A mystery BMW model appeared at the BMW Museum a bit over a month ago, shrouded under a big blue tarp. It’s yet to be positively identified, but could this possibly be the next generation F80 M3 sedan or F82 M4 coupe?

This is likely the very first E30 M3 Touring that you’ve ever seen, and for good reason – BMW never made such a model. But where BMW stops, the BMW enthusiast (or shop) sometimes picks up.
This custom built E30 M3 touring started its life as a E30 318i touring. The builder, a New Jersey custom fabrication shop, used a totaled E30 M3 coupe as the donor for many body parts, while a E36 M3 provided the heart for the custom M3 touring – BMW’s 282HP … CONTINUED

This is a project that many M3POST members have been following for quite some while now. It’s the build process and results for a low compression option for the M3 S65 engine which allows it to run a 10:1 compression ratio (compared to factory 12:1 ratio). And why is that a good thing? The lower compression ratio allows the use of higher boost (via supercharger) safely on pump fuel.
