BMW M3 & M4 : The complete history of these ultimate driving machines
The BMW M3 was developed in the 1980s, and was intended to be the world's most successful racing saloon car. Not only did it achieve that in its very first season of motorsport, but went on to achieve lasting commercial success as a high performance road car, with over 300,000 units sold.
Between 1987 and 2004, the naturally aspirated 2.3-litre E30 M3 won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring five times, and won the Spa 24 Hours four times.
Gaining titles in World, Euro, British, Italian, German and Australian Touring Car Championships, the M3 also competed as a rally car, contesting national and World Rally Championship rounds between 1987 and 1989, and, in the hands of Bernard Béguin gained a victory on the Tour de Corse in '87.
Lavishly illustrated with superb photographs, detailed illustrations, and cutaways, this comprehensive model history reveals the full story and legacy of these high performance premium saloons, with performance summaries and production numbers from 1986 to 2020.
