THIS CAR IS NOT FOR SALE .
There were in total 11 rally spec M3s at Prodrive built. Three of them were finished in gravel spec, but all of them were used also on tarmac events. These cars had special plastic coating in orange color protecting trailing arms, TCAs and underbody. According to known facts, one of these gravel cars was burnt, this means, there are at most just two pieces of these original cars still existing, if not just the only our one.
This car was in season 1989 raced by Marc Duez in WRC and Belgian champ rounds. After this campaign was sold to Northern Ireland, where was rebuild to RHD spec and changed few local owners during this period. As the time went on, the car was sold to Belgium, where was rebuilt to its original LHD condition. In april 2013, after this conversion, the car was bought into our collection. In 2014, we have ordered auditing of the car, which was made by Paul Howarth, historic expert, from Prodrive. This audit confirmed originality of our car and a report showing details to be adjusted in compliance with works spec was created.
Our car has wide documentation describing its history, including a special book which was issued in limited numbers (10 pcs) only for this particular car. In 2015 during Rally Legend San Marino, our car could be seen driven by Marc Duez again!
