Over the years, BMW has made many cars that truly could be called “Ultimate Driving Machines.” Of these, the ones that embody that idea the best tend to have something in common: the letter M.
The BMW M performance variations are the ones that are the most enthusiast-focused cars in their lineup and are as capable on the track as they are to drive to work. Of the M cars in BMW’s history, one of my all-time favorites is the BMW Z4M Coupe.
The Pick of the Day is a 2007 BMW Z4M coupe in Imola Red with a red-leather interior, and with only 52,117 original miles on the odometer.
This Z4 M is a two-owner car and has been with the current Atlanta owner, a long-term BMW enthusiast, since 2016, according to the Atlanta, Georgia, dealer advertising the car on ClassicCars.com. Options include a wood dash and console, heated seats and navigation. The seller states that the car has a clean CarFax with no accidents and no evidence of any post-factory paintwork.
The BMW presents in superb, like-new condition throughout, the seller adds, with excellent paint, and the front has had clear bra applied for protection from paint chips. It is riding on its original factory 18-inch wheels with nearly new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The red interior shows little wear with the leather still soft and only a hint of creasing on the outer driver’s bolster.
The Z4M drives as good as it looks and has been regularly serviced, the ad says, and includes a service history that includes a recent power-steering system overhaul and valve adjustment. The car comes with all its books, tool roll and air pump.
These Z4 coupes are quite rare, with only 1,815 cars built for North America, which means you are not likely to park next to one outside of a BMW show or event. They offer great performance (0-60 in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 169 mph), rarity, reliability, utility and driving fun by the bushel.
The asking price is $37,900 for this stunning BMW, which most-likely will be appreciated as a future collector car.
