Rent a BMW E30 M3 - Classic Car Hire Europe

Rarely in a classic car does style meets substance in such an impressive way. The BMW E30 M3 is quite literally a world-beating sports car and has gone down in history as the most successful touring car of all time. Driven to victory by BMW works drivers Johnny Cecotto and Roberto Ravaglia, the M3 became the benchmark for every supersaloon to follow in its footsteps. In later years the E30 M3 has become one of the most desirable modern classics throughout the world, and can be found gracing the garages of some of the world’s leading car collectors.

Surprisingly the BMW E30 M3 is a very easy car to drive. Equally at home on the autoroute as it is on twisty mountain passes, once you’ve mastered the racing dog-leg gearbox, even the most careful driver will appreciate the cars intuitive driving style, masterful chassis, and eager four-cylinder race-tuned engine.

In simple terms, no other car in its class drives like a BMW E30 M3. It’s forgiving nature and extraordinary cornering ability make the E30 M3 one of the most flattering cars to drive – within a few kilometers it’s almost impossible not to become hooked. With a classic car, attention to detail is everything – even the hi-fi system is a period Pioneer unit, subtly converted to Bluetooth for practical reasons. The steering wheel is trimmed in alcantara, and the car is equipped with a rare sunroof option.

Our BMW E30 M3 makes the ideal road trip companion for one of our driving tours. As a standard car it is ideal for photo shoots, film work and display purposes, and has appeared in many motoring publications as well as BBC’s world-famous TV-show Top Gear. This particular E30 M3 has a very interesting history, having been previously owned by a prince, and now carefully maintained by the world’s leading independent BMW specialist Munich Legends.

Our BMW E30 M3 is one of the few examples available worldwide to rent and is one of the most desirable modern classics in the world today.
