1988 BMW M3

1988 BMW M3

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.
