The original BMW M3, the E30, was purpose-built as a homologation car to satisfy Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) production requirements and would go on to become one of the most legendary sports cars of all time. This 1988 example comes finished in Cinnabar Red over a Natural Bison Leather interior. Powered by its 2.3-liter S14 inline-four paired with a 5-speed manual and a limited-slip differential, this M3 is also equipped with 15” basketweave wheels, a sunroof, and more. It is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida while showing just under 68k miles on the odometer.
Finished in Cinnabar Red, this M3 rides on 15” basketweave wheels wrapped in Yokohama tires from 2017. The E30 M3 is distinguishable from the standard E30 by its wider boxed fenders and M3-specific bumpers, rocker panels, and rear wing. Other equipment includes body-colored mirrors, integrated front fog lights, and dual exhaust outlets. The CARFAX report shows damage in April 2010, detailed images are provided in the gallery.
Inside, this M3 is upholstered with Natural Bison Leather including a three-spoke M-Tech I steering wheel that frames analog VDO instrumentation. Accessories include air conditioning, an AM/FM/cassette radio, a power sunroof, an onboard computer, a power driver's side mirror, and power windows & door locks. The seller believes the interior was reupholstered at some point under previous ownership and Coco floor mats have been added.
Powered by a 2.3-liter inline-four DOHC S14 originally rated for up to 192 HP and 170 lb.-ft of torque, the rear wheels are driven through a Getrag 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. A Racing Dynamics front strut brace has been installed and the seller notes an oil and filter change has been carried out.
This sale will include the owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, sales literature, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I am proud to announce here a beautiful and well-cared-for BMW M3 with 68k miles.”
