Number 261 of 500, the Misano Red M3 has covered 77,000 miles and looks pretty immaculate for its age, although it has had restorative carried out by Munich Legends. As you’d expect from a vehicle of this stature, it comes with two box files of documentation, photographs and history, along with the original service book and owners handbook. Priced at £39,995 (€46,650), we’ve always loved these machines, but that’s M3 CSL money.
Powered by a 2.3-litre four-cylinder, the Evo 2 was de-catted and featured revised camshaft profiles, pistons and cylinder head intake ports, along with remapped software and a lighter flywheel, resulting in 160 kW (220 hp). Other differences include a deeper front spoiler and additional rear spoiler, larger 7.5 x 16-inch alloy wheels, thinner rear and side window glass and a lighter bootlid.
