Is This Ultra-Rare BMW M3 Restomod An Unexpected Bargain?

Such is the market for old sports cars, and the wealthy never have enough things to splash the cash on. Restomods are a dime-a-dozen a day, and it takes something truly special to stand out. In the case of the Redux BMW E30 M3, it certainly does that – and now, one could be yours for a (relative) bargain.

What exactly makes a Redux E30 different from the regular thing? For a start, the UK-based firm strips back the coupe and does away with all of BMW’s original bodywork – barring the roof and doors – swapping the panels for bespoke carbon fiber replacements. Those wheel arches are wider, too, with the replica DTM wheels pushed out to fill them.

Suspension receives an overhaul courtesy of new Bilstein dampers, new anti-roll bars, and a complete reworking of its geometry, among tons of tiny changes to perfect it. This particular car has Redux’s standard-fit AP Racing slitted steel brakes rather than the optional carbon ceramics.

All of this enables the Redux E30 to make the most of a reworked S14 engine, bored out from 2.3 liters to 2.5. Power rises to 300bhp – a 100bhp jump over standard – still sent to the rear axle through a five-speed dogleg gearbox.

This particular car is chassis #02 of a planned run of 30 cars, which Redux is currently working through. It’s painted in a wonderful dark green with a chocolate brown interior, though we’re a little sad to read it’s only covered 328 miles since its conversion.

If you have an allocation, a commission will cost you at least £350,000 before any options – making the £250,000 guide price for Iconic Auctioneers’ sale of this car seem a relative bargain. Moreover, when you find out that this conversion was ordered, it costs “in excess” of £400,000.
