We’ve just taken delivery of a stunning 1986 BMW M3 into our workshops, which we’re currently preparing for sale on behalf of one of our most valued clients.  The E30 M3 is a genuine benchmark performance car of the 1980’s and authentic, original cars such as this one are very rare indeed.  It’s completely ‘factory’ in specification and appearance and is beautifully unspoiled.  It’s a very early AK05 European specification model, in left hand drive of course, having covered less than 120,000 KMS from new.  Everything about this car makes us smile, from the lovely crisp interior, complete with untouched cloth trim to its period perfect 181 Diamond Black paintwork.  Never accident damaged and having lived its whole life in a salt free climate, it has never seen any corrosion and is one of the most untouched, factory correct examples in existence.  If you dreamed of owning one in 1986 and missed your opportunity back then, please get in touch, as this car really is very special and we doubt you’ll find another in such gorgeous condition this side of £80k, but as we’re not based in London, with a super sexy showroom and a trendy sales manager with a double barrelled surname, you won’t have to pay quite that…

Also in preparation is the perhaps the ultimate original R107 SL in the UK. Imagine walking into an authorised Mercedes Benz dealership back in 1990 and our car is exactly what you would have found – very lightly used, but still essentially factory fresh.  It’s not some concours show queen that’s never seen a spec of dust, having lived its life in a hermetically sealed environment, but an authentic, original, untouched car that’s in genuinely mint condition and absolutely ‘right’ in every way.  Before you view it, we’d urge you to look at others – in fact, go and look at all of them first! We considered passing it onto an SL specialist, who openly admitted that it’s an £80k car in their showroom, so save yourself a useful amount when you buy it from us at £64,995; possibly enough for a nice R129 to sit alongside it too!  A genuine benchmark car in terms of originality and quite unrepeatable.

And if that magnificent 80’s pairing isn’t enough, then we’re also in early discussions to market a 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth that’s covered considerably less than 20,000 miles from new, and is quite possibly the lowest mileage example on the planet. And finally, if like us you love the high performance BMW’s of the 1980’s, then be sure to check into our blog regularly, as we might just have the ultimate example of the rarest Alpina super coupe coming our way very soon…

Updates and photographs of all the above cars will follow shortly.  Please register your interest in any of these vehicles with us to avoid disappointment.
