The legendary E30 BMW M3 from the late ‘80s is popping up in our news again in a video which highlights the car`s impressive handling and driving capabilities, and that despite its age.
Well-known journalist and BMW connoisseur Matt Farrah, has taken the 1988 E30 BMW M3 out for a spin to demonstrate that this old lad still has what it takes to do some serious damage on the track.
And the burn out video is showing what it can do in a stock form. Well, not entirely stock, the model coming with some improvements at the driving system. Performance wise, the model remains pretty much stock.
The car`s new improvements refer to the exterior. They were necessary in order to increase its aggressive look and air flow, especially in tight corners or at high speeds. The new styling changes refer to the EVO III splitter at the front and rear, along with brake ducts.
Besides the mint condition at the exterior, the 1988 E30 BMW M3 also comes, despite its age, with just 82,000 miles onboard, meaning that the engine is still delivering some serious punch, no matter what we think about its usage on the road.
The car`s S14 engine demonstrates that the ’88 E30 BMW M3 could still keep up with today`s much more evolved and “gifted” BMW models; at least for a short period of time!
The last time we saw an E30 BMW M3 exposing its good looks was back in April, when Harry Matcalfe, the original founder of EVO auto magazine, “exposed” his gorgeous 1989 M3 Roberto Ravaglia Edition. In a video, he highlights the car`s Navaro Silver Metallic colour scheme and grey interior, as well as the history of the E30 BMW M3.
You can admire the pristine 1988 E30 BMW M3 while is out for a spin, in the video below. Enjoy and don’t forget to share your opinions with us!
