The Original and its Legacy: The BMW E46 M3 "Hamann"

The BMW E46 M3 is the third generation of the famous M3 family and was built from 2000 to 2006. This model represents a significant evolution compared to its predecessors and was significantly influenced by the engineers Wolfgang Reitzle and Gerhard Richter. The E46 M3 stands out for its sporty-classic design and outstanding performance. Under the hood, there's a 3.2-liter in-line six-cylinder engine (S54B32) with 343 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. These specs allowed for an acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds, making the E46 M3 one of the most powerful vehicles of its time. The car is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission as well as a sequential SMG-II gearbox. A special feature of the E46 M3 is the so-called "Charge Pressure Overpressure System," which gives the engine the ability to achieve peak performance.
