BMW M3 Evo E30 Is One Of Vilner’s Finest Projects

If Bulgarian tuner Vilner was Santa Claus, then their sleigh would be this gorgeous (but far from stock) 1990 BMW M3 Evo.

The classic sports coupe finished in Imola Red II, a shade that covers all exterior panels, except for the carbon fiber bumper, though, don’t look for it here as it wasn’t ready for the photo shoot.

Tinted Hella headlights with wipers, special taillights and a set of lightweight 18-inch rims from BBS complete the design of this impressive BMW M3, making it look fresh.

Remember the last word, because it best describes the cabin of the car. Here, Vilner added Sparco front seats, with five-point racing harness, wrapped in checkered textile fabric with leather edges. The tuner has used the same fabric on the doors, gear lever, roof and parcel shelf, and calls is “super functional, robust and comfortable, especially during the hot season”.

Described as “arguably one of the best on the Balkan Peninsula”, this special BMW M3 Evolution tips the scales at 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs). At its heart lies a 3,201cc inline-six engine, from an M3 E36, which pushes out 321 PS (316 hp / 236 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque, directing the output to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox.

The final touch is a scale model of the car, which proudly sits on the driver’s seat, with its doors, hood and boot open, revealing a similar exterior finish and cabin upholstery.

    Beautiful

  • They sacrificed an actual M3 Evo? Can they just get a regular M3 since they modified it this way.

  • Zed68

    Love the seats!

    The taste of its times. Very well implemented.

    Good idea…in concept. if i had a M3 Evo (which i don’t since i’m just a teen) I wouldn’t have sacrificed a M3 Evo or even a regular M3 E30 to build a tuner. I would just buy a regular E30 then customize it to look like an M3. But it is still pretty cool.
