Those seeking to have a true collectible, one of three BMW ItalDesign Nazcas ever created is up for sale. The concept car originally designed in 1991 by Giorgetto Giugiaro, was supposed to be the successor to BMW’s M1 but manufacturing of the Nazca never made it to fruition. The car is being offered for a tad over $1,100,000.

Powered by a 5.7L Alpina V12 powerplant, the ItalDesign Nazca has 350-hp, which may seem low in today’s standards, but still aids in taking the supercar from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The prototype has less than 20 miles on it and features gullwing windows with conventional doors and leather interior.
