Like a lot BMW fans, the styling language implemented across the range has left me with mixed feelings. I try and temper myself and keep receptive to new design, but more often than not, what I’ve seen on the showroom floor over the last decade has left me yearning for the classics. In the case of the BMW Z4 M Coupe, however, BMW hit the nail on the head. While the Z4 Roadster was a little bit awkward, the fastback lines and beefed up haunches of the M Coupe looked sharp. This black Z4 M Coupe for sale in Maryland may be of the new school, but its mission is that of speed and power.

The 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SL that Carter featured last week highlighted a very rare option for the manufacturer at the time, the ZF 5-speed manual gearbox. But the roadster wouldn’t be the only model to employ this advanced transmission. The rather staid looking W114 Coupe would feature the 5-speed in the six cylinder models, complimenting what was, at the time, the newest chassis in the lineup. This 250CE for sale in Michigan was imported into the US in the 1990s and featured at one time in the Mercedes-Benz Club of America’s magazine, The Star.

We’re seeing red here at GCFSB today. Following on to the Flash Red 1992 Volkswagen Corrado SLC we featured earlier today, here is a Signal Red 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC. Most of these C126 coupes you come across are painted in more muted hues, but a flashy color like this almost fits in with the bold style of the 1980s…as long as you don’t see it on a stock market tracker. For sale in New Jersey, this low mileage SEC is a classic, pillarless coupe that mixes the conservative style with an avant-garde touch.

The BMW Breadvan. The Clownshoe. Ugly. The Z3 coupe (and its M sibling) have been called everything under the sun, but I have always found the shape extremely eye-catching and funky. You may not like funky, but I think it works in this application, with those deeply flared haunches and angry nostrils. The car has attitude, especially when clad in screaming Dakar Yellow paint. Though this car also has a rebuild title, I am firmly in the camp that a salvage title does not necessarily sound the death knell for a car, especially one that is so desirable someone saw it worthwhile to fix back up. Although I’d never want to see the photos of the tree that landed on this low-mileage Z3, I would gladly take a chance on one that’s relatively affordable compared to its counterparts with repair-free histories and rapidly-climbing price tags.
