BMW E36 M3 Tarmac Rally Car For Sale – Very reluctant sale, but new project underway!
This is undoubtedly one of the best known and most successful M3’s in the UK, having been regularly featured on tv coverage of the UK Asphalt Rally Championship, where it’s had top 10 overall finishes, many class awards and won the RWD Championship outright in 2012 (checkout the names that finished behind us – Simon Mauger, John Indri etc etc).
For a car that costs less than £20k, it regularly beats Escorts, Darrians and all the other RWD machinery that costs from £50k – £100k.
Also you don’t need to be Sebastien Ogier or Elfyn Evans to drive it. You’ll see plenty of cars advertised as – “will be quick in the right hands”, well I’m not Seb Ogier and I can win in this car, so as long you’ve got half an idea what you’re doing, you could win in it as well. You wont find a better value car for your money. It’s also cheap to run, as a lot of the parts are standard.
If you want more info, or are interested in coming to have a look, then you can contact me on 07808 094390. But please, no enquiries from outside of the UK, or from any timewasters – I don’t want to waste your time, so I given a very comprehensive description of the car, so please don’t waste my time if you’ve got no intention or not got the means to buy it! Enough said.
