In an era where successive generations of vehicles get larger and heavier, lightweight specials crop up occasionally to cater to the purist. Porsche has a penchant for lightweight specials, such as the 911 GT3RS and various Club Sport models that have peppered the lineup throughout the years. BMW has been hip to this lightweight game as well, and saw the potential shortly after the introduction of the E36 M3 in the US market. The Lightweight (LTW) was a 1995 homologation special model that saw the deletion of luxuries such as air conditioning, a radio, some sound deadening material, leather trim and the sunroof. Aluminum skinned doors, sport suspension and a revised rear axle ratio gave the Lightweight an edge over the standard M3. A little over 100 of these LTW models were offered to US customers and are highly prized by Bimmer fans today. This M3 LTW for sale in Florida is unlike many in that it has a good amount of miles under its belt.

The last M3 Lightweight we featured was on offer at $54,900. That particular car had 37,000 miles on the clock. Most of the Lightweights I’ve seen for sale have been lower mileage examples with asking prices well above the $40,000 mark, making this higher mileage one an intriguing opportunity. With so few built, these were cars that were collectable from the start. In light of where E30 prices are headed, this might be the next best thing when it comes to earlier build M3s. Given the mileage, this LTW looks clean. I have a feeling it won’t last long at this price.
