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 E92 V8 M3 has been fastidiously looked after and cared for by its current owner, and due to lack of private parking, has been stored by Munich Legends for much of the last few years. Equipped with the all-important EDC and with the DCT gearbox, this M3 does drive perfectly. The service history is complete and totally in line with manufacturer guidelines. Our technical team were surprised at how short the condition report was, although since we know how thorough the current owner is, with a great eye for detail, perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised. With low owners, low mileage and the right colour combo, this is actually becoming quite a rare beast, as some of these cars are now showing their age, and in some cases the previous neglect or omission has meant they are no longer such desirable examples.
