It received a slightly reworked chassis as well as a mild power increase over the original M3 (E30) following a new more efficient air intake, new pistons, lightened flywheel, and a reprogrammed engine management system.
The M3 (E30) was originally intended as a limited homologation model for the historic Group A racing class, as it received extensive performance upgrades such as heavily revised body work. It soon became a standard production model sports car between 1986 and 1991 by BMW's motorsport division after becoming highly sought-after.
The model spawned a series of 'Evolution' homologation models to meet new racing regulations, with the Evolution II designed as a homologation special for the 1988 DTM car.
