1987 BMW E30 M3
Two pre-production BMW E30 M3s were entered in the IMSA Firestone Firehawk Endurance Championship by longtime IMSA competitor Korman Autoworks. The Firehawk series was for essentially stock production cars with minimum modifications allowed, and the BMW M3 competed against more powerful cars such as the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, Nissan 300ZX and Porsche 944. The E30 M3 is powered by 2.3-liter 4-cylinder producing 200 horsepower combined with a Getrag 5-speed manual transmission.
