Twenty Years of the BMW M3 - a Legend in Sports

It is one of the most successful chapters in the history of the automobile and in international motorsport alike: the story of the BMW M3 - and to this day, the end of this unique success story is not even in sight.

In 2006 BMW and BMW M GmbH celebrated the 20th birthday of the most successful touring car of all times. Within two decades, three generations of the BMW M3 have successfully entered and conquered both the market and the race track, each of these models quite unique and legendary in its own right. Dominating the racing scene and paving the way on the road for a new species of particularly sporting, but nevertheless highly practical series-production cars fully suited for everyday use, the BMW M3 to this day thrills a loyal and constantly growing group of enthusiasts and aficionados the
world over.
