1987 BMW E30 M3

There was a time when I thought the original BMW M3 to be the best high-performance car in the world. Not the fastest, the grippiest, the most glamorous or the most challenging, nor the most sonically pleasing or dramatic-looking. Just, simply, the best. As a package of usability and bringer-on of intense desire, the E30 M3 was the one.

March 1987 was when this Damascene moment took place. Estoril circuit in Portugal was where. It was not long after the M3's international launch on another circuit, Mugello in Italy, in August 1986
