1999 BMW E36 M3

The BMW E30 M3 was launched in 1985 and provided competition to Mercedes-Benz who had just released the 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth. It would mark BMWs entrance into factory performance vehicles. The M3 would prove its capabilities by winning at world-renowned races such as the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, World Touring Car Championship Drivers Title in 1987, and countless wins across the globe on both tarmac circuits and rally settings.

The M3 continued into the E36 series BMWs. This second generation M3 was introduced in 1992 at the Paris Motor Show.

Power is from a 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine offering 240 horsepower through a five-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels.

The BMW E36 M3 is considered to be one of the better-handling cars of all time and was awarded 'Best-Handling Car' by Car and Driver magazine in 1997.
