I looked at this car last week and it is very original and sounded great. I did not get to drive it but if the bidding was lower I would buy it. Very nice car.

I have seen this car and the owner if I remember correctly was a auto journalist for one of the car mag.


Not a BMW but still very cool. Never have seen one in person.


Not a lot of these around. Has anyone owned one and can comment on how they drive?


I love the look from the rear with the flared fenders.


This is a very cool and rare car. Never see them on the road.
