Diamond Schwartz Metallic
sweden (US delivery early August 2022)
The iconic E30 was the first M3 in a lineage that would span more than 30 years. Based on the standard E30 coupe version, the M was extensively re-worked. The C-pillars were different and the trunk was shorter. The front and rear fenders were enlarged in order to accommodate the new suspension and wider track. This car was meticulously assembled by the previous owner in Sweden to resemble the factory evolution cars, with aerodynamic elements such as an extension for the front apron and aggressive rear wing.

The BMW M3 E30 was the first M3 and the most successful touring car ever, with more than 1500 victories in its class. The series model became a motorsports icon since its start, in 1986.
In order to be able to start in the touring championship series, a car should have been produced in at least 5000 units per year and the race model should have numerous parts in common with the production model. Those were the regulations and BMW struggled to find a way to get to the start. So, it built a race-car and then it made it suitable for the road and started to sell it. It was a blast, despite the fears of the sales department.
The E30 M3 went on to find success in European rally racing, notching a win in the 1987 WRC Tour de Corse at the hands of French rally driver Bernard Beguin.
The upgraded interior features leather seats with BMW motorsport accents, red seat belts and is in excellent condition overall.
The vehicle was repainted in the original Diamond Schwartz Metallic yet retains all the original decals in the motor bay. Concourse quality can be found through out.
There are no signs of corrosion, no odd rattles or other noises. The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner and runs flawlwessly
