16. BMW M3 E30
When most people think of BMW performance, they think of the “M” class cars. But among the dozens of models that wore the M badge, the M3 E30 is the most iconic. BMW produced the model from 1985-1992. The E30 M3 was a homologation special which they designed to compete in the European Touring Car Championship.
The heart of the E30 M3 was the S14 straight-four engine with 2.3-liters of displacement, 195 HP and later 215 HP. The acceleration figures weren’t that great at around seven seconds to 60 mph. And in modern terms, this car is slow, even though it handles like dream and is a blast to drive.
