The E30 M3 was the first purpose built saloon produced by BMW as a racing homologation special by BMW's in house Motorsport division. Introduced in 1986 as a road car it dominated Touring Car racing throughout the World taking countless titles including the prestigious German, Australian and British titles, not to mention the World Touring Car Championship in 1987.

Finished in Brilliant Red with black leather interior, this M3 is a euro AK05 215BHP catalyst model with 5-speed Getrag 265 "dogleg" gearbox. Supplied new on 23rd October 1990 by BMW Akteingesellscaft Munich, it was imported into the UK and registered in October 2001 almost exactly 11 years after. It has now covered a total of just under 80,000 miles.

This particular example has been fastidiously maintained as detailed in the comprehensive history file. This includes the original service booklet, original German registration documents, along with a large folder of service invoices and MOT certificates. Specification includes electric sunroof, central locking, 16" BMW alloys wheels and electric mirrors.

All of the original handbooks are present in their original folder with a full compliment of tools in the tool-tray.

Fitted with 4 new Toyo tyres on newly refurbished wheels - it has even been treated to a new set of wheel badges and a fully functioning original Bavaria sound system. Un-abused, un-modified and cherished examples such as this are becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially with such low mileage and detailed history.
