[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: J190 PKV Chassis No: WBABB22000EC16204 MOT: March 2025 Rare and desirable Motorsport example, being 1 of only 250 produced in right-hand drive 1 of only 50 manufactured in the final year (1991) and 1 of only 25 finished in Calypso Red Subject to a comprehensive restoration in 2010 Current ownership since 2009 and seven former keepers PLEASE NOTE: This lot has eight former keepers instead of seven as catalogued. This lot has a fault with the electric hood which is not functioning. The fault is believed to be with the control module but this has not been confirmed. The 325i Motorsport was a limited-edition variant based on the 325i Convertible which was available between 1981 and 1991. There was a total of 590 cars produced and 250 in right-hand drive. The Motorsport kept mostly standard 325i running gear other than the addition of M-Technic sports suspension. Offered with the choice of manual or automatic gearboxes, the Motorsports were unique to the rest of the E30 range because of the paint colours and interior trims on offer. Colours were Macau Blue, Calypso Red, Sebring Grey, Mauritius Blue and Nagaro Silver depending on model year, with the interiors offered in an extended leather covering not only for the seats but the whole door card, centre and handbrake consoles as well as the ashtray. The early cars started with un-kitted metal bumpered cars (M-Tech 1 kit was an optional extra) through to plastic bumpered cars with the M-Tech 2 kit fitted as standard on later examples. The Motorsport cost over £30,000 when new. Manufactured in 1991, the 325i Motorsport was supplied new to the United Kingdom being registered on the 1st of August that year. This example is one of only 25 Motorsports manufactured in Calypso Red and is allied to the Lotus White leather Motorsport interior trim (only fitted to 1991 cars) which has recently been reconnolised. Provided with a comprehensive restoration in 2010, the BMW was subject to mechanical overhaul, suspension refurbishment, interior refresh, and the Black hood was replaced. Since then, the BMW has further been provided with renewed cooling equipment (including new water pump) in 2020, additional interior improvement and rear brake shoes in 2019. Supplied with a history file that includes a collection of past invoices, a small number of previous MOT certificates, and a current V5C document. Provided with a no advisory MOT certificate until March 2024, ‘J190 PKV’ is offered having covered a total of 122,500 miles (atoc) from new, the BMW has been in the current ownership for twelve years and has eight former keepers. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, paintwork, and electrical equipment as 'very good’, with the engine, gearbox and interior trim as ‘excellent’. A rare and desirable model in one of the most scarce of the limited colours. For more information, please contact: Paul Cheetham paul.cheetham@handh.co.uk 07538 667452
