In 1992, BMW launched the second generation of its M3 high-performance 3-Series with a new body style, chassis, and 6-cylinder S50 engine which offered an increase of nearly 100 HP over the original M3. This 1995 example is finished in Avus Blue over a Mulberry Nappa leather interior and is reported to be one of only 67 coupes in this color combination equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission. It was originally optioned with the Luxury Package and Cold Weather Package and is said to have been garage-stored and sparingly driven by its previous owner. Acquired by the seller in early 2022, this M3 shows approximately 62k miles on the odometer and is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Pennsylvania.
The exterior is finished in Avus Blue (276) with high gloss black Shadowline trim. Equipment includes model-specific front and rear bumpers, Luxury Package molded side skirts, aerodynamic M mirrors, pop-up quarter windows, fog lamps, Euro-style clear tail lights, a fixed rear wing, and dual exhaust tips. The seller notes a small scuff on the underside of the driver’s side bumper, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The 17” BMW Style 23 “M-Contour” wheels are mounted with Bridgestone Potenza tires displaying date codes from 2007.
The interior is upholstered in Mulberry Nappa leather, which extends from the power-adjustable heated seats to the Luxury Package patterned door panels, complimented by black carpets and fine wood trim adorning the center console, gear shift lever, and dashboard inserts. Amenities include a power sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, power accessories, cruise control, an M-Sport leather-wrapped steering wheel, M3-branded instrumentation, M3 door sill guards, an onboard computer, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, a 6-CD changer, front and rear Coco floor mats, and a heated drivers side door lock and heated mirrors as provided by the Cold Weather Package.
The 1995 E36 M3 is powered by a 3.0L S50 inline-six, which was factory rated at 240 HP and 225 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by a 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The seller reports a chassis X-brace reinforcement has been installed under the vehicle, and regular oil changes have been performed including an oil and filter service less than 300 miles ago.
This sale will include a clean title and service documentation.
