I consider myself a big '02 fan, and have been an '02 owner continuously since 1973, but if I were prepared to spend 150,000 Euros on a car, it would NOT be for an '02, no matter how rare it was!

Regards,

Steve

Here are the 12 storied Dianas.  This car is one of those 12.... the 12 Apostles, so to speak.  The legendary Hubert Hahne dedicated this car to his wife Diana. Click the links above to learn the details of the Dianas.  You are not buying a car here.  You are buying a piece of BMW Automotive History.  This is a Museum piece.  If you are looking to just buy a car..... please keep the line moving.  This isn't the car for you.   :)

I don't have a problem with a $150K. ;)

 

Baurspotting has a group of pictures showing the canary car.  The interior looks quite modified.   They talk about a "museum piece", but shouldn't the interior be original?  Especially at that price.

 

Maybe it's pie in the sky.  Maybe they're hoping to find a super-rich collector (or a museum) willing to pay their price.

 

If it sells for that price, the world has gone crazy.  In our favor.  If you haven't bought an 02 yet, you better hurry!

Since my wife's name is Diana would I get a discount?

It is worth a shot!  But I wouldn't get my hopes up.  :)

Yes, Paul, the whole car has been modified.  It hardly resembles the original.  But..... it IS the original!  This will take big bucks to buy and big bucks to restore to original condition.  If someone is so inclined.  But.... alternatively... Hubert Hahne, who was the driving force for the creation of the 12 Dianas, was a race car driver.  This Diana has been raced for years on the Canary Islands.  There is an amazing symmetry there.  This may be the perfect Hubert Hahne Diana..... as is!  i say leave it be the way it is!  And Kudos to the owners who have.... for years...driven it as it was intended!   What a story this car has!!

I'm with you. You can pick almost pick up two 997 GT3 Cups for that price.

Now don't get me wrong, I wouldn't pay that either even if I had it, but why then is it ok for an early Porsche to be silly money (not saying it is, just looking at the market) yet a rare beast like a Diana is not.

It's all crap anyway, and this is for guys with way to much money and silly investors, I'd get a Turbo. an A4s, a cab, and a Baur and still have change!

Guess I will have to settle for my poor old Tii and a nice drive up the coast in the morning, I could have some fun with all that cash though

Tommy, you are not remembering that wrong.  That was actually one of the key elements to the car.  No idea what is up with this car, pictures aren't

great, just from what I can see in the engine bay with all the polished sh&t and what not - sketchy.

I thought that Dianas had m30 big six under hood but did I remember that wrong?

Tommy

FWIW:

"Contrary to popular belief, there were no specific plans to power any of these Dianas with a turbo or a six cylinder engine. According to the popular '02 Restoration Guide, by Mike Macartney

"The first five Dianas sold quickly, but the other seven went more slowly, the last example being sold at the end of 1971. To encourage sales, Hahne had offered to equip them with injected engines or turbochargers."

Macartney continues..

"Hahne had retained one car for himself - finished in Coffee Brown. Into this he had the tuning specialist Jurgen Grahser transplant the 150bhp 2.5 litre six-cylinder engine from a BMW 2500 saloon. The conversion also included a five-speed gearbox, limited-slip differential and electric windows.”

A very reliable source tells me that this coffee-brown six-cylinder Diana is still on the road, somewhere in Germany."

Sorry, but I'm not buying into this Diana hype. The link to the factory is tenuous. Diana is nothing more than a dealer modified car. But then the same could be said about Yenkos (Corvairs, Camaros, and Chevelles), and they command hefty premiums.
