The BMW M3 GT E36 was limited to 356 units and was exclusivly available in British Racing Green – an iconic colour that until today is used for certain BMW special editions. The goal of the M3 GT was to provide a high performance edition of the regular M3 that showed track capabilities.

Powered by an inline naturally aspirated 3 L 6-cylinder engine, the limited series M3 had a poweroutput of 295 hp @700 rpm and a peak torque of 320 Nm @3500 rpm. That makes a power to liter ratio of almost 100 hp/l – which for the 90s was pretty impressive. The engine featured the at the time brand-new VANOS variable cam-control system and 6 singular throttles.

Other than having a highly capable engine, the M3 GT E36 is a very good looking car – infact, for many, it is still the best looking M3 of all times. It features a very clean aeropackage with subtle front-splitter and a small rear spoiler.
