A notch above the ultimate driving machine, MotoeXotica is pleased to present this 2004 M3 Cabriolet. It was only available in coupe and cabriolet bodies as the previous sedan version had been dropped. The�E46�M3, first introduced in October 2000, appeared worldwide with the new 3.2L�S54�M-tuned engine, with a redline of 8,000 rpm. As with most M engines, the S54 had six independent throttle bodies and this time it came with a drive-by-wire throttle. In the U.S., the E46 M3 came with similar engine output as the European version - 333�horsepower and 262 lbs-ft of torque due to close-coupled catalytic converters closer to the engine exhaust ports. A six-speed Getrag manual transmission with a conventional clutch came standard, but optional was a�SMG drive logic transmission (also known as the SMG II), which this car has. It is the standard six-speed Getrag transmission with an electro-hydraulically actuated clutch, meaning there's no clutch pedal. Shifts are made via the�SMG�gear knob or the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
