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.
