Mirrors and has AC and a standard factory stereo. This car is special and was never made available in North America so those available were imported by private owners. This car was imported from the UK and has all the appropriate and required paperwork to operate and register in the US including a clear Massachusetts title. The car was dealer maintained in the UK on an annual basis and at this time sports new tires, battery and she had all her fluids changed; she’s ready for summer!!

The Z1 is a limited production investor quality car that was produced between 1989 to 1991. The Z1 is unique for its plastic body panels and vertically sliding doors which drop into the door sills; you rarely see these on the road and she is in perfect condition looking for a new home.

The asking price of that Z1 I looked at in 2017 was $89,900, and it had just about 10,000 miles. Head to the dealer of this example’s website and – sure enough – $89,900. Condition looks to be fantastic as it should be, and Original Green looks better than just plain black to me. But at $89,900, is this the E30 convertible to buy?

Well, there’s a problem. Right now, if you really wanted to spend around 90 grand on a E30 with no roof, there’s an even more rare and arguably more desirable M3 convertible for $2,000 less. Granted, it’s no where near as low mileage; but, then, it’s a M3. Bidding would seem to indicate that there’s not great demand for this Z1; currently, it’s only hit $22,000, far short of the $89,900 asking price. It’s clearly not going to sell soon.
