This 2001 BMW M Roadster is finished in Phoenix Yellow Metallic over black Nappa leather and was recently acquired by the selling dealer from the second owner. It now shows just under 8,700 miles and is powered by a 3.2L S54 inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Other factory features include a rollover protection system, sports seats, a powered soft top, Dynamic Stability Control, and cruise control. Within the last two months, a new battery has been installed and the oil was changed. This M Roadster is now being offered with the original window sticker, the factory manuals and supplements, a clean Carfax, and a clear Pennsylvania title.
Just 921 M Roadsters were built for the model year, and only 39 were finished in the Phoenix Yellow over the entire 5-year production run. Paintwork is noted on the driver’s quarter panel on this car due to a measurable difference in paint meter readings. The matching body panel VIN stickers are shown in the gallery below, and the recent Carfax report indicates no history of accidents or other damage.
Staggered 17″ M RoadStar wheels wear ZR-rated Michelin Pilot Sport tires measuring 225/45 up front and 245/40 out back. The powered black soft top and its plastic rear window are shown up close from a number of angles in the gallery below.
The heated sport seats are power adjustable and upholstered in black Nappa leather. Note the factory roll hoops and leather-wrapped sport steering wheel.
This M Roadster was optioned with a BMW CD radio, while standard interior features include central locking, one-touch power windows, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and auxiliary gauges in the center console. The 6-digit digital odometer currently reads under 8,700 miles as shown in the gallery below, and the selling dealer has only driven the car about 10 miles in the last three months.
The 3.2-liter S54 inline-six was rated at 315 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque from the factory. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a factory limited-slip differential. Per the seller, this M Roadster recently received an inspection, a new battery, and an oil service.
