The Z3 was the first modern mass-market roadster produced by BMW, as well as the first new BMW model to be assembled in the United States. It was introduced as a 1996 model year vehicle, shortly after being featured in the James Bond movie 'Goldeneye'. While the film was number one at the box office, sales of the car peaked and it was sold out by the time the car was launched. Along with the styling cues, BMW’s Motorsports division took the Z3M and shoehorned in the performance version of the most beloved six-cylinder engines in the auto industry from the BMW E36 M3, upping the power to 321bhp!!
This example is finished in Estoril Blue metallic with blue and black leather sports seats and a blue hood. The car comes with its factory hardtop, heated seats, electric windows and electric door mirrors. It also has remote door locking facility, wind deflectors and a roof cover. Its powerful 3.2 litre six-cylinder engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox and all the alloys wheels are in good condition as is the car throughout. The ‘M’ series of this model is highly sought after and as this is a convertible, this makes it even more desirable.
