The M3's third iteration arrived in October 2000 following the introduction of the E46 series in 1998. On this occasion though, there would be no saloon version, the new M3 being available only as a Coupé or a Convertible, while the power unit was BMW's 3. 2-litre S54-type six-cylinder engine producing 338bhp. There was a choice of two transmissions: a six-speed manual Getrag or SMG (Sequential Manual Gearbox) that used an electro-hydraulically actuated clutch (no clutch pedal) to shift the Getrag's six gears. Top speed was limited to 'only' 155mph (250km/ h), though it was suggested that, free of restrictions, a maximum of around 170mph (270km/ h) would be achievable.
This beautiful left-hand drive M3 coupé was purchased new by the late owner from Zwartepoorte Roosendall BV BMW in the Netherlands in July 2001. The purchase receipt is on file listing the following options: metallic paint (black); red leather interior; rear airbags; heat insulating glass; electric heated front seats; navigation with TV tuner; and a Harmon Kardon hi-fi stereo system. The BMW was registered in two friends' names on the UK V5 but remained in the original purchaser's ownership. The car was last serviced in April 2021 by Grosvenor Motor Co, receiving new track rods, an oil service, and four-wheel alignment. The service book is stamped from new by BMW agents and BMW specialists, and the car also comes with its original leather wallet, handbooks, and three keys. The M3 is MoT'd to April 2022 and will be driven to the sale. It should be noted that a tracker device is fitted.
