25 years: That's how long it's been since this special M3 was build. It doesn't look a day over a year old. This car used to be a real panty dropper back in the day. Before the hi-tech era began, this is what young people drivove.
The guys over at TAG Motorsports had the luck and honor to rebuild one of these beauties in 2011. It's true, when the car came in it only had 28,000 miles on the clock (45,000 km) but they also did an amazing job turning it into a star.

Given the fact that the owner of the car had some pretty powerful vehicles in his garage, they knew that the end result had to be close to those monsters.
