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 a thorough inspection and fettling by Valoroso Race and Restorations during December 2019.

Offered with a comprehensive history file comprising the all-important book pack, service book (containing thirteen stamps) and even the dealer-issued spare key. Formerly housed alongside a Rolls-Royce, Ferrari and other rare exotics, 'S122 MTF' is only offered for sale due to loss of the vendor's covered storage. Starting and running well during our recent photography session, the bodywork does sport some age-related scuffs and wear, however these cars offer so much bang for your buck, combining open-top Summer motoring with superb German engineering ande build quality.

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.
