BMW almost achieved perfection with the first M3 model released in 1986. Based on the E30, the BMW M3 was a success on the track and the road. Even if many didn’t think it would be that way. It was built as a homologation special to qualify for the DTM and Group A Touring classes.
The E30 BMW M3 uses the two door E30 chassis, although there were a few convertibles as well. Differences in the body of the two door include a flattened rear window and lightweight trunk lid or boot lid that sat slightly higher. Of course there were also the box flares that make the car such an iconic model today. In the end, only the bonnet, roof and sunroof are shared between the regular E30 and the E30 M3. The engine is the four cylinder double overhead cam S14 that produced between 143 kW and 147 kW, depending on the market. There were also some special models including the Evolution or EVO1 with more power, thinner glass, larger rear spoiler and deeper front splitter.
For those that grew up during the 1980s and liked European cars, this was probably one of your favourites. Being based on a more regular model differentiates it from the Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the same period.

HartCar is one person with an interest in cars. As a permanent traveler it is difficult to maintain stock and ship orders because I am never in one place for too long. Therefore I use a third party print on demand service to create and ship each item. Your order will be securely processed on their website. This also makes it ideal if you would like something customised such as a different colour E30 BMW M3, background or maybe a stripe or two. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, please get in touch.
