Developed initially as a coupe, the BMW Motorsport E30 was built to meet FIA Group A homologation requirements. The competition-inspired engine, incredible handling, and box-flared fenders enhanced an already remarkable road car. The M3 convertible, however, took exclusivity to another level, resulting in a highly desirable open touring car. Specialists at the BMW Garching facility hand built each M3 convertible, adding further to the car’s mystique.
This example is one of only 476 built in the final year of E30 M3 convertible production. Assembled at the factory with the most potent engine available – the 215 bhp S-14 twin cam – this M3 was sold new in Germany, where it remained throughout the 1990s under the care of two meticulous enthusiasts before it was sold to the current owner in North America.
In 2016, five new tires were installed, the brake fluid flushed, differential fluid replaced, coolant system serviced, and the alternator drive belt replaced. Accompanying the car are manuals, tools, factory leather pouch, matching M wallet, gloves, wheel spanner, and previous German ownership paperwork.
This M3 convertible is a wonderfully presented example poised to deliver driving pleasure to anyone who enjoys the rare combination of performance, exclusivity, and open-air thrills.
