2002 BMW Z3 ///M Coupe: 1-Owner. One Of BMW's Lowest Produced ///M Models. 1 of Only 340 Produced For 2002 With Total Production Sitting At 2,858. S54 And Sunroof Equipped.
Because offering what's ultra-desirable, infrequently available and seen is the standard at RFMC, presented is one of the most lauded, legendary, and highly sought-after BMW M cars from the early 2000s. Within the past 20 years, there lies an immensely small segment of cars that have reached classic status in such a relatively short amount of time; even fewer that boasts the cult-following that the M Coupe has amassed. To put its notoriety into perspective, a same year, similar colored and equipped example with a 6,XXX mile difference, sold on the automotive enthusiast site, BaT Auctions, for just under $74,000 USD.
The E36/8 Z3 M Coupe wasn't originally thought of by BMW but rather by the engineers who weren't too appeased by the roofless variant's rigidity, which in turn made way for the creation of the M Coupe. It was conceived on the premises of offering a car that was genuinely enthusiast minded (created by enthusiasts for enthusiasts) by way of positioning a pure driving experience and unadulterated performance to the forefront, without it being reductive; something that is greatly missing today.
Presented is the utmost desired of M Coupes; 1 of the only 687 S54 powered examples with it being 1 of the last 340 final year produced specimens for 2002! The fabled engine first appeared in BMW's upstanding (albeit much heavier) 2001 ///M3. With the esteemed high-revving S54 engine married to the Z3 Coupe's relatively light-weight chassis, it authentically plays up to BMW's "The Ultimate Driving Machine" signature motto; tie this in with the added pleasure of a manual transmission....pure bliss! It's a car that is not only fundamentally mechanical and analog in the performance department but is also distinctively unique in appearance. Finished in Titanium Silver Metallic exterior (1 of only 544 units to be featured in this color out of the Z3 Coupe's 1998 to 2002 production run; while it's interior color selection is only 1 of 363 for the run), with it's Dakota Leather interior completed in black, this salivating-inducing 1-Owner example displays a very low 15, XXX miles from new.
