FOR SALE: 1 of 25 UK-only Ravaglia M3s, immaculately presented and just 41k miles.

EQUIPMENT
Misano Red paintwork, Anthracite M-Technic cloth with black Bison leather bolsters, Roberto Ravaglia Numbered plaque, 16-inch cross-spoke alloy wheels with black centres, Evolution II front chin spoiler, Evolution II rear lip spoiler, M3 door sill plates, M driver footrest, Electric windows, On-board computer II, Cassette storage, Front fog lights, Fire extinguisher, Alloy spare wheel, BMW toolkit, BMW first aid kit, Warning triangle, Car cover.

EXTERIOR
This has to be one of the cleanest, most original E30 M3s weve ever had the pleasure of selling here at 4 Star, and as one of just 25 Roberto Ravaglia editions its extremely rare too. Just 16 examples were supplied in gorgeous Misano Red definitely one of the best M3 colours and the paintwork remains in stunning condition, with a great shine to every panel. Even on close inspection there are few blemishes to speak of, the only real imperfections being some expected light chips towards the front end. The remainder of the body is factory-fresh with even panel gaps, pristine rubber trims, and BMW-stamped glass all round. A true collectors piece, in outstanding show condition.

INTERIOR
Much like its Johnny Cecotto twin, the Roberto Ravaglia was gifted special M-Technic cloth with Bison Leather bolsters, which are anthracite and black in this example. Open the door and youre still greeted by that new car smell. Original interiors of this age and in this condition do not come around often. The bolsters are hardly worn, and the stunning M cloth appears as new.

Glancing across the driver-focused dash youll find a pristine finish to every component. Everything feels really solid to the touch, with no wear or marking to report. Commonly worn items like the steering wheel and gear knob retain a lovely satin sheen, and the carpets are protected in the footwells by a set of tailored overmats. The boot area is extremely clean and still present with the complete BMW toolkit, first aid kit, warning triangle, and matching spare wheel.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The E30 M3s S14 engine was designed for racing applications and was therefore compact and high-revving. Special features included individual throttle plates for each cylinder, machined intake and exhaust ports, and a crankshaft with eight counterweights. The Ravaglia editions catalyst-equipped S14 produced 215hp at 6,750rpm and 170 lb/ft of torque at 4,600rpm.

As to be expected the engine bay of this example is exceptionally clean throughout. Everything appears really fresh with no signs of any corrosion, damage or poor repair to be found. Both the plenum chamber and valve cover are still wearing their factory Misano Red paint, and traces of original protective wax can also be found on some components. All in all, a real treat for the enthusiast.

WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
Sitting on its original 16-inch BBS the M3 looks magnificent. The wheels are correctly finished in black with contrasting silver rims and centre nuts, a feature unique to the Ravaglia and Cecotto editions. On very close inspection there is some light marking to report but nothing worthy of a refurb in our opinion. The alloys are shod in a matching set of Continental Sport Contact tyres, all with plenty of tread remaining. The pads and discs show plenty of life left having been replaced all round at 34k miles.

HISTORY FILE
This rare Ravaglia M3 was first registered in August 89 and was supplied new by BMW in Doncaster. Since that time it has driven just 41k miles in the hands of only three careful keepers, with the current owner having purchased the car way back in 2007.

This example has clearly been treasured all its life, never needing any restorative work or mechanical re-commissioning. All aspects of the car are amazingly original, the only aftermarket additions being a stainless steel exhaust and later-style radio head unit. The History File is complete the original document pack, service booklet, and a raft of invoices. Services have been carried out at the following mileages: 1k, 5k, 17k, 24k, 31k, 34k, 36k, 38k, 39k, 40k, 41k, 41k, and most recently again at 41k miles in May 2019.
