  • 2004 E30 M3 OMG!!!

    Don't know if this is true, but it came from CNN website.
    I can only imagine what this would be like




    BMW to unveil "Back to Roots" M3
    BMW's M division brand manager Tom Salkowski reported to the press today that his division has been working on a limited-production run of the world renowned E30 chassis M3 for a mid 2004 release as the "E30 M3".

    Salkowski told the press, "We wanted to bring back the car that made us famous," and "If it wasn't for the E30 M3, BMW would not be where it is today." One of the most successful touring cars of all time, the E30 M3 has been a cult car since it's introduction in Europe in 1986.


    Salkowski stressed that the car would be very close to the original, while being completely redesigned from the ground up. The interior and exterior will reflect the original in almost every detail. Salkowski noted "We wanted to make it a lightweight true to it's purpose race car that can be driven on the street."


    We are told the car will be motivated by an updated version of the car's original S14 engine, to be named the S16. "We wanted to keep it's character" Salkowski stated. He didn't go into details, but suggested that through the use of many of the new technologies in the current M engines and the new V12 in the 760 sedan, they have been able to get over 300 horsepower from this 2.5 liter 4 cylinder motor. Weighing under 2800 pounds, this car will be a real rocket, possibly the fastest vehicle BMW will have produced.


    The head of BMW's design division Chris Bangle noted that the design for the vehicle would be basically unaltered, with the same "quirky" lines and "boy-racer" look that keeps the car so original. "It was a unique process" Bangle said, "We had to work within the lines of this vehicle from the mid-eighties and update it without losing it's original look. Bangle, when asked about the criticism he has garnered from many of his recent designs, stated that it was not a redesign, just a freshening.


    The car will be unveiled this coming April at the New York International Auto Show to the anxiously awaiting public.

                  Well we can't have Darran thinking he is special by having something nobody else does, so I thought I'd better join in just to make sure he doesn't have the only Cecotto.

                      But yours has those strange black centred wheels, you wouldn't see me driving around with those nasty looking things on my car I can tell you. Tell you what, I'll give you 50 for them so I can use them as track wheels! :rolling:

                      Now stop piddling on my parade, I was feeling all special and warm inside for a moment!

                        Do you want me to throw in the dead pedal free of charge with those wheels.

                            Well the E90 is supposedly going to have some of the E30's qualities - simplicity, lightness etc so - if that turns out to be true - then the M version could have similarities to the E30 M3.

                            I'll believe it when I see it though!!
