The BMW M3 has started a legacy that has yet to end over the past 30 years. When the E30 M3 was launched in 1985 it was done so to keep BMW current and competitive with Mercedes-Benz who had just released the 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth. As it made its way on the track in Touring Car Championships around the globe, it soon became a real contender and the benchmark for BMW Performance. The M3 has won at world-renowned races such as the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, World Touring Car Championship Driver’s Title in 1987, and countless wins across the globe on both tarmac circuits and rally settings.
By 1988 BMW finally started delivering “U.S. spec” examples of the M3 to North America, both factory and privateer teams immediately put them to work on the track. A small enthusiast’s base was quickly growing for the new M Car, and would ultimately prove to be a love affair with the brand and the basis for BMW to keep making more units and further improving their technology.
This 3.0-liter, 240-hp inline six-cylinder engine is an elegant work of machinery. It is paired with a five-speed manual transmission, and is also equipped with power steering and ventilated four-wheel disc brakes. This vehicle also has power windows, air conditioning, sunroof, BMW Premium Sound system with CD player, limited-slip differential, BMW Motorsport suspension, Halogen headlights and foglights, heated front seats (with tasteful “M” accents), handsome factory alloy wheels and cruise control.
This BMW M3 is reported to be in “great condition” with approximately 70,000 actual miles that has been taken care of since new. The car is fully documented and is accompanied by its original window sticker and “every service receipt since the day it was bought.” 1995 BMW M3 Coupe
