If you’re looking to have the ultimate BMW collection, you can do it in one fell swoop, thanks to a package of cars currently offered for sale by Enthusiast Auto Group (EAG). EAG, as it’s known, is a dealership in Ohio that specializes in the highest quality BMW models on the market, and they’ve assembled a group of 13 pristine BMW models, dubbed the Collection of BMW Legends, for sale as a total package for $2.3 million.
The package of cars is quite impressive to anyone who’s interested in BMWs. The most amazing model is BMW’s famed supercar, the M1, which was made in the late 1970s and early 1980s. EAG has a gorgeous white 1981 model included in the package. But the collection includes several other legendary BMW models, too, including a 2003 Z8 — the final model year of BMW’s "other" exotic sports car, beyond the M1 — as well as a Z1, an ultra-rare BMW roadster with doors that famously retract into the car’s body.
What else is included in a collection of the 13 BMW legends? There’s a 1988 M5, a 1988 M6, a 1990 M3 Sport Evolution, a 1995 M3 Lightweight, a 2001 Z3 M Coupe, a 2002 M5, a 2005 M3 Competition, a 2007 Z4 M Coupe, a 2011 1 Series M and a 2013 BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition.
Of course, like all car enthusiasts, my immediate thought upon reading this list turned to: "What’s missing?" The only three "legendary" BMW models I could think of that aren’t included in this list are the E60 M5, which is legendary both for its incredible V10 and its lousy reliability, the 850CSi, which was the pinnacle version of BMW’s flagship 8 Series coupe from the 1990s and the 1990s M5 Touring, a station wagon version of the M5 from its "E34" generation. Otherwise, the collection has them all.
And it doesn’t just have them all — it has them all in pristine condition, often from the final or best year of production, and always in the best trim or edition. It’s a special collection, and it’s no surprise that EAG put it together, given the firm’s special talent for finding and offering the best BMWs on the market.
