One of the most iconic and sought-after BMW M-Performance cars ever made - enter the 1999 BMW M Coupe. For those who claim BMW doesnt make cars like it used to, the M Coupe is one of the last models to pass muster. Since only 678 cars with the brawny S54 engine ever made it to North America, their value has skyrocketed.
Powered by a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six cribbed from the U.S. spec E36 M3 that made 240 HP through a 5-speed manual transmission. Like any proper sports car, the M Coupe boasts a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Finished in Imola Red with Black leather interior, adding sportiness are hugely flared rear fenders and quad chrome-tipped exhaust pipes. Sit down in the drivers seat, and the first thing youll notice is the large three-spoke steering wheel. Chrome surrounds and leather upholstery support claims of luxury, while a trio of gauges mounted into the center console back the cars sporting intentions. 17-inch wheels. The brakes are four-wheel discs all around, once again sourced from the M3. There are 12.4-inch rotors in front, and 12.3-inch rotors in the rear.
