Mojo Deals: The Performance Edition!

This week’s new car is the 2011 BMW M3 Coupe base model. The M3 is a great car for driving enthusiasts who long for excellent performance and handling, and sheer automotive excitement. Its 414hp V8 engine will make your heart race and your knuckles turn white! However, with a price tag around $60k, buyers may feel they are not getting enough interior enhancements, and adding options quickly becomes very pricey. The M3 is a beautiful car with terrific performance and drivability, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money! First, let’s take a look at the BMW and its specs:

2011 BMW M3 Coupe (Base)

As you can see, there are many ways to make your dollar go farther when you’ve got the Mojo price on a used vehicle. All three high-performance vehicles are equipped with similar manual transmissions to the M3. The Corvette and the GT500 have much larger and more powerful engines, and while the Exige has the smallest engine of all four cars, its light weight gives it a comparable 0-60 time and the best handling of the group. The Corvette and the GT500 are both equipped with leather interiors, and the Z06 even has navigation! There’s no question that with Mojo on your side, you can drive a beautiful and powerful sports car, and still have money for gas!
