What a bahnstormer a delivery mileage BMW 1M from 2011


o Just 90 miles from new, 1 of 450 made

o Ferrari 348 Spider, 1 of 75 right-hand drive cars made
o An impressive Ford Capri 2000 V4 GT XLR with 12,000 miles

Classic Car Auctions are offering a truly unique 2011 BMW 1M with delivery mileage at their forthcoming sale this weekend at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

Bought from BMW Park Lane we understand from the vendor that this car was used to launch the model in the UK at the Park Lane Showroom.

This must be a one-off opportunity to acquire BMWs pocket rocket with just 90 miles on the clock and one of the 450 cars made.

Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions auction manager commented: “This is quite a remarkable car. Owned by one family, they bought the car and then stored it in an underground facility which has kept the car away from the elements for the last eight years.”

The car will when it comes to the sale, will have an MOT until September 2020 and have had a full BMW service. Estimated at £60,000 to £70,000 this must be the best on the market.

Whilst we are on rare cars, how about a 1994 Ferrari 348 Spider? This manual right-hand drive car is one of 75 which were destined for the UK. With 18,700 miles from new, this car is from the last year of production and is superbly presented in Giallo Modena, yellow in case you were unsure. Estimated at £50,000 to £55,000 this low mileage Ferrari is a real head-turner.

Our next two lots are very rare indeed, with both scoring extremely high on the condition report. The earliest lot is the 1970 Ford Capri MK1 2000 V4 GT XLR which at the time was the top of the range model costing an additional £1,310. The first of the two owners had the car up to 2016 when it changed hands to the current owner. It underwent a full bare-metal nut and bolt restoration to the highest of standards and finished in the correct colour scheme with the optional black bonnet. Estimated at £25,000 to £30,000 and with just 12,730 miles on the clock, this is one outstanding Ford Capri.

Four years later came the Ford Capri MK1 RS3100 again in exceptional condition after a full restoration and estimated at £50,000 to £60,000. With 48,000 miles on the clock, boxes of paperwork and with probably just 50 of these cars left, this is one potential show-stopping Concours winning car.

Gary Dunne continued: ”These are just four of the outstanding cars we have for sale, with over 110 lots covering all types of cars both modern and classic, we have a great selection looking for their next loving owner.”
