E30 M3 – HA.3

550hp 2650 lbs

A fresh approach to the E30 M3 with a full nut and bolt restored body, custom interior, an S55 engine and transmission from an F80 M3, and a one of a kind chassis under the skin.

The HA.3 has a distinct reverence to DTM history in its outward appearance while hiding the best technology available within its body. We believe it to be the finest modified E30 M3 available today.
