Craving that naturally aspirated sound? Dying to hear that roar noise from a BMW engine? Well, the video below will give you both. An one-off BMW Z4 Hartge Z3 Coupe makes its way on the interwebs and a Youtube video takes us closer to the car.

The only one every built Z3 Hartge comes equipped with a 5.0 liter V8 naturally aspirated engine and has a maximum output of 420 hp and a peak torque of 530 Nm. The car reaches a top speed of more than 300 km/h and gets to 200 km/h in just 13 seconds. The engine is matted to a 6-speed gearbox.

The engine is the same one used in the BMW E39 M5. The car started its life as a Z3 M Coupé in September 1998. This one time project was meant for automotive shows, but eventually it was put on license plates. And after it had driven around in Germany for a while, it was bought by someone from Holland.

    ugh i love the first gen Z, my favorite bmw deisgn of all time

  • Laszlo

    actually its a 2nd gen Z car. The Z1 was the 1st generation.
    But all that being said, I love the Z3 M coupe too. I don’t even need the 5.0l v8 in it, the euro 315HP engine was plenty enough to scare most people.

    One of BMW’s greatest design ! Bungle could not do that car even if his life would depend on it. He would mess it up with so bad, it would look like a …. well… like a 1st gen Z4.
    nuff said… Z3 M Coupe is one of BMW’s best creation for the small enthusiast group.

  • Yuri

    This Z3 is for sale in the Netherlands (Overijssel, not in Holland)

  • Dutchy

    It doesn’t have an M5 engine (=S62) but a tuned M62B44 from the 540i, 740i etc.

    • frank

      Thats correct Dutchy. We did 310kmh in Germany :-)
