BMW 635 CSi

After the “Deutsche Rennsportmeisterschaft” changed its reglement to focus on Group C sports cars from 1982 on, Schnitzer Motorsport decided to enter the revived European Touring Car Championship in 1983. Suprisingly to many experts, Schnitzer announced to race with BMW’s big coupe, the 635 CSi, which was built according to Group A touring car regulations. The 3.5-liter inline six-cylinder engine of the new race car produced approximately 285 hp at a vehicle weight of 1185kg. Thanks to the newly acquired status as the official BMW development team, Schnitzer Motorsport presented one of its cars in an iconic BMW factory livery. From the very beginning, the Bavarian team did for what they have been known from the past – aiming for any victory. Two championship titles in the European Touring Car Championship, two victories at  Spa-Francorchamps 24-hours race and a win in Macau laid the foundation for the road to the most successful BMW motorsport team of the coming decades.

BMW M3 E30 DTM

The touring car legend. When introducing the new much smaller BMW M3 many people first had big doubts, if the concept of the new car is good enough to continue the success story of the BMW 635 CSI. But any doubts have proven to be wrong. From the very first season, Schnitzer Motorsport started to collect countless victories with the BMW M3 E30, consequently playing a major role in the BMW M3 E30 eventually becoming the most successful touring car ever: World Touring Car Champion, European Touring Car Champion, Italian Touring Car Champion and DTM Champion are just a few of many important titles  Schnitzer Motorsport achieved with the BMW M3 E30. Built to Group A regulations, from 1987 to 1989 the BMW M3 was powered by a 2.3l 4-cylinder engine with up to 320hp before the 2.5l engine was introduced in 1990. A weight of 980kg and more than 350HP at up to nearly 10,000 revolutions per minute are the technical key specs of the latest version from 1992.
After a remarkable Schnitzer 1-2-3 in Macau at the end of 1992, the M3 E30 was retired.

BMW E36 STW

After the DTM decided to go for the new high-tech Class 1 regulations in 1993, BMW Motorsport switched its focus in touring car racing to the vehicles of the Class 2 regulations. As the regulation didn’t allow to use widebody kits, the Class 2 didn’t look like a proper racing car at first glance. But when taking a closer look, the BMW E36 STW unveileid best engineering performance. Starting with the BMW 318i (engine type S14/7 with approx. 275hp) and from 1995 with the BMW 320i model (engine type S42 with approx. 300hp), BMW was the benchmark in touring car racing from 1993 to 1998. Three titles in the German STW Championship and titles in the British Touring Car Championshop, Japanese Touring Car Championshop as well as Asia Pacific Championship show an impressive record. Compared to its predecessor, the BMW M3 E30, the strength of the Super Touring cars is the perfect handling and high corner-speed. A sequential 6-speed transmission, approx. 1050kg weight, no ABS, no power steering and only 210mm wide 19-inch tires, but up to 6 degrees of camber and a chassis technology inspired by formula cars, form the technical key data.
