If you happen to like old BMW M3s and watch the 24-hour endurance race called the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, be sure to take a good look at this bespoke E30 M3 DTM Edition released in 1990.

According to ClassicDriver, the car, which wears an exclusive Speed Yellow paint, has undergone highly professional tuning in its time. Unfortunately, we could not find out who specifically was responsible for the job. Major details of the project include a roll cage, suspension struts and braces, BBS Racing wheels fastened with titanium hardware, a carbon-fiber front splitter, and side mirror caps made out of the same material.

The cabin of the BMW M3 DTM Edition greets with Recaro Hybrid carbon seats, six-point safety harnesses, and a detachable racing steering wheel.

Powering the car is an aftermarket 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 195 hp (145 kW) connected to a sports exhaust manifold and muffler.

The ClassicDriver sale ad asks for an eyebrow-raising sum of $90,015 (U.S. dollars). This is nowhere near cheap even by modern sports car standards, and the odometer says the vehicle has over 100,000 kilometers (60,000+ miles) under its belt. Granted, the ad claims it has only traveled around 2,000 km (1,242 mi) after the engine swap, but, frankly enough, we can’t see it improving things much...
