We have been incredibly fortunate to encounter some of the world’s most incredible cars. I believe that the best cars arethe ones with the best history. They come with a story, they have character.I love cars with original interiors, patina onevery switch and gauge. Vintage leather has a smell that cannot be duplicated and some interiors have a sheen that even the bestrestorers cannot replicate.
We recently met the owner of an incredible 1981 BMW M1. A former journalist who was invited personally by BMW to purchase one of the last supercars produced. He took delivery of the car in Germany and never looked back. A true enthusiast, the M1 followed him during his incredible career that brought him and the M1 to almost every continent. SouthAfrica, New Zealand, Mexico, Arizona and eventually Miami.
During that time the car was brought to car shows, displayed at BMW dealers and lovingly cherished. A combination of period photos, car show placards, old registration stickers and original Pirelli P7 tires tell the incredible story of an M1 andits loving owners 36 years together.
Never abused, completely original and only 13,000 kms.
We are honored to offer this car to the public for the first time in many years. We feel it’s our duty that the next caretakermust be as loving and as passionate as its first.
New to South Africa. Complete with original photos at delivery, records, books and tools.
Stunning original survivor example. Completely bone stock with the exception of aftermarket 1980s Blaupunkt Speakersinstalled.

Almost 60 years ago my grandfather started repairing odd and rare European cars in Springfield, Mass. During an era where Ferrari and Lamborghini were building small quantities of hand made cars that rarely made it onto American soil. Arguably, this moment in history was the most significant time for the automobile, an era that produced the most iconic cars of our time which became the DNA for todays most famous marques.
He bought and sold cars like the Ferrari 250 GTO, Jaguar D-Type and Lamborghini Miura. (Selling his Ferrari 250 GTO for $9,500.00 to Robert Sowers has always been a sore spot.) While my grandfather loved engineering and mechanics, my father loved the automobile. Working under the stewardship of my grandfather, he became a brilliant mechanic and at an early age started collecting cars. At the New York Auto Show in 1972 he bought a one-off Lamborghini Miura SV from Modena Racing that he still posses today. In the 1980s, my father became the authorized service in Palm Beach, Florida for Lamborghini facilitated by Joe Nastasi. Nastasi was the sole distributor for Lamborghini in the Americas.
I grew up around and inside LM002's, Countach's and Jalpa's. For my father and myself the automobile was not a livelihood, it was an obsession. He amassed a collection of toys, parts and cars that is unparallaled in the world. While other kids spent their afternoons and summers in camp, I spent it on the shop floor, cleaning Ferrari F50's, reading 25th Anniversary owners manuals and studying serial numbers, factory/dealer options and sweeping floors. After the world's best education, an MBA in everything Ferrari and Lamborghini, In 2005 I left home and began my own journey. This journey is dedicated to Jacques Temerian and John Temerian Sr.
