2000 BMW M Coupe
Why This Car Is Special
One thing BMW knows how to do is build sporty cars. BMW made
headlines with the introduction of the M coupe like the silver 2000
BMW M Coupe we have here at Skyway Classics.
M cars have established reputations as the cool, good-looking,
fast, fun sports cars that everyone wants to have parked in their
driveways, and if raw-edged performance is what you're after, the M
provides it in spades.
These high-performance versions have a 3.2-liter S52 inline-six
that was factory rated at 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque,
which is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox and a
factory limited-slip differential.
Developed by BMW's M division and based on the M roadster, the M
coupe has an upgraded engine, suspension, brakes, wheels, tires and
With stunning thrust and a potent revving capability, the cars
exhibit excellent performance and handling. The gear shift lever
feels tight, the torque band is wide and the brakes are
confidence-inspiring with a progressive feel to the pedal.
The M coupe's suspension is similar to the roadster's, with struts
and arc-shaped lower arms in the front and semi-trailing arms in
the rear, but the coupe boasts stiffer springs and a larger
anti-roll bar. With the coupe's perfectly balanced 50/50-percent
weight distribution, its body feels solid - even around the
Inside, the car offers seating for two in comfortable, sporty,
leather bucket seats with integrated headrests. Instrument gauges
on the dash and center console are ringed in classy chrome and
there are enough of them to tell you what the car is doing at any
The M coupe also provides a practical cargo space behind the seats
for luggage or two full-size golf bags. Rear storage areas are
accessible through a hatchback rear door and a cargo cover can be
rolled back for privacy.
Standard equipment on these sportsters includes alloy wheels,
traction control, ABS, limited-slip differential, heated windshield
wiper jets, cellular phone pre-wiring, power heated door locks with
two-stage unlock, side airbags, a/c and six-way power seats, and
ours has a sunroof.
BMW launched its 2000 M coupe with a completely new shape from the
A-pillars back. The roof blends into the top of a rear hatch with
spoiler, a third brake light and new taillights. With
chrome-trimmed gills, four exhaust tips, and a huge rear-end that
arches and swells out to house 9-inch wide rear wheels, the M coupe
has achieved a modern, beefy look.
The exterior is finished silver metallic and looks great, as it
should with only a tad over 13000 miles on it!
If you want a fun, rare, sporty BMW, then the 2000 BMW M Coupe we
have here at Skyway Classics is something you need to own and
