Car of the day – 1996 BMW M3 E36 3.2-liter straight-six 316 hp 1920×1080 HD

The 1996 BMW M3 E36 is not just an ordinary car, it is an M3. Everyone who knows what the M3 as all about, they will understand what i mean by saying “not just an ordinary car”.

The M3 got its respect all around the world. The M3 badge symbolises power, respect and quality. All BMWs are good cars, but all BMWs with the M badges are great and thousands of people from all around the world would agree with me.

The 1996 BMW M3 E36 features a 6-speed manual transmission and a 3.2-liter (3201 cc) S50B32 195 cu in straight-six engine. The 1996 M3’s engine produces up to 316 hp (236 kW) at 7400 rpm and torque of 260 lbs-ft (350 Nm) at 3250 rpm. If everything is done correctly, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. Without that limit, the car can reach a top speed of 170 mph or 274 km/h.

The original price (MSRP) for a 1996 BMW M3 E36 (base model) was set at around 38,800 USD ($). The price in 2013 goes for less than 10,000 USD ($) for this 1996 BMW M3 E36 base version model in good condition. A lot of E36 M3 models are modified, others are not in that great condition any more, so the price depends a lot on these factors.

Is it worth of buying it? If you have a chance to get one of these, absolutely get one. It’s a superior car and it’s worth buying it.
