1990 BMW M3 e30 Sport Evolution - 2.5
Between 1989 and March 1990 only 600 were produced, costing 86 million Italian lire (excluding optional equipment), certainly not cheap for the time!
The Bavarian manufacturer’s engineers modified many aerodynamic and mechanical parts for this model to make it more competitive and successful in races (and were successful in their efforts).
The M3 won numerous international titles for BMW in a short space of time.
On 22 March 1987, in its first appearance at Monza, the BMW M3 immediately proved itself to be something exceptional, its 2.3 l four-cylinder engine producing 300 hp (which soon became 350 with subsequent revisions), which powered it to a top speed of over 280 km/h (175 mph), a monstrous number for the time.
The unforgettable Sport Evolution was the last and most powerful development of the e30 M3 family, an iconic model which made it one of the most legendary sports cars of the '80s and '90s.
The Sport Evolution differed from its predecessors in various areas to the extent it was considered a separate design from previous M3 e30s.
The main changes primarily concerned the engine, with displacement increasing from 2.3 to 2.5 l, reaching an incredible power output of 238 hp
Aesthetically, the widening of the front axle track was immediately noticeable, along with red trim on the bumpers in contrast to the body colour.
Amongst the most unusual and flashy accessories were the front splitter and rear spoiler, both adjustable to regulate downforce to the best values for the track to be driven
The interior, on the other hand, featured Recaro seats, alcantara handbrake lever, shift knob, steering wheel and seat belts in red.
The passenger compartment also contained a “Sport Evolution” badge
A youthful yet already legendary car, whose value is constantly increasing
