BMW left the highest level of European touring car racing in 1992. With the 2013 BMW M Performance M3 Racing Car, the German marque’s latest racing beast, it’s easy to believe that the company dedicated the entirety of the past 20+ years preparing for its re-entry into racing among Audi and Mercedes-Benz on the tracks of Europe. That’s because this M3-based race car utterly dominated the competition upon BMW’s return. Bruno Spengler won the driver’s championship, and BMW won the team title and the manufacturer’s title. The team also set fastest lap records, all while cutting build costs and increasing driver safety, two goals of recent regulations. It helps too, that the M3’s aesthetics are above reproach – practically every line screams pure speed. Both in terms of performance and design, the M3 Race Car is close to a Formula car than a GT racer. The M Performance M3 is powered by a naturally-aspirated four-liter V8 with a six-speed pneumatically-actuated transmission. Braking is breathtakingly effective and the car with driver weighs in at less than 2,500 pounds. The fluid beauty of the body has enough aero to make it stick to the track surface during even the rainiest events, while still managing a top speed of around 186 MPH. Put the M3 Race Car up against anything in your Forza Motorsport 5 garage and you will find it is one of the fastest and best-handling cars in the game.

The 2013 BMW M Performance M3 Racing Car is a touring car that appears in Forza Motorsport 5 as part of the Meguiar’s Car Pack.
