The BMW Z3 became the first modern BMW roadster. Introduced in 1996, the car debuted in the famous agent James Bond film GoldenEye and immediately became very popular. The Z3 is built on the E36 3 Series BMW platform. The rear suspension is taken from the older 3 Series E30 model, not the more advanced multi-link E36 suspension. The smallest engines, the 1.8 L, 1.9 L, certainly didn’t show dynamism, but the most powerful versions had a large 6-cylinder in-line 3.2 L engine. Inside, the car wasn't special - poor-quality plastic looked cheaper than other BMWs, and the plastic rear window looked worse than the glass that the cheaper Mazda MX5 had. However, the advantages of the Z3 are other: it is a small sporty, well-operated car. That's what BMW has to do. The car has become popular and appreciated, maintaining its value well. The Z3 proved to be quite reliable with a few minor issues.
The BMW Z3 is the first mass-produced roadster in BMW history.
Introduced in 1996, the car made its debut in the famous agent James Bond film GoldenEye.
German tuning company AC Schnitzer had "inserted" a 4.4-liter engine into this small Z3, while another company, Hartge, was able to accommodate a 5-liter V8 unit.
The car has won many awards, including the following:
  • The most coveted car of the year 1999 (Edmunds website);
  • Falled into the top ten (Car and Driver magazine) in 1999;
  • Design of the Year (AUTOMOBILE magazine) in 1999.

An amazing machine for the driver

Design, rear-wheel drive, engine, engine and again engine. Even better management. Fun factor.
Practical, poor instrument panel, small luggage compartment.
BMW cars are said to be for the driver. Probably the Z3 car out of all BMW is mostly for the driver :) The car is just a car to drive and drive. Great design is eye-catching, and if the engine isn?t the smallest, it?s all fun!?Fir...
