1979 M1 AHG Studie - $648k

This 1 of 10 M1 AHG Studie is one of the world's rarest BMWs. It stars at an upcoming RM Sotheby's auction later this month. Aside from the Procar-inspired exterior styling, the AHG-fettled cars received a new exhaust system, a racing clutch, adjustable racing suspension, and slick-looking BBS wheels. Most importantly, the M88/1 3.5-liter inline-six was upgraded to 350 horsepower, a serious step up from the original 277 hp.
This example was part of the AE Collection of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, who were both killed in a crash in 2013. The vehicle sold for $500k in February 2021. During its 42 years, the BMW has recorded 4,238 miles. RM Sotheby's estimated the M1 AHG Studie would fetch between $450k and $550k. It made $648k. Here.
