The 1999 BMW Z3 M Roadster (E36) is a high-performance variant of the BMW Z3 manufactured by BMW.

In North America, it was sold with a S52 inline-six, a weaker variant of the S50 engine fitted on European specification models. The Z3 M Coupé and M3 (E36) use the same powerplant.


Need for Speed: High Stakes

The M Roadster appears in the PC release of Need for Speed: High Stakes as a class A add-on vehicle.

No official Showcase for this car was offered for download, and it is the only non-bonus, non-AAA class vehicle that can't be upgraded, alongside the M Coupé.


  • In the PC release of Need for Speed: High Stakes, the M Roadster can be selected with either a Imola Red, Titan Silver, Evergreen, Alpine White, Cosmos Black, Estoril Blue, or Boston Green body paint colour.
  • In Need for Speed: High Stakes, although not offered with a showcase installer, the M Roadster's narration text, stats, and pictures can be found on the original EA Racing website.[1]
