Take a look at this $2.3million BMW collection

13-car collection - including M1, Z8 and all the best M3s - is up for sale

  • Building up a decent collection of cars is tricky. Finding the right ones – the models you really want, in the right spec and condition – can take years. And then you have to go through the stress of negotiating a price, handing over the money and then shipping and so on. And honestly, who has the time?

    Which is why if BMWs are your thing, this ready-made collection from Enthusiast Auto Group, out of Cincinnati, Ohio might be just the thing for you. Featuring 13 cars, all supposedly in top condition, the collection is on offer for a whopping $2.3million, including shipping to the mainland US.  

    That buys you: a 1981 M1, a 1990 E30 M3 Sport Evo, a 1995 E36 M3 Lightweight, a 2005 E46 M3 Competition Package, a 2013 E92 M3 Lime Rock Park Edition, a 1991 Z1, a 2001 Z3 M-Coupe, a 2007 Z4 M-Coupe, a 2003 Z8 Roadster, a 2002 E39 M5, a 1988 E24 M6, a 1988 E28 M5 and a 2011 1M Coupe. Now, breathe. 

    That's 13 of the best BMWs from the last few decades. But if one doesn't take your fancy for whatever reason, EAG says it’s happy to “tailor the group of cars”, presumably adding or subtracting as a potential buyer wishes. 

    So, would you spend upwards of $2million on this collection of BMWs?

  • $2.3million works out to around $177,000 per car...

  • And you'd struggle to find an M1 for that.

  • 1M is newest car in the line-up, but still fully deserving of its place. Tremendous thing.

  • E30 M3s are worth big money nowadays. Best M3 ever? 

  • Z1. Not pictured: doors that slide down into the sills. 

  • Z3 M-Coupe is a funny little thing, and thus super collectable.

  • M6 flanked by E46 M3. You want both. 

  • Z4 M-Coupe. Not Cayman sharp, but riotously fun.

  • Can you believe this thing is seven years old? Us neither. 

  • M3 chronology. Not a turbo in sight. 

  • BMW dealer, circa 1980-something. 

  • BMW do good alloys, no?

  • One of 200 LRP Edition M3s. Very orange. 

  • The original M5. Big bumper a consequence of US safety regs. 

  • These things are worth big money nowadays. Look much better when they're not sawn in half, 007.
