While you probably wont chase any Russian agents during your time behind the wheel, imagine how cool it would be to own a car featured in a James Bond movie. MotoeXotica Classic Cars can help with that; we have a 1998 BMW Z3 M Roadster, similar to the one in the film, Goldeneye but minus the gadgets from Q Branch. Since it is one of the M models, it shares the drivetrain, front suspension and brake system with the legendary M3.
This model is one of 3,296 Z3 models made at BMWs Greer, South Carolina factory on July 27, 1998 and came with the following equipment rollover protection, air-conditioning, cruise control, Harman Kardon high-fidelity stereo system, locking rear differential, power windows, sports seat, heated buckets, M Sports steering wheel, power locks, power mirrors and BMW six-disc CD changer.
This cars dressed in Black, (code 303) and the paint and trim are in overall excellent condition, with just a few minor blemishes visible at less than 10 feet. The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy, the batter appears new and the cars body-colored bumpers are in very good order. Note that the new, black folding top only operates manually. The car has new emblems and side marker lights.
This Z3 rolls on radials, 235/35R19 in front and 275/30ZR19 at the rear. Each one is mounted on a RPM snowflake style alloy wheel. The wheels are in very good order while the tires are in good, original shape.
Under the hood is a potent, 3.2L DOHC inline six-cylinder motor (code S52B32) with variable valve timing (VVT). The S52 shares more in common with the regular M52 engine than the S50 did with the M50, for example sharing the engine block (cast iron, as per North American M52 engines), cylinder head and single VANOS. Unique to the S52 is a bore of 3.4 inches and stroke of 3.5 inches for a total displacement of 3,152 cc. Compression ratio is 10.5:1. Other upgrades over the M52 include lighter camshafts (with increased lift and duration), valve springs and the exhaust system.
Backing up this engine is a ZF S5-31 five-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, cruise control, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power mirrors, power locks and power mirrors.
Inside the cars black Nappa leather interior (code Q6SW) is in overall great shape. The drivers seat has a new seatbelt buckle and sensor. The black buckets are heated as well. Behind the seats is an innovative rollover hoop system. The matching carpet is in similar shape to the seats while the three-spoke M sports steering wheel looks great. The instrument panel and inner door panels are in excellent order and the dashboard features a full array of instruments. The center console and shifter look great. A Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player and Bluetooth connectivity rounds out the interior.
The Z3M versions were introduced in 1997 in the roadster (M Roadster) and coup (M Coup) body styles. European models were initially powered by the S50 engine while North American models were powered by the S52 engine. Models were only available with a five-speed manual transmission.
Compared to the standard Z3, M models featured a limited slip differential, a wider rear track and larger brakes (that are shared with the E36 M3). Z3M models have more aerodynamic wing-mirrors, redesigned front and rear bumpers, revised side gill, 17-inch wheels, quad exhausts and engine and oil temperature gauges in the center console.
Competition to this Z3 in 1998 included Aston Martins DB7 Volant, BMWs own M3 Convertible, Chevrolets Camaro Z28 Convertible, Mercedes-Benzs SL 500 and Pontiacs Firebird Trans Am Convertible.
