Most of the way through all I could think was "please don't use a uk m3 gt for the e36 one" :lol:

Thankfully at the end it looks like the gt is a proper lhd one ( I'd still have a 3.2 over one though ) so it could perhaps be the most factually accurate set of m3 videos ever to hit the youtubes.
I didn’t know anything about this car (maybe I did but forgotten) and its existence due to homologation. 8-)

Love the BRG and green interior.

The want is strong; wonder how much is one of these now...

Proper LHD GTs are probably ££lots by now, even normal m3s are a lot more expensive on the continent than over here.

There's one rhd uk spec one on carclassic for £26,500

No low mileage cars on mobile.de; two ‘clean’ cars for sale both have done 100k miles and between EUR45-50k.

Collector territory then!

Yes saw that yesterday. Only thing which appeals now about the DB11 is the V12. For me at least. The McLaren is far tastier.

Didn't all the reviews at the time say these were crap ?

I'm not watching the video, but is it old enough now for everyone to change their opinion?

ISTR that when it was in eCOTY, it was a very marmite car - a few of the journalists put it top, a few put it bottom.

At the time, it was overshadowed by the GT3 (well, isn't everything? 😅)

Bit before my time. 205 T16 was ‘my’ Group B car.

Love the seats.

A GT3 4.0 was only a little over £10k more (if you could get one) so it did look a bit silly at £115k. The below vid featuring them both is one of my favourite CH vids:

Catchpole’s review:

I think the Speedster has replaced the 911R as my Euromillion ‘road car’. 8-) I like it how simple the roof operation is.

Love the Speedster and the video, needed to be longer. My perfect 911.
