2,107 M3 Evolution Cabriolets were built for the UK market between February 1996 and July 1999. This example remains in largely standard, factory specification and as the photographs show the M3 presents very well with clean, straight bodywork and an interior which wears its 19 years extremely well. The original BMW Motorsport allow wheels remain in excellent condition with no major marking and the electrically operated cabriolet hood fits well with the rear plastic screen also in excellent condition.

The perfect proportions and sharp but simple classic lines of the E36 made for what is without doubt one of the most beautiful four seater cabriolets of all time and the perfect place to enjoy the sound of BMW’s 3.2 straight six engine of the time.
