1:18 Scale 2001 BMW M3 GTR - “Street Version” - New In Box - SUPER RARE !
The BMW E46 M3 GTR came to life in February 2001 and was the first M3 in the history of the company to feature a V8 engine. The only reason that the GTR was made was to go along with the Le Mans rules stating that any vehicle raced must be produced in certain numbers for a certain length of time before the racing car starts its season. Since the Le Mans M3 GTR was a V8, the road car had to be, as well. To fulfill this rule, BMW put 10 road going GTRs on sale after the 2001 season, for €250,000 each. The BMW M3 GTR was a dominant competitor throughout the single season that it contested. Bill Auberlen, Boris Said and Hans J-Stuck capped off the season for BMW North America by winning the 2001 Petit Le Mans finale. This auction is for a New 1/18th scale die-cast 2001 BMW M3 GTR by Minichamps. Beautiful silver finish with opening doors showing highly detailed black interior. Opening hood and trunk revealing detailed engine compartment and trunk. Model is in “As New” condition from a non-smoking/no pets home. The box was only opened to inspect the model for its condition. You will not find this car at any toy store or hobby shop in the WASH DC METRO area. Can occasionally be purchased from specialists or collectors online. This model has long been out of production and is no longer available. Magnificent museum quality and detail at a fair but firm price of $225 - I will personally hand deliver anywhere in the WASH DC METRO area otherwise, shipping & handling is extra.
