Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this special low-mileage BMW M3 which has cosmetic Evolution specification and has recently benefitted from a raft of pre-sale recomissioning. Developed directly from motorsport, the BMW M3 was the first car of its type. With its numerous championship victories in touring car racing, the M3 quickly became one of the most iconic vehicles in the BMW M line-up. The legend of the iconic M3 badge was born.

DESCRIPTION

The idea behind the M3 was to make a racing car available as a road car. The M3 became a roaring success, on road and on track. The Group A regulations required that at least 5000 road-legal copies of a racing car had to be sold within 12 months to enable racing homologation.

The BMW Racing braking system with ABS and ventilated discs, ensured that it stopped as well as it went, and the suspension and damping were designed with racing in mind. The Getrag 265 5-speed dog leg gearbox was straight from the track. Not much more than the roof and doors remained from the regular E30 road cars.

The revised 4 cylinder engine was completely revised for the M3. Low weight, high torque and durability remained, but the displacement was enlarged to 2,300 cc and a four valve head was integrated. Maximum output was 200 hp. Ideas and technology honed in the legendary BMW M1 race car transformed the M3. The 6.15 kg/hp weight ratio still impresses today. The front and rear bumpers, side skirts, bootlid and spoiler were fashioned from lightwieght composites. The C-pillar was also flattened to improve the aerodynamics. The rear wing, and wider wheel arches completed the distinctive shape. Race versions of the M3 clinched victory in the World, European, and DTM titles amongst many other accolades.

Delivered to the USA in December 1987, our car was brought to the UK in 1989, and has had just 2 keepers since. It boasts a very impressive service history, and is complete with original gloss white BMW book pack, stamped service book, historic MOT’s, Carfax check, BMW Group Classic dating letter, service invoices and spare key. A new Milltek high flow sports exhaust system provides a wonderful soundtrack to this super example of a modern BMW classic.  A 12-month written warranty is also included.  Available to view now at our London showroom.
