Here’s Why the BMW E30 M3 Sport Evo Will Always Be Amazing
A True BMW Legend
There are few cars that have a bigger fanbase than the BMW E30 M3 Sport Evo. The car is simply a legendary car and it’s what started the M3 on its current path of greatness. The guys over at Carfection somehow got their hands on a slew of M3s from multiple generations and decided to put together a multi-episode video series on the car, and its impact on the world of motorsports and motoring in general.
The E30 M3 Sport Evo famously shares only its hood with the standard car. The vehicle was tweaked in every way to build it into one of the best racing cars out there. The engine was a naturally aspirated four-cylinder that was built to rev out. The transmission for the Euro-spec cars was a dogleg five-speed. Other areas of the world got the traditional H-pattern transmission.
BMW only made 600 of these cars, and that makes them exceedingly rare, though not the rarest of the special editions out there. The car that the publication gets its hands on happens to be a single-owner vehicle. It’s a stunning example. When compared to modern cars, the E30 M3 is really quite slow, but that doesn’t make it any less of a legend, and as the presenter says in the video below, it still lives up to its reputation.
