Gorgeous 1999 M Coupe, one of less than 3000 imported to the US. This car will turn heads everywhere it goes with its unique styling and huge BBS rims--the immaculate Imola Red/Black leather interior only adds to the car's wow factor.
The original BMW M Coupe is a high-performance automobile produced by BMW as an answer to the Porsche Carrera. Sold for four short years from late 1998 to 2002, only 2180 of this version M Coupes were sold in North America. Only two generations of the M Coupe have been manufactured, this one being the original E36/8 M Coupe. This 1999 M Coupe has the BMW's S52 3.2 liter inline six cylinder engine (similar engine as the North American E36 M3) with 240 HP and 236 ft-lbs of torque. This car was great to start with, but the owner wanted to "turn it up a notch" and had a Ground Control suspension professionally installed. The agility of the car at normal speeds (>95 mph) is amazing with no give on the corners. The interior is stunning; has to be seen in person to truly appreciate it. The exterior paint is Arctic Sliver and in very good condition for 102K miles. The 3M clear bra has protected the forward part of the hood and the 3M clear bra is also on the rear fender leading edge. This has prevented most chips from road debris.
As a result of their relative rarity, the M Coupes retain more of their value than any other BMW since the E30 M3. In short, this S52 engine 240 HP M Coupe is a minor automotive miracle: It's extremely rare, stunningly unique, immensely capable, and (yes) a supremely satisfying sports coupe. This is a great car which will be enjoyed and admired.
