The BMW M3 Sport Evolution (Evo III) is a 600 example limited-production E30 M3 model with its entire production taking place between December 1989 and March 1990.

It received a 2.5 litre version of the S14 engine, as well as a slightly reworked body and chassis. Red bumper stripes were applied to further distinguish it from other models.

The M3 (E30) was originally intended as a limited homologation model for the historic Group A racing class, as it received extensive performance upgrades such as heavily revised body work. It soon became a standard production model sports car between 1986 and 1991 by BMW's motorsport division after becoming highly sought-after.

The model spawned a series of 'Evolution' homologation models to meet new racing regulations, with the Sport Evolution designed as a homologation special for the 1990 DTM car.

It was succeeded by the BMW M3 (E36).

Games

Need for Speed: World

The BMW M3 Sport Evolution was released in Need for Speed: World on November 8, 2011 as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a C class vehicle.

The M3 Sport Evolution has a low weight, which allows it to gain several performance advantages. Braking is redundant in most corners, as the M3's steering has a good precision. Acceleration is slightly above average for B class. Top speed is 188 mph (302 km/h).

It is one of the best B class cars for racing due to its well-rounded performance. Unlike the Lotus Elise, it lacks a very direct steering although this is compensated by an extremely powerful nitrous boost. Players can successfully compete with mid-ranged A class cars once they fit the car with Pro or Ultra series parts.

Stock: 467 (C class) Maximum: 688 (A class)
