This Coupe was posted on craigslist.org in Brooklyn, NY with 100k miles for $12,805. When this popped up in my email notifications, it caught my attention right away. Mustard and Ketchup, anyone? Dakar Yellow paint over Dream Red Extended Leather is a very unique combo, and one that I’ve never seen before. It’s certainly not for most people, and isn’t a combo I could see myself owning. In their own right, Dakar Yellow and Dream Red Extended Leather are appealing options for many people. The Extended Leather alone has a solid base of fans who go to great lengths to modify their Coupe with those pieces. The Chrome Line trim is a nice compliment to the Dream Red, as well. This Coupe look mostly stock, but does include some mods: navigation, two-way alarm with remote start, aftermarket head unit with Bluetooth, along with aluminum pedal covers, an aftermarket e-brake handle, and what looks like a ZHP shift knob. This may not be a desirable combo for most potential buyers, but it’s bound to be a very rare Coupe, with a good selection of choices. Likely better with a different paint color, but the Dream Red Extended Leather featuring Chrome Line trim all in addition to the 225 hp 3.0 liter M54 engine is pretty appealing on their own. Maybe a potential repaint? I think not with a $12k+ price tag, with 100k+ miles.
This M Coupe was posted on flickr.com by Michaelangelo10. There are no details posted about the Coupe, but it caught my attention for obvious reasons. The vinyl “camo” treatment is something I’ve never seen on a Coupe before, let along on a Dakar Yellow Coupe. The license plate is the same as this Coupe I posted just yesterday, so I contacted the owner for more details. I found some additional photos in this thread on pistonheads.com from the owner in the meantime. I’m curious about the tradition of “stickering” cars for Le Mans. I like the idea, though!
This M Coupe was posted for sale on pistonheads.com by Adam Saunders of Lancashire, United Kingdom with 71,000 miles for Â£10,995 (~$17,064 USD). This looks like a well maintained Coupe that is up to date on all wear items. Mods include: AC Schnitzer suspension,Â AC Schnitzer shift knob and Remus Cat back exhaust. In NA there were only 51 Dakar M Coupes sold, 41 with a black interior, with only 33 of them being from the 2000 model year. With only 821 RHD S50 M Coupes sold in the European market, this is likely a rare example.
