Valencia Orange BMW E30 M3 Is A Perfectly Restored Classic

Legends never die they say, and just by looking at this beautifully restored BMW E30 M3 they seem right.

What you’re looking at is a Valencia Orange E30 M3 that was put through a complete and over-the-top restoration process, with every single component being either brand new or as good as new.

The car was originally painted white when the decision to be overhauled was taken back in 2005. The body was completely stripped and sandblasted, then cured with four layers of primer and then painted with the vibrant Valencia Orange.

The restoration also included putting brand new components bought through BMW, including an ECU, windows and windshield, moldings all around, the original dash and console, black carpet and the much sought after Evo steering wheel.

Other features include new lights all around, a new spoiler along with an Evo front lip and new gas tank. The oily bits were similarly restored as the Valencia Orange M3 had a top end engine rebuild along with a new clutch, cooling system, brakes, as well as a new front and rear suspension.

The car is described to be in original condition, with the only modifications being a Borla exhaust system and H&R springs. Going through the gallery, you can almost smell how fresh that BMW E30 M3 is.

Sadly the car has not covered no more than 20 miles since the restoration process was completed by Miami’s Masterclass Automotive, which gives a first-class opportunity to someone enjoy what it is essentially a brand new E30 M3.

Will the new owner drive it as intended? Judging by the ‘Buy It Now’ price tag of $120,490 on Ebay, we’re not so sure.

    $120k??? I like classic M Cars, but this??? Both the seller and any potential buyer(s) are smoking crack. LOTS of it.

  • $120,490. Someone must be high when they put this price.

    This is to be fair a standard E30 M3, no interesting ownership history, it is restored but still no amount of restoration would make the car have that kind of value.
