Up for auction is this 2010 BMW E92 M3 Coupe finished in Interlagos Blue Metallic over a Bamboo Beige Novillo leather interior. The fourth generation of BMW's venerable M3, the E92 has become sought after for its high-revving 4.0L V8 engine, precise steering, and utility as an everyday sports car. This 3-owner 2010 example features a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, a desirable “single hump” dashboard with no iDrive system, and a fixed carbon-fiber roof panel. Showing just under 56k miles on the odometer, this E92 M3 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of South Dakota.
This M3 is finished in Interlagos Blue Metallic (A30) and recently received a full paint correction. M3-specific details include high-gloss Shadowline trim, fender vents with integrated LED turn signals, revised bumpers and side skirts, an aluminum power dome hood, quad exhaust tips, a rear decklid spoiler, adaptive Xenon headlights, and a carbon-fiber roof panel. The seller has fitted black kidney grills, painted reflectors, and carbon fiber mirror caps; the original pieces are said to accompany the sale. The seller notes the front bumper had been previously refinished to address road-going wear and states a few minor chips are present on the hood, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This E92 retains its original 18” BMW Style 219 wheels which come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires showing date codes from 2020.
The driver-oriented cabin features heated and power-adjustable sport seats upholstered in Bamboo Beige Novillo leather with matching door panels and Titanium Shadow trim. In lieu of the common iDrive system, this M3 features a standard BMW Professional radio with a HiFi sound system. This rare option eliminates the screen from the center dashboard, providing for a clean and less distracting space. A leather-wrapped three-spoke M-Sport multifunction steering wheel sits ahead of titanium accented instrumentation. Standard features include automatic climate control, cruise control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The seller describes the interior to have been nicely preserved with only minor wear noted on the driver’s side seat bolster.
The E92 M3 is powered by a naturally aspirated high-compression S85 4.0L V8 engine that generates up to 414 HP at 8,300 RPM. Utilizing a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a Variable M limited-slip differential, the M3 can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.8 seconds up to an electronically governed top speed of 155 MPH. This M3 has recently received new valve cover gaskets, a new oil filter adapter, and an oil service all within the last 5k miles. There are no records of the rod bearings or throttle actuators being replaced.
This sale will include the original mirror covers and kidney grilles, a set of two keys, and a clean title. Increasingly valuable and hard to come by, the E92 M3 has grown to become one of the most sought-after BMWs on the market. Do not miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this tastefully appointed 2010 example.
