BMW Z3 for sale
Produced from 1995 to 2002, the BMW Z3 is a two-door sports car available in both convertible and coupe styles. Perhaps best known as one of James Bond’s cars, the BMW Z3 roadster was introduced to the world in the 1995 film Goldeneye. Not only was the BMW Z3 the first BMW to appear in the James Bond franchise, it was also the first BMW exclusively built outside of Germany. The American-made BMW Z3 features rear-wheel drive, seating for two and a range of engines to satisfy speed lovers.
Introduced in early 1996, the BMW Z3 was built at the BMW Spartanburg plant in South Carolina. Early models were a pleasure to drive, equipped with four-cylinder engines that offered up to 140 horsepower and a top speed of 205 km/hr. The first BMW Z3 M Roadster launched in 1997, a high-performance model that delivered 321 horsepower and a top speed of 250 km/hr. By 1999, all models had been upgraded to six-cylinder engines and the famed BMW Z3 Coupe had arrived. While the BMW Z3 Coupe and BMW Z3 M Coupe were not as popular as their convertible cousins, their unique looks and dynamic engineering earned them cult status over the years.
BMW Z3 features to look for
The BMW Z3 lineup includes the BMW Z3 Roadster, the high-performance BMW Z3 M Roadster, the BMW Z3 Coupe and the high-performance BMW Z3 M Coupe. M models are more valuable, with their powerful engines, quad exhausts and sport-tuned brakes. As even the newest models are now 20 years old, drivers shouldn’t expect up-to-date technologies, but these luxury vehicles do offer high-quality interiors designed for driver comfort. Expect features like leather upholstery, chrome trim, sports seats and power windows and door locks.
