This BMW M3 EVO2 Was Never Imported to the US

Evolution models were never imported in the U.S., yet this is an EVO2 right here in the U.S.! Aside from the obvious visual tweaks it's quite special on several other fronts too: only five hundred were ever built, all with 217 horsepower and that funky “dogleg” Getrag five-speed.

“Fine, we’ll do it ourselves.”

If this isn’t stamped somewhere on the BMW M1, it surely should be. The car was originally conceived as a joint Lamborghini-BMW project that would produce a race car with enough street units to meet homologation rules for Group 4 racing. Trouble was, Lamborghini found itself in financial straits and the fellows up in Munich were thus left to finish the M1 on their own. What resulted was a Giugiaro-designed, mid-engined marvel that ended up being the fastest production car of its time.

I became interested in cars after buying my first one, a Volkswagen GTI mk4. It was a fun car that left me wanting a faster car, then an older car, and then a more 'stylish' car. It was followed up by a BMW E28 5-series about a year later, but then I wanted to get back into something a bit smaller; at first, I thought of the classic, BMW E30.

Let's discuss the 2002 first. Or perhaps we should call it an S2002? You see, this is the first BMW 2002 to have had the original drivetrain swapped out for Honda's high revving F20C, originally found in the S2000. And when the original 240hp proved to be inadequate, it was fitted with a turbo running ten pounds of boost, good for producing 404HP at the wheels.

I still clearly remember seeing it listed online, the first time the owner opened the garage door and I spotted it, my first ride as a passenger. But the thing that sold me was getting in, all snug in the Recaro BMW seat, putting on the four points, grabbing the wheel, and feeling that everything was exactly where it should be. It was built for me, this car was meant to be mine.

These cars don't come around too often. The BMW 2000CS replaced the BMW 3200CS, which was seen as too inefficient due to its V8. Indeed, the 2000CS bowed with a four-cylnder. However, the 2000 series features the 3200's Bertone styling with a much sleeker front end.

Driven by Design: BMW E9 3.0CS

Driven by Design: BMW E9 3.0CS

By Yoav Gilad / 24 Mar 2014 / 9 Comments Read More

Proportionally, the 3.0CS does a masterful job of deceiving the eye. It is a truly beautiful car, don’t misunderstand, but there is a successful combination of elements designed to hide certain packaging constraints. For instance, the doors are mounted closer to the front wheels than rear, which is most certainly not a front engine, rear-wheel drive look.
