Steve Jobs' BMW goes up for sale

Instamotor

This plain white 1995 BMW 3 Series convertible may not turn many heads, but it did at one point have one very special owner, Apple chief Steve Jobs.

Listed for sale at just over £9,500 on Instamotor, the 325i has 138,000 miles on the clock but still has a pristine-looking black leather interior. It also has a Pioneer stereo fitted with Bluetooth compatibility, meaning that this 90's classic still has some up-to-date touches.

Owned between 1995 and 1996, the BMW was used by Jobs during his time at NeXT, as he developed a computer company that later became a part of Apple. NeXT developed cutting-edge computers, one of which was used by Tim Berners-Lee to create the World Wide Web and the world's first internet webpage.

Jobs, who died in 2011, was better known for driving a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG, a car that epitomised his ideas about engineering and design.

If you look, there's a small dent behind the driver's side door meaning that the BMW is not entirely showroom fresh. Given the amount of miles that the car has driven though, this is to be expected.

Interestingly, a similar car with fewer miles on the clock will achieve a price of around £3,995. Given this car's famous owner, you can understand the increase in price despite the high miles.

The pictures show the condition of the car to be pretty good, but that's going to be of little concern to a buyer who wants the chance to own a little part of both Jobs' and Apple's history.
