Known History

This is an original M3 in race specification, which was built up from a bare shell at a cost of over 26000GBP between 2007-11. The engine has been bored out to 95mm (as Sport EVO), with special pistons,worked cylinder head, Schrick Cams (292 In, 284 Ex.) and special carbon airbox producing 275hp. Suspension is by H&R in Germany and has Brembo brakes.

Ideal car for track days or even tarmac rally car (would require MSA logbook), as it is UK registered and has MoT until November 2013. This M3 could even be driven to events!

The M3 was unveiled at the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show having been developed by BMW Motorsport as a homologation special based on the E30 3-series saloon. In order that the car could compete in Touring Car Racing under the Group A rules it was a requirement to build 5000 identical cars. The M3 made its first appearance at the Monza round of the World Touring Car Championship in March 1987, although most of those entered were disqualified!

The normally aspirated engine was based on the block of the 320, overbored to 2.3 litres with a 16 valve head, producing just under 200bhp in road trim. The body shell was revised with box arches to accommodate larger wheels and tyres, front and rear spoilers and stiffened with bonded screens front and rear. The suspension set up incorporated increased castor, lowered springs and a special anti-roll bar linked to the uprated struts. Larger bearings and five stud wheel mounting came from the 5-series.

Production of the M3 continued until early 1992, by which time some 18000 had been built through various Evolution and special edition models.
