BMW Z3: grey cabriolet
The BMW Z3 is a range of two-seater sports cars which was produced from 1995 to 2002. The body styles of the range are:
2-door roadster (E36/7 model code)
2-door coupé (E36/8 model code)
The Z3 was based on the E36 3 Series platform, while using the rear semi-trailing arm suspension design of the older E30 3 Series. It is the first mass-produced Z Series car.
M models were introduced in 1998 in roadster and coupé body styles and were powered by the S50, S52, or S54 straight-six engine depending on country and model year. The M models came with a 5-speed manual transmission.
Production ended on June 28, 2002, with the Z3 line replaced by the E85 Z4.
Roadster models entered production in September 1995, powered by 4-cylinder engines on launch. 6-cylinder engines were later introduced in 1996.] A removable hardtop roof was available as an optional accessory.
