After ending its involvement in Formula 1, BMW Motorsport GmbH redirected its energy towards touring car racing. This marked the birth of the BMW M3 in 1986. The compact two-door vehicle represents BMW's first consistent parallel development of a street car and a motorsport vehicle. The street variant, required to qualify as a touring car within a year in 5,000 units, was designed from the outset to be suitable for racing and tailored to the Group A regulations.

The result was a triumph for BMW. Right from the start, the snow-white racer with BMW Motorsport stripes achieved victories, trophies, and titles. In 1987, Italian driver Roberto Ravaglia won the Touring Car World Championship with it.
