BMW Classics Private Collection

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

BMW Classic is located close to the BMW Museum in Munich. BMW Classic was created to archive, restore, and preserve the company’s 90 year history. Earlier this year they opened their doors to the public allowing access to old vehicle new parts and their restoration services. Hidden in the back warehouses of BMW Classic is an amazing collection of the company’s past greats. This private museum has never been shown to the public but a source at autoblog.com was granted access. We are big BMW fans at EP, this collection showcases the diversity of their great designs over the years. The orange Jager CSL is drools, from the body flares, to the duck tail, not to mention the BBS wheels…wow! More after the jump…
