This Individual model which is finished in Fiji Green has red leather heated seats fitted. Powered by the 1.9 litre four-cylinder engine, this attractive 5-speed manual variant from 1998 is offered on a no reserve basis. The car has been recently subject to brake fettling, shod with new tyres, and track rod ends.
Styled in-house by Jogi Nagashima, the BMW Z3 entered production in September 1995. Derived from the contemporaneous E36 3-Series Saloon (though, its semi-trailing arm rear suspension was courtesy of the earlier E30), the Roadster's running gear included power-assisted rack and pinion steering, Macpherson strut independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Initially powered by 1.8 or 1.9 litre four-cylinder engines allied to either manual or automatic transmission, larger capacity straight-six units joined the Z3 range from 1996 onwards. Boasting 52:48 weight distribution and a top speed of over 125mph, the stylish two-seater found fame as James Bond's transport in the 1995 film Goldeneye.
