Seller Description

The “Clown Shoe” BMW… It seems you either love it or hate it, but then we suspect the only “haters” are those who have never driven one.

Developed by a team of engineers under Burkhard Göschel, the goal in developing the coupe was to improve the rigidity of the Z3 roadster, and create the ultimate “Ultimate Driving Machine.” The team succeeded, and in doing so also created what might be one of the best sports cars of it’s time. Early U.S. models were equipped with the 240 hp. S52 engine. Though a good performer, the legend of the M Coupe was solidified with the introduction of the 315 hp S54 in 2001. Paired with the slick-shifting ZF gearbox, and limited slip differential, this combination proved to be the stuff of driving enthusiasts’ dreams. In 2016 Automobile Magazine wrote: “with 315 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, you don’t have to do the math to figure out what happens when you stuff a big, bawdy motor under the hood of a small car.”

This car, chassis #WBSCN93491LK60326 is one of only 678 S54 powered M Coupes. Of those, 17 were delivered in this car’s combination of  Black Sapphire Metallic over Dark Beige Oregon. Rare? Yes! Sitting on Koni shocks with TC Kline springs and camber plates, this car handles like a dream. Fun to drive? Yes! The stock shocks are included with the car, along with receipts showing all critical maintenance performed. Well cared for? YES! What’s not to like? If you reply “the styling,” you need to get behind the wheel...

Price reduced to $40,000 from $48,500 which is much better

This coupe was listed by a dealership in Vermont late last year. I'm curious what the option BBS wheels are, because I don't think we've seen them before. It still has the lighter hypersilver roadstars. This time the price seems a little optimistic.
