The racetrack is the 2015 BMW M3's bullshit detector

I met up with Road & Track's own Sam Smith and Robin Warner at Mid-Ohio, my home track for club races and a place where two of the Armco barriers in "Thunder Valley" have my name on the purchase order. Sam was there to drive a real unicorn—a genuine Hartge-built Group A racing E30 M3. Robin and I were there to hold… » 10/17/14 4:07pm 10/17/14 4:07pm

The current M3 is great for turning into a racecar, but also very good at being the ultimate poser machine. The new DTM Champion Edition is cool though, because it was made to celebrate a racecar, and the brand's success in October, when the Canadian Bruno Spengler won the German Touring Car Championship for the… » 12/06/12 9:30am 12/06/12 9:30am
