The BMW E30 M3 marked the beginning of the performance-focused 3 Series and what would become one of the best-driving cars to date. Since its inception in 1986, every 3 Series model has its own iteration of the M3 in a variety of body styles, including a coupé, a convertible, and an estate in 2020.

1992 gave birth to the second generation of the M3 based on the BMW E36 3 Series. The E36 M3 was initially powered by a 3.0 L straight-6 that put out 282 hp through a 5-speed manual transmission in all markets except for the US. In 1995, the model was facelifted with the biggest change being the introduction of a 3.2L I6 that now put out 316 hp through a 6-speed manual transmission.

One year before the facelift, the European market received the limited-edition M3 GT as a racing homologation model to compete in the FIA-GT class II, IMSA GT, and international long-distance races. Under the hood was the Euro-spec S50B30 engine which was further upgraded with larger camshafts and a higher compression ratio that resulted in a higher output of 295 hp compared to the base 282 hp. The M3 GT also benefited from an unrestricted top speed of 275 km/h (171 mph). The UK market received an additional “GT trim” model that only got the cosmetic upgrades of the regular GT and was limited to 50 examples. These are commonly referred to as the M3 Evo Individual. All were finished in Imola Red and right-hand-drive configured.

The M3 GT had other unique features including a deeper and adjustable front splitter, higher rear double wing, aluminum doors, stiffer front suspension, a cross-brace, and a strut brace. Overall, the changes resulted in a loss of 30 kg (66 lb) over the regular M3. Only 356 examples were produced, all in left-hand drive configuration and all painted in British Racing Green over a Mexico Green Leather interior with Amaretta Anthracite bolsters.

The E36 M3 platform has seen an incredible uptick in both popularity and collectability in the last few years. There are a few factors driving this swing, but the largest has been collectors entering the market who grew up lusting after these cars in the 90s. There are few iterations of the E36 platform more special than the M3 GT. With its homologation roots and unique, one-off factory customizations, it truly is not just your average M3. With just 356 examples produced, they do not come up for sale often, and owning one is a unique opportunity. Service history is very important for these cars as they tend to have been driven hard, and staying up on maintenance ensures future reliability. Pricing for the M3 GT has seen a general uptrend over the past 5 years, although given their scant production numbers, not many have made it to market. We see serious buy-hold value potential in these cars, something you can drive and enjoy while reaping the continued uptrend in collectability backed by the car’s low production numbers and significance to the brand as a whole.

This particular example, Chassis # WBSBF99050EA40281, is car number 282 out of the 356 produced. It is finished in British Racing Green over a suede interior with matching green inserts on the seats and door cards. This M3 GT was originally a German market car that was imported into France circa 2002. It has been well maintained since its purchase, with the original service booklet showing routine maintenance stamps up to 146,200 km (90,844 mi) from both countries. Some notable services on file from this period include the VANOS service in April 2010, a new belt tensioner in November 2011, and new front & rear trailing arms in December 2022.

Upon importing the car into the US earlier this year, we entrusted Leading Edge Autosport in West Chester, PA, with performing a major service in February that included a fluid change, spark plugs, drive belt tensioner, idler pulley & caps, left tie rod end, CV axle assembly, shifter bushings, all pedal bushings, right rear spring pad, both steering hoses, a cabin air filter, and reinstalling the factory exhaust. In March of 2024, Bechtel Bavarian in Philadelphia, PA replaced the driveshaft flex joint, the clutch master & slave cylinders along with their fluid, as well as the valve cover gasket. One month later, they also replaced the clutch flywheel, clutch pressure plate & disc, shift rod seal, shift shaft circlips, ST shift bushing, selector rod joint, and the manual transmission fluid. This M3 GT currently shows just over 149,411 km (92,840 mi) on the odometer.

As it sits, this is a highly original and unmodified example with original wheels and relatively low kilometers for one of these cars. The front bumper, hood, and perhaps the fenders have been painted due to rock chips, but the car has no history of accidents. The completed VANOS service, as well as all the other routine maintenance, make this M3 GT an exceptional example of one of BMW’s rarer variants. Do not miss out on the opportunity to own this piece of German motoring history.

Upon purchase, the new owner will receive all of the original owner’s manuals, tools, and all of the service records on file.
