Rare manual E92 V8 M3
The V8 (or E9X) model M3 had a tough act to follow, coming directly after the glorious E46. But right from the first drive, it was obvious that BMW had done it again – only arguably better. The F1 derived S65 V8 engine (a close relative or derivative of the V10 S85) was deservedly award winning, but it is also an utter joy to drive. Revving all the way round past 8000rpm, the howl just gets louder and more blood-curdling, but keeps producing results all the way to the red line, making the M3 one of the most exciting cars to drive of its time. The chassis is sublime, the steering – one of the last hydraulic servotronic systems – is brilliant, and the all-round driving experience is utterly unforgettable. The E92 M3 is also reliable, cost effective to run – especially given its performance – and at home on the motorway or racetrack – and anywhere in between. The V8 M3 is without doubt one of our favourite M cars, and most owners would agree.
This particular version is the rare and sought-after manual version, in striking Melbourne red – a rare colour and in perfect unison with the biscuit hide interior. Well looked after and still below average miles, this lovely example has been thoroughly inspected by our workshop team and has been given a hearty thumbs up. With high spec, including extended leather, adaptive headlights, comfort access, folding mirrors and the all-important EDC, this is definitely one to have, especially for manual lovers.
