The BMW E36 M3 debuted in February 1992 and was the first M3 powered by a straight six engine, originally a 3.0 litre, producing 282bhp. Initially available as a coupé only, BMW introduced the M3 convertible and saloon versions in 1994. In 1995, the M3 coupé and saloon were upgraded to the 316bhp, 3.2 litre engines and known as Evolution versions. At the same time, the cars received clear indicator lenses, new wheels and a six-speed gearbox. The E36 M3 chassis was touted as one of the best handling cars of the 90's in independent tests and known for its well-balanced handling.
Originally registered on 9th March 1998 this BMW M3 presents in good order throughout. The green coachwork is virtually unmarked, and the tan leather interior shows little signs of wear. An extensive service history accompanies this Evolution confirming this to be a well looked after example. Having covered only 82,000 miles from new and with everything working well, including the hood, this is a great opportunity to purchase a stylish, yet great fun to drive, sportscar for the summer. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2021.
