#24 of 45
pecial Order 1 of 1 Paint (Giallo Yellow)
This Euro-Spec 1994 BMW M3 (E36) is as exciting as it is rare. This car is one of only 45 European specification E36 M3s that were delivered to North America due to a special agreement* between Canada and Europe in the mid-90s. It is car #24 of the 45 numbered cars.
*Origin & History / #24 of 45
In 1994, various agreements existed between Canada and several European countries which allowed any car authorized in one participating country to legally be sold in any of the others.
BMW unveiled its E36 generation M3 in Europe in 1992 but felt that the car would need to be priced much higher in North America than the market would have allowed for. While engineers worked on a less expensive North American version of the E36 M3 to export, BMW Canada seized this window of opportunity and brought in 45 numbered European specification M3 coupes that were specially produced and imported into Canada.
Each one of these 45 cars has a numbered engraved plaque in both the glovebox and the custom leather case which holds the owners manuals. Despite its relatively high starting price of $59,900, all 45 units were sold within 3 days. Unlike other special versions of the E36 M3, orignal buyers were free to choose any colors and options they wanted on their particular car.
Features & Options
The vehicle has a 3.0L inline 6-cylinder engine producing 282 hp, vented brakes with floating rotors, glass headlights and other European standard equipment. It features a 5-speed manual transmission, a special Motorsport interior option, 17 forged BMW Motorsport wheels, power sport seats, an electric sunroof, a premium stereo, a multi-CD changer, air conditioning, power windows and much more.
Although BMW eventually brought the E36 M3 to the United States, the North American-spec car featured a less powerful engine (S50B30US) with 40 hp less. The European specification M3 also had superior floating rotor brakes, better glass headlights, lower and stiffer suspension and some interesting interior options.
