[History]

When BMW had to build 5000 M3s to homologate the car for Group A competition, the resulting road cars shared nothing but their hoods with the standard E30’s. Then, BMW needed a race car with a bigger four-cylinder and 18-inch wheels to race DTM, so the Sport Evolution was born. Only 600 were made, just in 1990, and the M division’s list of modifications over a standard E30 M3 is fascinating.
For starters, the Sport Evo sits 0.39 inches lower than the previous evolution, on 16-inch wheels. Its front fenders were also made taller to take 18-inch wheels for racing. It’s on wider tracks with the front anti-roll bar linked to the struts, and a beefier one at the rear. BMW tripled the steering caster angle as well, throwing in stronger wheel bearings, stiffer springs and uprated shocks to complete the handling package.

The S14B25 four-cylinder, BMW’s iron block engine with a head based on that of the M1’s straight-six was stroked to 2.5 liters with a new crankshaft. The engine also got larger inlet valves and sodium-filled exhaust valves, with a larger exhaust manifold, more aggressive camshafts, and extra oil nozzles to help cooling those pistons. The result was 238 horsepower at 7000 rpm, with a slight decrease in torque compared with the standard M3. BMW used red spark plug cables to make sure you noticed if you popped the hood. The M3’s gearbox remained the dogleg variant of Getrag’s 265 five-speed, straight from the race car.
The Sport Evo had thinner glass, a more open grille and extra cooling ducts replacing the fog lights, but its most amazing feature is the adjustable rear wing.

[This car]

This particular car was originally delivered to Portugal, to its one single owner. It only has 50.000 km since new, preserving its pure state. It had an original ECU upgrade by Schnitzer right when it was new. Being one of only 600 original cars ever built, this exemplar’s uniqueness is as impressive as its immaculate condition. Ready to hit the race track!
