1988 BMW M3

Started on June 14, 2000, 8:54 p.m.

We have had the hots for these cars since we first tested one as our cover story in the January 1988 issue of GRM (then called Auto-X). With a curb weight of just over 2800 pounds, 192 horsepower on tap from a true race-inspired 16-valve, 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine and flared "boy racer" body work and a chassis to back up the look, you know why.
