Lot 174 - 1999 BMW Z3M Coupé
|Odometer reading||166,334 miles|
|Estimate||£21,000 - £26,000|
When the director of design at BMW first saw the coupé version of the Z3, there was a long silence, not least because this was 'mocked-up' by a handful of dedicated designers during evenings and weekends. Like the GT6 and MGB GT, two acknowledged influences, this wasn't just a convertible with a hardtop. The entire chassis was redesigned, the roof lengthened, more power added (obviously) and finer, under the skin details, like cooling fins on the differential. The engine is the same 3.2 litre unit from an M3, an almost absurd amount of horsepower per unit weight. With over 6,000 miles of testing at the Nürburgring, you can be sure this is well tested and up to the task of shifting you and a friend up to a (limited) 155mph and back down again equally quickly, all within the confines of BMW's legendary build quality. The M Coupé was voted by Top Gear magazine as one of 'the 149 Coolest Cars Ever'.
Originally registered on 29th October 1999 this Z3M coupé presents in condition that makes a mockery of the mileage. Invoices confirming over £30,000 has been spent on the car in recent years will tell you this has been an exceptionally well maintained example. Finished in silver with black leather interior this Z3M coupé is supplied with a V5 registration document, a current MoT test certificate valid until 28th July 2023 and a significant history folder. Inspection of this car in person is recommended to appreciate the condition, this could prove to be a fantastic purchase for any BMW Z3M fan with values for these Coupés increasing.
