Oh, those 80’s-90’s cars… Either you love their classy, pure design, either you hate their common lines. I find myself in the first bunch of people: the 80’s were the craziest years for me! The Mk2 VW Golf GTI, the Lancia Delta Integrale and, of course, the BMW M3. The thing is…how much are you willing to pay to own an 80’s car in 2016? $40.000? $50.000? What about $150.000?
Don’t jump at me, it’s only a question based on the asking price for this black beauty. I’m talking about the supreme E30 BMW M3 Sport Evolution. Yes, it’s a rare car, but it’s also a rare price. Before we judge, let’s take a look under the hood, to see if it worth that amount of money.
The main thing to keep in mind is that the Sport Evolution is the fastest E30 ever produced. It boosts 235 hp from its 2.3 liter, 16V inline-4 engine. Thanks to these horses, it does 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds, reaching a top speed of 250 km/h. Only 600 items of this factory-tuned version were assembled.
Ok. So it’s faster than the Evo 1, Evo 2 and any other version that can come in your mind. It’s also lighter and comes packed with a special, unique aerodynamics kit. But does it worth $150.000? It could, because of its very low mileage: under 50.000 miles (or under 80.000 km). It’s also in mint condition, as we can see in the pictures. So, if you buy it for your own joy, it could worth even more. But if you intend to own it for selling it later, I don’t know how much more value will accumulate this special factory-tuned variant over the following years.
