Leading the list of BMW’s on offer for the Auctions America’s Fort Lauderdale event is an exceptionally cared for 1981 BMW M1 – a shining example of the iconic “80s supercar”. The car was bought new in Germany by Emilio Garcia Lourdes, a personal friend of Victor H. Doolan, and then subsequently delivered new to Johannesburg, South Africa.

Lourdes was the owner of a publishing company and traveled the world gathering information and photos from different countries for his books. A true BMW enthusiast, the car never left his side, traveling with him to Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France, and eventually, Australia, and New Zealand before landing in the United States in the summer of 2012.

The first production mid-engine BMW, the featured M1 is one of just 399 road-going examples. Fully documented and in single-ownership from new, it remains in pure stock form having never been federalized, and has been sparingly driven, showing only 13,500 original kilometers.

Shown at numerous events over the years, including festivities during the Australian Grand Prix, it is offered in Fort Lauderdale for the first time in 35 years by its first and only owner (Est. $500,000 – $600,000).
