One of the quirkiest yet fun to drive BMWs ever made was the BMW Z4M. Not many Z4Ms sold, and BMW was left having to slash prices on new models to move them out of the door as there were too many made and not enough demand. BMW learned its lesson and chose to limit production numbers on future niche M cars, like the 1 Series M Coupe. But because the Z4M wasn’t universally loved, you’d be hard pressed to find one on the road. And despite its slightly strange looks and lack of popularity, the Z4M is actually quite an excellent car to drive.
The BMW Z4M isn’t without an audience though, albeit a small one. A small cult following has developed behind the Z4M, much like the Z3M Coupe’s. The reason for this is that a small number of people appreciate the way it drives, despite its strange looks and lack of attention. These people love that it’s powered by an S54 3.2 liter I6 engine that makes 343 hp and is mated to a six-speed manual. They like the funky hatchback body style and long sharknose hood. They also like how it’s one of the better handling BMWs of its decade.
So for those fine folk who have an appreciation for the slightly odd but truly great, I present to you this 2007 BMW Z4M for sale. This particular Z4M is painted in Black Sapphire Metallic and has Black leather interior. It only has 30,000 miles on it, so it’s very lightly used. It also seems to be in excellent condition. The interior is also pretty loaded, with heated sport seats and carbon fiber trim. It’s probably the best looking example of a Z4M I’ve ever seen.
The price is a bit steep for a car that’s almost 10 years old, at $30,000, but it is a rare car and one that could be a future classic. Buy this now, treat it with respect and car, keep it in pristine condition and you could probably sell it later on down the road for a considerable sum more than what you paid for it. If not, then you have yourself one of the best driving little unknown gems BMW ever produced.
