The Z3 was the first modern mass-market roadster produced by BMW. 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 stunning BMW M3 Roadster is presented in silver with two-tone black and red leather interior. This low mileage example benefits from a high level of equipment which includes central locking, an electric convertible roof and heated seats. Also included is the extremely rare factory hardtop. The glorious 3.2 litre engine combined with racing suspension and brakes to match result in the highest performance car BMW had built at the time, becoming what the UK’s Top Gear declared ‘the best handling car in the business.’ The rush of acceleration comes with a throaty growl from its quad exhausts that still drop peoples jaws today! This roadster still gets complemented for its timeless design and rarity. This handsome example is presented to auction with a comprehensive service history, a V5C registration document and a MOT test certificate valid until 25th August 2022.
