THE BMW M COUPE

A brilliant exercise in "retro" styling that recalled its fabulous "328" sports car of pre-war days, BMW's Z3 was introduced in 1996. The original four-cylinder 1.9-liter Z3 was more of a stylish boulevard cruiser than out-and-out sports car. A successful concept perhaps best exemplified by Mercedes-Benz's old 230/250/280SL family, and would prove equally appealing to both men and women drivers.

Commencing in the early 1980s with the limited edition "homologation special" M3, BMW Motorsport GmbH went on to create its own distinctive "M-Power" brand of performance-enhanced luxury models. The first M-Power Z3 appeared in January of 1998. Built until February 2001 when the model was revised, the first-series Z3 M Coupe and Roadster were powered by the 3.2-liter S50 engine producing 316bhp and 236lb/ft of torque—figures that translated into a tire-smoking 0-60mph time of 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. The fastest-accelerating BMW ever at the time of its introduction, the Z3 M Coupe boasted a generous specification including: electric windows, ABS, PAS, air conditioning, heated seats, driver/passenger air bags, six-speaker stereo system, alarm/immobilizer, heated exterior mirrors, 17" alloy wheels, and a limited-slip differential as standard. Combining outrageous looks and performance with impressive practicality, the Z3 M Coupe was not replaced within BMW's line-up after its deletion in 2002, and is surely destined for "highly collectible" status in the future.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This exceptional example of the rare Z3 M Coupe has the more powerful 319bhp S54 engine introduced near the end of the model run and is one of only 21 examples produced in Imola red over red and black livery. Believed to be a 3-owner car from new, the M Coupe has covered less than 23,500 miles, and remains in original, well-preserved condition throughout. The BMW is offered with full service history and the original window sticker. Running and driving beautifully, the little pocket-rocket Z3 M Coupe is a spectacular "young-timer" collectible, which many believe will continue to appreciate as it ages.
