1988 BMW E30 M3 Sport Evolution Automotive Photography for private client in Scotland.
The BMW M3 is a high-performance version of the BMW 3 Series, developed by BMW's in-house motorsport division, BMW M GmbH. M3 models have been produced for every generation of 3 Series since the E30 M3 was introduced in 1986. The initial model was available in a coupé body style, with a convertible body style added soon after. M3 sedans were available during the E36 (1994-1999) and E90 (2008-2012) generations.
The E30 M3 used the BMW S14 four-cylinder engine, a high-revving DOHC design with a head closely based on that of the BMW S38 six-cylinder engine, the block from the BMW M10 four-cylinder was used. In countries where the M3 was sold with a catalytic converter, the initial versions produced 143 kW (192 bhp) and had a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph). In countries where a catalytic convertor was not required, the engine produced 149 kW (200 bhp). In September 1989, European M3s were upgraded to the 158 kW (212 bhp) (as introduced on the Ravaglia special edition model), increasing the top speed to 240 km/h (149 mph).
A more powerful and lighter "Sport Evolution" model (sometimes referred as "EVO3") with a limited production run of 600 units was produced with an upgraded 2,467 cc (150.5 cu in) engine producing 175 kW (235 bhp) at 7,000 rpm and 240 N⋅m (177 lbf⋅ft) at 4,750 rpm. The top speed was increased to 249 km/h (155 mph). Sport Evolution models have enlarged front bumper openings and an adjustable multi-position front splitter and rear wing. Brake cooling ducts were installed in place of front fog lights. - Wiki
