BMW 3.0Si For Sale Description

10 minutes from Porto airport in Maia you´ll find this BMW 3.0Si for sale with just 80000kms claimed from new, in a devastatingly attractive burgundy over cream, set off by Alpina style alloy wheels. The E3 was BMW´s break into luxury cars, extremely expensive but sporting and modern compared to contemporary Mercedes. This car is a manual 3.0Si, which means that it gives nearly 200bhp but actually weighs less than the more glamorous E9 coupé, so the 3.0Si also found its way on to the race track occasionally.
Whereas the coupé rusted very badly (built by Karmann), the factory build saloon was built very well with a bullet proof drive train, although trim parts, body panels etc are difficult to source. This particular BMW 3.0Si seems to need nothing, however. It is offered by a private owner for 8500€, though you may be able to negotiate a better price. This example is not cheap but few survive in this condition, it is a lot of car for the money and likely to increase in value.
Price: 8.500 €
