1988 E30 M3
The E30 M3 might not have been the *first* M car, but it certainly set the tone as a truly race-driven homologation special. The one seen here is not exactly stock. There’s an S52 under the hood (that’s BMW speak for E36 M3 engine), and enough suspension goodies to make sure it’ll outhandle the vast majority of cars produced today. [More pics…]
Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor, and can be found on Twitter. He's shared the track with plenty of M3s exactly like this while driving his own E30. He can't recommend enough that someone buys this car.
