Project Blau

Just arrived from the motherland, a 1994 BMW 318iT Design Edition Touring. e30 Tourings have a interesting history as they were never slotted in BMW’s original product plan. A lone engineer, Max Reisböck, decided he needed something with more room so he hacked up his personal 323i at home. He pushed the rear window to the back of the car and extended the roofline. He showed his boss and right there on the spot he told him “we must build this!” The factory was pretty much a carbon copy of Max’s prototype and the rest is history. Unfortunately North America never received this version but with the 15 year import restriction passed they can now be brought in. This one is a nicely preserved example with just one original owner and is one of the last to come off the assembly line in February 1994. Such a classic look and seeing one is like seeing a unicorn.
