History of the M Coupe

When the director of design at BMW first saw the coupé version of the Z3, there was a long silence, not least because this was 'mocked-up' by a handful of dedicated designers during evenings and weekends. Like the GT6 and MGBGT, two acknowledged influences, this wasn't just a convertible with a hardtop. The entire chassis was redesigned, the roof lengthened, more power added and finer under the skin details. The M Coupé was voted by Top Gear magazine as one of 'the 149 coolest cars ever'.

The Car

Manufactured for a retail customer in December 1998, supplied to Barons of Heathrow and specified with Estoril Napper leather, non smoker pack, front side airbags, Grad Tint windscreen and the BMW business CD RDS system, this Z3M Coupé was then registered to its first owner on 8th January 1999. Presented in what, many believe, is the most desirable colour combination of Estoril Blue with black leather and blue inserts, this impressive S50 Z3M Roadster has covered 73,000 miles from new. Our vendor has owned the car since 2015. He purchased this after a tireless search for an enthusiast owned example which was eventually found in the Netherlands sitting alongside countless other collectible and rare BMWs.

Unfortunately, in 2001 the car was stolen and subsequently recovered by the police, consequently the car was placed as a category D insurance claim. Therefore our vendor has had the car condition inspected by AutoLign to ensure any repair works carried out were to a high standard. He was pleased to find they were and as such the car is now listed as 'condition inspected' and no longer as a category D car. The details of this can be found in the history file, which the vendor describes as a very complete history file, along with a folder full of invoices and receipts for work completed on the car.

The car has a current MoT test certificate valid until September 2019 which importantly was obtained with no advisories. This BMW is presented in very good order throughout and given the low mileage is certainly a sought-after car. This could prove to be a fantastic purchase for any BMW Z3M fan with values for these coupés ever increasing.

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.
