We Can Honestly Never Get Enough Of The E30 BMW M3

God's Chariot will do that to you.

It was in 1986 when BMW launched an icon, a nameplate that lives on to this day. At the same time, the German automaker also created a new segment. The E30 M3, appropriately referred to as God’s Chariot, was the homologation result of the M3 for Group A Touring Car racing. Mercedes-Benz also had something to do with it, as Harry Metcalfe correctly points out in this latest episode of his YouTube channel series, Harry’s Garage. Today, the evo magazine founder gets behind the wheel of a 1989 E30 M3, specifically the Roberto Ravaglia edition.

Not at all surprisingly, Harry once owned an E30 M3 nearly identical to this one many years ago, so this is sort of a homecoming for him. And, low and behold, God’s Chariot is as dazzling as ever.

In more recent years, the E30 M3 has regained popularity, resulting in surging prices. It is a true road car (and motorsport) icon and it helped set into motion what BMW’s M division has become today. We really can’t stop gushing about this car enough, but we’ll let Harry take over from here.
