1989 BMW M3
WHY I LOVE IT It’s a rare, factoryupgraded version of one of the best BMWs of all time
This isn’t just any E30 M3 with 13,000 miles on the clock (though that alone would be worth selling extraneous body parts for), it’s a Johnny Cecotto, one of just 505 built to celebrate the Venezuelan’s 1988 European Touring Car Championship win. Spec-wise, it’s a mish-mash of standard, Evolution and Sport Evolution parts, with unique alloys and interior cloth. So while a Sport Evolution may be faster, the Cecotto is one of the best looking M3s around, and it hardly hangs about, either. Jay Kay thought so, anyway – it’s from his collection. If I had that sort of money I wouldn’t be locking away what’s widely considered to be one of the greatest driver’s car of all time in a garage – I’d get that odometer turning.
