After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
This 2002 BMW M3 convertible is a backroads burner that doubles as a fun day cruiser for four. So when you find a one-owner, low-mileage example like this, you know youve discovered a modern classic kept to collectible standards. The M3 used to be about hiding aggression beneath an everyday commuter body, but this generation likes to be a bit more obvious. The integrated factory body kit, power bulge in the hood, wide fender flares, 18-inch wheels, and quad tailpipes give it a dose of attitude. And the Titanium Silver Metallic retains a terrific factory shine. So this one is going to get a nickname like Quicksilver in your garage. And this one really does deserve the prime spot, because its a one owner car that has only averaged about 2k miles annually. So it was given proper care, and it really shows. The black convertible top fits snugly and looks good against the factory silver. But for true distinction, you want to be open to the world. After all, theres just something extra sporty about a car with a red leather interior. And just like the exterior, the difference a one-owner car makes is seen in the quality condition of the upholstery, door panels, dash, carpeting, and other fundamentals. Youll also love this for the long list of modern features. This M3 comes loaded with features like cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, and a full AM/FM premium audio system with CD changer. You also can keep the power convertible top down any time of the year thanks to automatic climate control and heated seats. Plus, you even have options that you wouldnt find on other cars in this price range, like rain-sensing wipers and bi-xenon headlights. A modern classic also means modern safety features such as dual front airbags, full side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. But even with all these luxuries, youll be reminded this is a true drivers car the moment you grab the three-spoke sports steering wheel (note the red and blue stitching in the leather.) And you have the choice between paddle shifting or the stick. The seats are extremely comfortable because BMW spends a lot of time in the engineering department to make sure that you can power adjust them to strike the perfect balance of keeping you planted during hard cornering, while also being comfortable enough to always take the long way home. The 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder motor is a marvel of engineering. BMW built it to sing happily all the way up to 8,000 RPM, but it also has the sensibilities to drive the commute with ease. Its all up to you and how you want to row through the SMG automated manual six-speed transmission. BMW is one of the best companies at engineering chassis, and so the fully independent suspension of the M3 has often been at the top of the enthusiast magazines wish lists. Add this to four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, sport tires, and a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, and now you know why an M3 will always get respect on the road. The sale comes complete with the original dealer invoice and owners manual packet. The BMW M3 is often a car you promised yourself one day, and if you act quick enough, this exceptionally well preserved can make your dream much more affordable than you ever hoped. Call today!!!
