The BMW Z3 series is a classic motoring icon from the mid 1990’s. A high profile introduction in the 1995 James Bond Film ‘Goldeneye’ generated one of BMW’s highest ever pre-launch orders and the car remains popular with enthusiasts. Based on the 3 series E36 platform, early models were designated E36/7 and featured E36 engines. Facelift models were designated E36/8 and included engines from the latest E46 3 series. Presented here is a last off the line facelift model with an E46 M54B30 3 litre engine, producing 231 bhp at 3900rpm. With new rear lights, wider axel, chromed headlights and several other new features the facelift versions are the highlight of the Z3 range.
