The E30 M3 was the first purpose built saloon produced by BMW at their in-house Motorsport Division as a racing homologation special. 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 championships, not to mention the World Touring Car Championship in 1987.
Finished in Brilliant Red with a Black leather interior, this M3 is a euro AK05 215BHP catalyst model with a 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 later. It has now covered a total of just under 80,000 miles.
