It’s not an M3
M3s are great, right? But this isn’t one, really, and that makes it cooler still. Looks like AC Schnitzer only built a handful of these – 75, if the plaque on the centre console is to be believed – making the M3-based ACS3 CLS rarer than all but the most limited-edition normal M3s. You’ll certainly never see another one on the road, that’s for sure. It’s also a tuned BMW from the Nineties that isn’t an Alpina. Not that we have anything against Alpina, of course.
This one lives in Hong Kong, where it was imported from England by its last owner. Now it’s for sale for the equivalent of around £120,000. Click these words to see the ad from Contempo Concept, and while you’re there look at the dealer’s other stock. You won’t regret it.
