The original M3 harkens back to what it means to be a race car on the street. Take an M3 for a spin and you will find yourself downshifting just to hear the engine rev. And rev it will, the motor loves to roar, and it builds clean usable power throughout the entire range. This is German automotive engineering at its finest, setting the bar high for later generations of the M3.
— Official description [1]

The 1991 BMW M3 - also known as BMW M3 E30 and abbreviated as BMW M3 '91 - is a RWD sports car by BMW featured in Forza Motorsport 2 as part of the December Car Pack, and as standard in all subsequent main series titles as well as Forza Street.

Synopsis

The E30 M3 is a sports car developed by BMW's M performance division as a homologation model for the Group A racing class. Based on the third generation BMW 3 Series, it was produced for the 1986 to 1991 model years, and replaced by the E36 in 1992.

Platform

The E30 M3 features wider bodywork than regular 3 Series models in order to improve aerodynamics and to accomodate a wider track.

Drivetrain

It is powered by a 2.3 litre high-revving four-cylinder engine, codenamed S14B23, which borrowed several designs from the BMW M1 such as a dual overhead camshafts and individual throttle plates. The S14 engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, and produces 214 hp (160 kW) and 244 ft·lb (331 N·m) of torque.[2]

Unlock

It had been offered to players at any random point via levelling up, and was also available from a bounty event in December. Since the April 2019 update, it has been available for purchase via the Buy Cars menu.
