Zippy Mint 1990 BMW Z1 For Sale in the UK

With only 122 miles on the clock.

The BMW Z1 is one of the finest - and funnest - Z cars of all time. Manufactured in small numbers, it rode on a skeletal frame that provided excellent rigidity, while integrating plastic body parts that reduced weight and kept the car quick and nimble. It was equipped with a six-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, and put out 168 horsepower. Besides being a tiny, light roadster, it also offered awesome doors that dropped into their sills at the touch of a button.

Now, one of these rare Z1s is up for auction in the UK, through Silverstone Auctions. This particular example has been part of a collection ever since it was bought, was never registered and has only 122 miles on the clock. It is expected to fetch between $84,000 and $101,000 when it crosses the block later this month.
