With its two previous generations firmly cemented as performance legends, BMW introduced a new M3 to the public in 2001. Based on the advanced E46 architecture introduced in 1997, the new M3 was a great leap forward in terms of outright performance, mostly stemming from the new S54 straight-six engine that produced a stout 333 hp in US-specification cars. Bulging bodywork covering larger wheels and tires, along with bigger brakes, revised suspension, and a torque-sensing differential rounded out the substantive changes over more pedestrian versions of the E46.

This stunning 2002 M3 coupe occupies a place at the top of E46-generation M3 hierarchy, featuring low mileage, a rare color, and the six-speed manual gearbox. Finished in desirable Laguna Seca Blue over a gray leather interior, this M3 remains in impeccable condition with just 19,608 miles at the time of cataloguing. Documented by a copy of its window sticker, this M3 was sent new to BMW of Arlington, Virginia, and options included bi-xenon headlights and a Harman Kardon sound system. Importantly, this M3 is a factory sunroof delete model, offering that added bit of cache to those who prefer the most sporting specification.

Accompanied by tools, manuals, CARFAX Vehicle History Report, and even its original Motorola StarTAC telephone, this M3 stands ready to bring smiles to the face of a new owner.
