Bmw e30 M3
Highly sought after, the M3 is a motorsport legend. It came fitted with the 2.3lt, 4-cylinder engine producing 200bhp in original, non-catalysed form. That power arrived at a fizzing 6750rpm, and getting there was to experience a mechanical symphony that sets the hairs on the back of your neck standing. And thanks to a light weight by today’s standards it still feels quick with the 0-60mph benchmark dispatched in less than seven seconds.
Driving through a motorsport-inspired dog-leg gearbox, it was also very easy to live with. Despite the every-day docility, using it that way would be to miss out on one of this car’s finest attributes. Unencumbered by electronic safety nets, the purity of the driving experience is nothing short of breathtaking. It steers with amazing precision, the nose tucking into the apex of a corner with just a flick of the meatily-weighted steering and ensconced in the supportive Recaro seat there’s a feeling of superb balance and adjustability.
Kudos to the heavily-revised suspension for that, but it’s a revelation all the same. Such delicacy is certainly a far cry from today’s stiffly-suspended performance cars that are tuned for setting records around the Nurburgring
