EVO takes a look at four greats from a soon-to-be old school group of cars. They will be considered ‘old school’ not just because of their age, but because of new technology and the changing demands on performance cars.

Next, an OEM European bumper and the IND Sport Evo lip were added … CONTINUED
BMW Motorsport returned to the DTM in 2012 after almost 20 years away, and the results in its comeback year exceeded all expectations. Canadian driver Bruno Spengler won the drivers’ title, BMW Team Schnitzer finished in top spot in the team standings, and BMW claimed the manufacturers’ honours.
