A rare UK supplied 1990 E30 2.5 litre M3 Sport Evolution (AK07). My own personal car since 1996 and offered as a private sale by me. Only one previous private owner before me. Full service history. No accidents. With the preferable unique Sport Evo cloth interior. Currently on AC Schnitzer full suspension (the best available with great comfort too), and the rare 360mm steering wheel and monoarm wiper. All original suspension, standard wiper parts and Sport Evo suede steering wheel included as well. I acquired the car 23 years ago at 29,000 miles. Very little use over the last ten years and frequently SORNED and stored under its tailored cover in a heated garage. Drives perfectly and as tight as a drum with none of the usual age related creaks or rattles. Feels barely five years old, not nearly thirty! Only fifty Sport Evo versions were officially imported into the UK, 25 red, 25 black. Beautiful condition throughout. Registration number included.

The E30 M3 Sport Evolution, produced in an edition of 600 during late 1989 and early 1990, was the most extensively modified of the three E30 M3 Evolution editions. The cylinder bore was increased to 95mm (from 84mm) and a long-stroke crank was added to boost displacement to 2,467cc (from 2,305). In addition, the valves were enlarged and a more aggressive cam was fitted. Special nozzles sprayed oil under the pistons to keep them cool. All Sport Evolution motors were equipped with catalysts. The end result was a power increase to 238 hp at 7,000 rpm, though peak torque decreased slightly (over the Evolution II) to 177 lb/ft at 4,750 rpm. These engines use the regular black cam cover but have red spark plug wires. The gearbox remained unchanged but the 3.15:1 final drive was fitted.
Like the Evolution II, the Sport Evolution has thinner glass, a lighter trunk and bumpers, and brake cooling ducts in place of foglights. In addition, it also has a smaller fuel tank. For homologation purposes, the Sport Evolution has unique front and rear spoilers with adjustable extensions for greater downforce, even wider front fenders, and reprofiled grille slats with sealed gaps for better aerodynamics, all of which have negligible effect on the street. The M3 Sport Evolution also sits 10mm lower than the normal E30 M3.
The Sport Evolution was only offered only in Jet Black (668) with red bumper stripes or Brilliant Red (308) with black bumper stripes. The wheels are the same 7.5x16-inch cross-spoke items used on other Evolution models, but the spokes are painted a darker Nogaro Silver. Comfort items such as power windows, a sunroof, on-board computer and air conditioning were all deleted in order to keep weight down, though they could be ordered as options. Even the interior map lights and grab handles were deleted. Recaro sport seats with integrated headrests were standard in Anthracite M cloth. Black leather with the M tri-colour logo was an option. A suede-covered M Technic II steering wheel, shift knob and parking brake handle were included along with red seatbelts. Door sill plates with colour "M3" insignias were added and a special plaque denoting each car as a Sport Evolution appears on the centre console (though it does not include the unique number of each example out of the 600).
• Errors and omissions excepted.
• Some manufacturer’s upholstery described as “leather” sometimes also contains other material. This is usually to improve wear rate and retain shape better. Please bear this in mind when seeing “leather upholstery” in the specification list of any of our cars.
