The most expensive BMWs you can’t buy
The BMW Nazca M12, now worth more than $3,000,000
The BMW Nazca was a one-time concept with a futuristic design that had a 5-liter V12 under the hood with 380 hp. It could reach a speed of 200 miles per hour and it isn’t known exactly how many were produced at the time in 1991.
Back in 2011, a Nazca M12 was sold for $1.1 million dollars, which made it the most expensive BMW ever sold. Nowadays, there aren’t any for sale as they are owned in private collections. Of course, given the right price someone would sell.
The BMW M8 E31 – $600,000
The M8 Prototype was created back in the 1990s and eventually became one of the rarest cars in the world. It comes with a whopping 550 hp and a massive V12 engine which accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds and can be driven at the insane speed of 200 miles per hour.
The M8 E31 was never actually launched, but the prototypes were sold. It is estimated that it would’ve cost $600,000 to buy one if they had been for sale.
The CSL Hommage Concept 3.0 CSL BMW, $1,500,000
This BMW supercar was officially designed to pay homage to the CSL of the 1970s, which was the BMW brand’s most successful race car ever. It was nicknamed the Batmobile, as it resembles the famous vehicle from the comics. The race car from the 70s got over 100 wins during its reign and definitely deserves to be paid honors.
BMW proudly demonstrated that they were proud of their heritage and they paid respect to the past in determining what future path the company would take. The car is supplied with the largest brakes Brembo had at the time and packed around 500 horsepower.
