  • Enthusiasts will debate for decades to come which M3 was the best. Any of you that know me will be aware that my roots date back to the revered E30 M3. I grew up with them and love homologation specials with competition pedigree. That said, one would argue that the E46 M3 will go down in the history books as the most all round, multi-tasking M3 of all time. Utter day to day usability blended with track day ability when required. Another debate that continues is which E46 M3 to own. Well, they ...

  • The designation “Highline” introduced by BMW during 1987, even by 1980s extravagance, could not be exaggerated. It took BMWs awesome, high performance flagship GT car to new heights in luxury. Every possible part of the interior was trimmed in BMWs highest specification of leather. The headlining, sun visors, pillars, rear parcel shelf, complete, glovebox, undertrays, centre console sections, seats, armrests, side trims and door panels were all trimmed in beautifully stitched Nappa leather. ...

  • We are often offered E36 M3s for stock and they are usually sent packing. They just do not meet our strict criteria. Like all cars they go through that stage of life when value tends to attract the hooligan. Now, there is a touch of the automotive hooligan in me but my cars are beautifully cared for. Sadly, most E36 M3’s have covered intergalactic mileage, fallen into the wrong hands, and proper age-related maintenance is distinctly lacking. We are also often guilty of forgetting the age of ...

  • The 850 CSI is still considered by many as the last true Bahn storming, low volume, BMW M built GT Car. Only 160 of these very special and highly expensive cars were built over a 3-year period in right hand drive. It is as close as we got to the M8 with BMW having canned the M8 after the production of just one prototype. It was a change of direction for BMW M that lead to the decision that the M badge no longer lived on a big GT car. The 850 CSI was largely BMW M inspired with a massive input from ...

  • Luxury GT or Sports car? The fact is that the 840 Ci did both exceptionally well especially when blended with the Sport pack. The car truly was an awesome all rounder. A stunning long distance GT car that still gave the enthusiast owner an exciting sporty drive. Very clever really and I don’t think any of us realised just how good it was when launched. We were all guilty of living in the shadow of the 6 series especially the M635 CSI. It was also great to see a pillar-less coupe again from BMW, ...

  • We simply could not turn this one away. Its not an M3, its not an Alpina but it did take our breath away. The lady that owns the car is a great friend of one of our very oldest customers. He tipped us off about the car and asked if it was of interest. To be honest, I was not taking the conversation that seriously until my chum explained that his friend had bought the car brand new from BMW Park Lane, so one owner, the car had only covered 33,000 miles, came with a 100% complete BMW main ...

We are always pleased to see an old friend return to us for sale, this one in particular as falls into one of the very best and a car that is well known to us here at Classic Heroes. We know and have good relationships with the last two fastidious owners of this car. This sat alongside an extensive and ...

  • The E34 M5 Touring brings back truly fantastic memories. I recollect many family holidays to Cornwall and attending race meets here and abroad, loaded to the brim with luggage, kids and the dog in these 340 bhp super estates. When my wife announced to me at 2am that she had gone into labour with Zak, it was an Avus blue M5 Touring that I used to whisk her to hospital. ?In the mid-90s, wherever I went, these cars always caused a stir. I recall a chap peering through the front wheels and saying ...

  • Just 524 right-hand-drive examples of the E24 M635 CSI were built between 1985 and 1989, and even today the M635 CSI offers an unrivalled blend of exclusivity, build quality,practicality and effortless continent crossing performance. The touring capability of these superb coupes still impresses today. An excellently appointed cabin, with the trademark 70’ & 80’s BMW ‘acres of glass’ for first rate vision, a lavish array of creature comforts such as full leather, sports seats, air conditioning, ...

  • Despite being born in a digital age and equipped with the many digital tools our modern, busy lives demand, the 1M retains that true analogue feel that the old school motoring enthusiast still craves. BMW fully succeeded in delivering this. Simplicity was the key. Rear wheel, drive, front engine, proper manual gearbox with a clutch and plenty of German horses under the bonnet. We live in an era of hands free dialling, touch screen controls and flappy paddles. The 1M with its 6 speed manual gearbox ...

  • The Sport Evolution (Evo 3) was the final homologation and the most advanced version of the already highly successful E30 M3. Six hundred Sport Evolutions, or EVO III’s as they are sometimes known, were built Worldwide between December 1989 and March 1990. Available only in Brilliant Red or Jet Black, they were powered by the already legendary S14 motor, but this time in 2.5 litre form. The result was an increase in power to 238bhp at 7000rpm and 177lb ft of torque at 4750 rpm. Unique bodywork ...

  • It’s only with the benefit of hindsight you can see how truly special the E46 M3 CSL was and still is. It’s only when you fit yourself snuggly in the Recaro seats and place your hands on the alcantara trimmed wheel do you get an inkling of what a beast this car still is. The modifications required to earn an M3 a CSL badge are legion. Alongside that engine and carbon air box comes carbon-fibre roof, carbob-fibre bumpers, revised suspension, modified brakes, quicker steering and a paddle-operated ...

  • A very exciting opportunity has arrived in the form of this E30 M3 Ravaglia, one of only 25 Ravaglia’s that were built for the UK. The Ravaglia featured the engine from the Evo 2 but was installed with a catalytic converter, hence the 5 bhp reduction to 215bhp. The engine cam cover and the plenum chamber where painted in one of only three body colours (Misano red, Macao blue and Nogaro silver). The front and rear additional spoilers from the Evo 2 were used along with lightened bumper irons, ...

Driven by legends like Stuck, Cecotto, Ravaglia, Soper, Pirro, and Quester to name but a few. The road version has gone down in the history books as the most flattering saloon car chassis of all time. It is now very rare ...

  • Sitting in the driver’s seat of any E9X M3 variant for the first time, immediately takes you back to your youth. When a bulge in a bonnet raised eyebrows and caused you to drool and ponder what lurked under the hood. Back then it was usually a bank of thirsty Webers or a fuel guzzling Holley Double Pumper. Today a large black plenum chamber nestling between either bank of this 4 litre V8 is why that tell-tale bonnet bulge is required. The first thing you see when you open the bonnet is that ...

  • During the late 1980‘s and early 1990‘s Italy and Portugal levied a large luxury car tax on any vehicle over 2 litres. As a result, the E30 325 and the M3 were heavily penalised. This market peculiarity gave birth to a unique, rare and inspired car. The 1990cc 320is was an elegant solution which gave an affordable but still very sporty alternative to the 325i and the M3. BMW produced a total of 3648 E30 320is between 9/1987 and 11/1990 of which only 2542 were in two door form (code name AK95). Still ...

  • The first generation of BMW 4 series was launched in 2013 and proved very popular across the US and European markets. They were produced in 2 door coupe, convertible and 4 door GT. The range had varying engine formats covering both petrol and diesel, from 3 cylinder to straight 6, single and twin turbocharged units. In 2014 BMW introduced the F82/F83 M4 models, F82 being the coupe and F83 a convertible. Both were powered by the S55 twin-turbocharged 3.0 litre straight six engine and depending on ...

  • The 911 was already 21 years old in 1984 and believed by many to be out of date and old fashioned. The factory effort was focused on developing the 924, 944 and 928 but thanks to an army of devoted 911 customers, a vociferous dealer network and new board member Helmuth Bott, the legendary 911 model was saved from the scrapheap and the 3.2 Carrera was born. “Driving in its purest form” is how the sales brochure describes the 3.2 Carrera. With a 3,164cc flat 6 engine, producing 231 bhp and ...

The 50 right hand drive cars produced for the UK market where badged engineering. They had only the cosmetics details of the true M3 GT and painted in British Racing Green.

  • Unique. Fascinating. Brutal. Unprecedented. Head-Turner. Beautiful. Just some of the words that over time have been used to describe BMW’s extravagant, 400 BHP, all aluminium Z8 roadster. Its flamboyant entrance to the model lineup in 1999 certainly turned heads and guaranteed its place as one of the most fascinating cars ever produced by BMW in its near 100 year history. The Z8’s origin and inspiration date back to the 1950’s when Count Albrecht Graf Goetz laid pen to paper and conjured ...

  • Isn’t it funny, when we buy a new car the last thing we spare little or no thought for are the accessories it comes with. Over the years, kids pilfer them to repair their bikes, never to be returned or, we use, abuse and lose them with not a care in the world. But as time rushes by and our pride and joy transitions from new car to classic car, our thought process changes. That one missing spanner, screw driver or original first aid kit is the only thing left to think about. It drives us mad! ...

The first generation M535 (E12), launched at the Frankfurt Show in 1979, was the first series-production saloon to wear the now distinctive M badge.

  • The BMW M coupe always had a lot to live up to. Conceived by five engineers working overtime and undercover, it set out to be a no-holds-barred return to the enthusiast-focused philosophy upon which BMW once built its reputation. Back in 1998 this was the car for those who found the M3 too soft, too understated, and the M roadster too fragile. Still beloved by many of M’s senior engineers today, there is no getting away from the fact this particular masterpiece from Munich is a pedigree Rottweiler ...

  • So why Misano Red? The colour was named after the beautiful Italian race circuit and reserved for use on only Evo 2, Cecotto and Ravaglia M3s. Only a handful of guys have managed the transition from two wheels to four with any success. Johnny Cecotto is one of them. His career started in his home country of Venezuela on bikes and at the young age of just 18 years old became the national champion. He then won the championship again in 74.
