As part of the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este even, BMW also celebrated the 30th anniversary of the iconic M3. Three decades ago, for the first time, BMW offered a midsize sports car which has seen multiple iterations since. The latest one being the F80/F82 M3/M4.

The founder and ancestor, BMW M3 E30 with its four-cylinder engine was present on the green lawn surrounding the villa and was featured in a beautiful red paint job. Furthermore, this is the E30 M3 Sport Evolution, a racing car built to a set of specifications to comply with the FIA’s Group A Touring Class regulations, which required an initial run of 500 road cars.


The E36 M3 was also present with its Dakar Yellow launch color, sitting next to the E46 M3 which shines in the Phoenix Yellow hue.

BMW’s V8 E92 M3 and the new F80/F82 are missing the celebratory party, but that doesn’t take away from the beautiful photography and scenery.
