BMW E30 M3 1987 Tourenwagen Europameister

£ SOLD

      he E30 M3 requires no introduction to the motoring enthusiast. It has the finest competition history of any tin top racer and will go down in the record books as the single model to have won more international races, rallies and hill climb championships than any other car. Driven by legends like Stuck, Cecotto, Ravaglia, Soper, Pirro, and Quester to name but a few.

The road version has gone down in the history books as the most flattering saloon car chassis of all time.

I have a particular soft-spot for this E30 M3.  At the age of just 21, this was the first E30 M3 I ever drove. This was under the watchful eye of my Dad who was following in the car behind. This was also the first E30 M3 my Dad and I sold. It has remained with the same owner since that sale in 1993. 

 

The specification of this M3 must have made the new price stratospheric.  It’s as if the first owner just ticked every box on the order form. The car was ordered in GB spec by an Englishman living in France where it resided for the first year of its life before being imported to the UK in 1998.  When the car was just six years old and with only 44,000 miles,  we sold the car to the second owner. He enjoyed the car immensely until being sent to China for work in 2000. The car was put in to long-term professional storage by him until his return to the UK earlier this year. On his return the car was delivered to us to put back on the road after her 16 year sabbatical.  Details of that work is listed below. The owners pending retirement has meant that the very difficult decision has been made to find a new home for this very original and interesting E30 M3.  

 

With only two owners from new and a mere 58,000 miles, it is extremely hard to find cars as original as this example.  Having been garaged and in professional storage since 1993,  the shell has survived with no corrosion and has never required any welding or new panels.
