BMW M3 E30

History

The BMW E30 M3 is the first car built by BMW M GmbH, between 1985 and 1992. For a lot of purist, it is the ultimate M BMW. The engine was a 2.3 then 2.5L 4-cylinder, developing over 200hp, and the chassis the one of the e30 BMW coupe. Originally built for racing, it had also a lot of street-legal competitors, like the sierra cosie or the Mercedes Benz 190 E 2.3-16V. But the M3 was always better.

 

Design

It’s my most realistic car so far.

~Exterior~

I focused my creation on realism, especially on exterior realism. I actually built the entire car because of the front grill and lamps. The bumpers were quite tricky to build, but I think they look great. The wheels are original as well.

~Interior~

Here, the central console was tricky to build. I’m happy with the interior even if it could be better built. I used an official color scheme here.

~"Transmission”~

The engine bay took me hours to finish entirely. I tried to make it as realistic as possible. I used pictures I found of the bay to recreate mine.

It’s the same underneath the car. It’s my first car with a detailed underside.The exhaust line was quite difficult to recreate; I’m pleased with the output. ;-)
