A car which is rarer and rarer to spot around, the BMW M coupe, the M version of the Z3. Under the bonnet the M coupe get a 3.2 straight 6 with 320bhp. As far as performance is concerned, you get 0 to 62mph in 5.3 secconds and a top speed of 155mph or 250km/h. I know it is nearly 20 years old now, but I still really like the look of it!
