The BMW M3 of the series E30, first introduced in 1985, is one of the most famous sports sedans ever made. Heavily modified with front spoiler, rear spoiler, wide fenders to enable a wider track and corresponding sill extensions and new rear window frame, this vehicle was homologated by the Bavarians to the base for the touring car sport. The 2.3 to 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder initially made 143 kW / 195 and gave in the last stage, the Sport Evolution version from 1992, about 175 kW / 238 hp. The label CMR, which is slowly but surely becoming a specialist in motorsport, dedicates these BMW M3 several modelcars in scale 1:43.
