A gorgeous Imola Red M Roadster, freshly serviced with only 23k miles from new.

DEPOSIT TAKEN - SIMILAR REQUIRED /// Please get in contact if you are thinking of selling a similar classic car.

Imola Red paintwork, Imola Red and Black Nappa leather upholstery, Heated seats, Electric windows, Electrically-adjustable door mirrors, M leather steering wheel, Limited slip differential, Remote central locking, Electric folding soft-top in black, Velour floor mats, Air conditioning, BMW cassette radio with 6 CD changer, Removable wind deflector, Warning triangle, Tyre inflator, BMW first aid kit, Spare key.

Those voluptuous Imola Red curves look marvelous under our studio lighting. The dazzling paintwork remains in fine order with no scratches, dings, lacquer peel, or corrosion to be found. On very close inspection there are just a handful of light stone chips at the front end, with areas such as the wing mirrors and flared arches amazingly free from unsightly blemishes. The electric-folding soft-top also remains in excellent shape, the car having always been correctly stored when not in use.

The two-tone Nappa leather sports seats are in superb condition. Free from any damage or notable wear to the bolsters, the leather remains feeling supple throughout. The black and red combo extends to the door cards and centre console, all in particularly fine order with no scratches or marking to the delicate trim. Pleasingly the original cassette radio is still fitted, and commonly worn items such as the steering wheel show almost no signs of any use. The carpets are perfectly clean throughout and are protected in the footwells by the original set of black overmats. The boot area is also spotlessly clean and still home to the BMW CD changer.

Being an earlier example, this M Roadster is equipped with the brilliant S50 straight-six that produces an impressive 317hp. With no kind of electronic traction or stability control system, it is certainly not for the faint-hearted. On test, the slick 5-speed manual gearbox remains feeling tight and precise, handling the engine’s power perfectly. The car was most recently serviced (Inspection I) in June 2020 at the current mileage of 23, 500. Since arriving at 4 Star we have also had the car fully inspected and MOT’d for the new keeper’s peace of mind.

The 17-inch M RoadStar alloys fill the arches perfectly, the deep rear dish giving the Z3 a very broad and aggressive stance. The wheels present in fine order with no unsightly curb marking to speak of. They are wrapped in a matching set of premium Bridgestone Potenza tyres with ample tread remaining. Following inspection the front brake discs and pads have just been replaced at the current mileage with genuine BMW parts.

This rare Imola Red example was supplied new by David Prentice Cars Limited in April 1998. It received its all-important running-in inspection at 1, 235 miles and has now covered a total of just 23k miles in the hands of only three careful owners. It was purchased by the current owner in 2014, the previous owner having bought it from BMW way back in December 2000.

When not in use this stunning example has always been stored correctly, which is evident not only from the fantastic condition of the paintwork and roof, but also of the interior and underside (additional photos available upon request). Despite its low mileage the car has been serviced at close mileage intervals, which are as follows: 1k, 6k, 13k, 21k, 22k, 22k, 23k, and most recently again at 23k miles in June 2020, which was an Inspection I. We have also just had the car fully inspected and MOT’d, with new brake pads and discs fitted at the front.
