The BMW M3 is one of the most iconic performance cars of the last 40 years, and has helped put the German company's sporting credentials on the worldwide map.
It's morphed from being a highly strung four-cylinder rear driver to having one of the world's best naturally aspirated six cylinder engines to a hulking V8, before its current turbocharged six-cylinder guise. All the while it's maintained its rear-wheel drive layout and manual gearbox option (though it's an order-only proposition in 2017 in favour of a dual-clutch item). Prices start at $144,615 for the M3 COMPETITION up to $144,615 for the M3 COMPETITION.
It's also now available in a more focused Competition version that adds power and performance to the base four-door M3 sedan.
