If you really meant an E36 320 sedan with M engine and bodykit, then no I don't think they made such car. They never sold the 320 here. Plus, the 320 had a 4-banger whereas all E36 M engines were 6-cylinder. They did sell a 325is M-tech in 94, which was a limited edition and had M bodykit. But it was a coupe and wasn't M-powered.

But I agree, E36 is cool.

hmm i dunno bout that, i've had that car while i was in indonesia..bmw in asia is rather different from the u.s, as far as i know off..they have smaller engines and outputs...for eg. e90 in indonesia, 325i is top of the line..if u want 330i, u've to order it from bmw..it'll come straight from germany..whereas for the 325i and below, its assembled locally if i'm not wrong
330i in singapore costs about $200,000
325i in indonesia costs close to US $50,000 (2500cc, dunno bout the hp i'm assuming its the same)
anyways at least we both agree that e36 is cool!! oh so is the 8-series, that car along with e36 turned me into a bmw fan lol

aapradi: the one in Indonesia was a branding/marketing exercise...you're talking about the 320i local edition with the M package (I believe body kit and wheel, interior trim/accents, colors but engine was stock 320i 6cyl but it was labelled M-something or rather) ...can't remember if it had vanos, I remember the term being heavily used in their promotions/marketing, it could've been the e46 though)...I believe that was the first 6cyl e36 to be locally assembled (CKD)...a loooong time again, eh

All of the original M cars (M1, E28 M5, E24 M6, and E30 M3) are my favorites. Classic styling with hand built engines.

The McLaren Group has a consistent record of success within a very competitive environment. Through the application of the principles of total commitment, quality and excellence, the McLaren Group has established itself at the forefront of British engineering and technology. Based in Woking, UK, the McLaren Group embraces a collection of niche, hi-tech companies each maximising the benefits of the global name and reputation that McLaren has established in the cutting edge technology sport of Formula One. The Group has evolved considerably over the years and is now comprised of eight companies operating in a range of diverse, yet related, areas: McLaren Racing (Formula One); McLaren Cars (high performance road cars); McLaren Electronic Systems (automotive electronic systems); McLaren Marketing (marketing services); McLaren Composites (advanced composite structures); Absolute Taste (haute cuisine); and Lydden Circuit (race track) and the latest company McLaren Applied Technologies.

The Group's roots lie in the association between the TAG (Techniques d'Avant Garde) Group and McLaren, which originated in 1981 when McLaren Team Principal Ron Dennis and TAG's Mansour Ojjeh met and became friends. Two years later, TAG financed the introduction of a turbo-charged grand prix engine - built by Porsche to McLaren's specifications. The engine made its debut that year, and the following season McLaren won the Constructors' World Championship with Niki Lauda becoming Drivers' World Champion - the first two of 16 World Championship titles the partnership has secured to date.

In January 2000, DaimlerChrysler - parent company of Mercedes-Benz, which supplies engines to Team McLaren Mercedes - acquired a 40 per cent interest in the McLaren Group. Ron Dennis and the TAG Group S.A., who became a major shareholder in 1985, continue to have operational management control, each owning of 30 per cent of the Group. This followed a decision by DaimlerChrysler and McLaren Cars Limited to jointly develop and produce the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren super sports car, which is being manufactured at the McLaren Technology Centre, and was launched at the 2003 Frankfurt Motorshow.

The BMW powered, British-built F1 from McLaren International, Ltd, is arguably the fastest and most expensive production car ever made.

The specially commissioned BMW engine allows the driver to be centrally situated in the cockpit, affording a more equal weight distribution. With it's 627 normally aspirated horses pouring through a bespoke six-speed transaxle gearbox, the ultra-light F1 leaps from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of a few scant seconds.

The McLaren F1 holds several records, including the highest top speed (240.1 mph) and the fastest lap speed on a UK circuit (195.3 mph).

In 1995, McLaren debuted the F1 GTR at the Le Mans endurance race. The McLaren took first place, taking it's place in history as doing so on it's first race. In addition to taking the checkered flag, the F1 GTR also took 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th places in that race.

To celebrate this extraordinary achievement, McLaren produced five F1 LMs, one for each of the F1 GTRs that finished the 1995 Le Mans race, with the goal being that the LM was a 1995 F1 GTR modified as little as possible to make it a street legal supercar. Consequently the F1 LM sported a more powerful 680 bhp V12, and now owns the 0-100-0 mph world record for a production car by ripping through the tach in a gut wrenching 11.5 seconds while travelling a distance of only 828.4 feet!

The final version of the F1 production car was the F1 GT. It was designed to attain downforce equal to that of the LM, but to do so with lower drag. Thus, the front bodywork was extended and the rear deck was redesigned to create a stunning, yet functional, new look.

Several racing versions of the McLaren were produced, including the highly successful 1995 F1 GTR, the 1996 F1 GTR, and the 1997 F1 GTR.

The 95 GTR was originally developed for shorter, 4 hour Global GT Endurance series races in response to demand from customers who wanted to race their own modifications of the standard production F1. However demand quickly came about to make it into a 24 hour car to run in the Le Mans endurance race. In 1995 McLaren became the first manufacturer ever to sweep the board, scoring four of the top five places, upon its Le Mans debut.

In 1996 McLaren revised the 1995 GTR to meet new BPR GT series regulations, capping the engine power output to 600 bhp. This allowed the designers to shed 100kg from the car, making it as light as the 1,000kg minimum weight limit would allow. McLaren also developed an upgrade for 95 GTRs to move them to 96 GTRs in spite of the fact that the 96 model was 70% new components. New features included a larger rear wing for markedly improved downforce.

In 1997 the GTR was once again revised to meet new racing regulations, this time from the FIA GT Series and the Le Mans 24 hour race. The modifications focused on engine refinement, the inclusion of an all new sequential transmission, extensive aerodynamic changes, and substantial weight reduction. The chassis and power train were the prime candidates for weight reduction along with small weight improvements made throughout the car. In 1995 the F1 GTR weighed 1,100kg. The 96 model reduced its weight to 1,000kg, and in 1997 the GTR was able to further reduce its curb weight to a mere 915kg.
