BMW E46 M3
nthusiasts will debate for decades to come which M3 was the best. Any of you that know me will be aware that my roots date back to the revered E30 M3. I grew up with them and love homologation specials with competition pedigree. That said, one would argue that the E46 M3 will go down in the history books as the most all round, multi-tasking M3 of all time. Utter day to day usability blended with track day ability for the weekends.
The E46 M3 wore a Savile Row suit during the week with the ability to pound the race circuits of Europe at the weekends. At the heart of the M3 is the now legendary, award winning S54 engine. An in-line 6-cylinder, 24 valve, 3,246 CC, twin cam with double Vanos and managed by Siemens sophisticated engine management, which made it possible to achieve 343 bhp, 365 Nm of torque whilst returning over 30 mpg if cruising. This clever power plant is the key to these cars split personality and multi-tasking abilities.
Due to the extraordinary day to day usability of these M3s, it is now extremely hard to find low milage, well cared for examples. Most saw many winters of daily driving on our salted roads causing corrosion to take hold. Many fell in to the wrong hands, saw endless modifications for track use and lacked the proper maintenance that they deserved.
This M3 is exceptionally well known to us at Classic Heroes. The car has been part of a small collection for the last 10 years and we have now been asked to find this M3 a new owner. It is extremely important that their car goes to a home they approve.
The owner has extremely high standards and during the 10 years we have cared for the car, it has wanted for nothing. Not just mechanically maintained perfectly to ensure turnkey motoring, the body shell has been properly cleaned, detailed and future-proofed, ensuring that this E46 M3 is one of the few corrosion free examples left in existence. We have available the underside photographs showing just how superb the car is underneath and properly protected with clear cavity wax. This M3 has wanted for nothing.
