BMW Classic Offers First Classic BMWs For Sale

BMW Classic rises in a trade with the classics.

* 16/09/2010
* Press Release

Munich. BMW Classic offers the first classic BMW cars for sale. A BMW M1 and a BMW 3.0 CSL will be auctioned by auction house Bonhams in October in Dubai. The two rarities are from the plant's own collection and are among the icons of the BMW automotive history.

With the sale of classic cars Classic BMW makes the next step in its reorientation towards customer service. Restored after the enlargement of the historical workshop on the BMW Classic Center, the customer vehicles, now being added all the divisions of "buying and selling of classics are just as much as teaching of classics and purchase advice to our new offers," says Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Classic. "The auction of the two vehicles is our first step in that direction." Both the BMW M1 and the BMW 3.0 CSL are from the 1990s, owned by BMW Classic and important cars in the BMW mobile tradition. These particular cars were gradually restored and shown at special events such as the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in public.

The auction of the vehicles by Bonhams in Dubai represents the first time ever that a vehicle from the factory collection has been put up for sale. "I am convinced that both the site and its partner have made the right choice for this premiere," says Baumer. More BMW classic purchases and sales will follow. "The documentation of BMW history and our operational capability at events is of course the focus of our collection strategy, but we also want to create in the future an opportunity for friends of the brand an opportunity to purchase BMW classic cars directly from the manufacturers," explained Ralf Quad, General Manager Sales and After Sales at BMW Classic. "Simultaneously, we are strengthening our presence in the Middle East - a region which we view with a lot of potential." Quad further states.

I hope they have others to keep. It would be a shame to sell their last examples.

A CA at Prestige BMW in Ramsey NJ took me to their service center and showed me the dealership owner's M1 and 2002 turbo. My jaw dropped when I saw both sparkling beauties.

I think its crap these are being sold in the middle east... I am not stealing this thread, but simply saying that those two cars should go to someone who is truly passionate about cars not just someone with a huge wad of oil ash that already has 100 in their garage all with low number plates.

Great example of both cars, hopefully they end up with someone who deserves them and will keep them this mint

Their restoration of that interior is just gorgeous .

335i Trace - I'm pretty sure anybody who can afford to bid on that car, can afford to have a proxy present at the auction. The location of the auction doesnt mean that only a middle easterner will be able to get their hands on them. It's money that talks. Besides, BMW has a legitimate interest in growing its operations there.

If there's one specific car brand that Arab people especially love it's BMW. When I was overseas there were so many E30's, E21's, E28's, E34's, every type of Bimmer imaginable running around. Even a lot of 2002's still running around as DD's.

I hope the cars end up with one of the many true enthusiasts and not just some rich oil tycoon who wants to bolster his collection.

Here I have found recently an interesting german auto-house website, offering a lot of classic cars. There are even several M1s! If it's still functioning and real, it is worth seeing. However the fact that all car prices are still shown in Deutschemarks(this currency does not exist since 1999), makes me doubt that.

Nevertheless if you like old time bimmers, go under "Angebote" and check them. Some look really well-preserved.
