This exquisite example is finished in a bright shade of Dakar Yellow, an iconic shade of the period which makes for a perfect combination of the M-Coupes striking lines and dynamic presence. The paintwork presents in fine order with few stone chips or blemishes, the only mark a touched in key scratch on the rear quarter. All of the black window surrounds and chrome details are in good condition and provide excellent contrast to the yellow paintwork.

The two-tone leather sports seats are in excellent condition and remain free from any sagging or damage, still feeling firm and supportive. The smart black and grey two-tone combination offers layers of depth that is carried through to the door cards and centre console, all of which is in fine order with no scuffs or marks. The chrome additions to dials, gear gaiter, dash rings and light pull switch provide a stylish lift to a beautifully finished cabin with all switch gear feeling solid to operate and showing minimal wear.

The carpets are perfectly clean throughout, protected in the foot-wells with a set of black over-mats showing no signs of wear. All of the tools and spare wheel are still present, situated under the boot carpet which remains spotlessly clean.

Start up and test are faultless, with the venerable inline 6 providing plenty of torque to ensure that the car is as happy at cruise as climbing the revs – a perfect compliment to the long ratio 5 speed ‘box and the handling characteristics of this potent sports GT. Having never covered more than 6k miles in between services the engine and drivetrain are in excellent health.

The ZF Type C 5-speed manual gearbox feels tight and precise shifting through the gears, handling the power perfectly.

This M Coupe sits on the correctly finished 17″ Starfish wheels with the deep rear dish on the rear providing that typically broad, aggressive stance. With matching Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres showing plenty of tread.

The brakes feel strong and confident bringing the car to a standstill quickly and smoothly.
