The Z3:
The Z3 was introduced in '95 and was available in a host of flavours throughout the model's lifespan. Come '97, the M52B28 2,793 cc straight-six with 192 PS and 275 Nm of torque was introduced - bar the M models, the top-of-the-range powerplant available at that point. The Z3 2.8 was designed with spirited, long-distance touring in mind, leaning on the tantalizing torque the straight six produced. If specified right, with some M-gismos like an LSD, M suspension and potentially even a manual gearbox for example... The Z3 2.8 is a car to be reckoned with and one you could happily take your wife on vacation with as well!
This Z3 2.8 manual:
This Z3 was originally supplied on the 8th of August 1997 by well-known dealer Jost GMBH of Hagen. An original, manual gearbox, Wide-Body German-market car, specified in wonderful M-colour Arktissilber over a Taninred leather interior. This Z3 was elaborately specced with a so-called "sonderaustattung" which consisted of many optional extra's.

Over the course of its life this Z3 has just covered a mere 123.600 km's with just 3 private German owners. We sourced her directly from the last caretaker, an enthusiast who used her sparingly during the Spring and summer as part of a collection. Accompanied by a complete service history, the car is currently suited with its German papers and can be supplied on Dutch plates with a fresh MOT if desired. Accompanied by two sets of keys and all documentation one could wish for - and then some.
The best Z3 2.8 available today? Probably.
