The thing I am most struck by is how crappy a McLaren F1 engine's specs are by today's big money high power standards.

It's not that shocking, a new Nissan Altima has more HP than a US E36 M3.

There is probably an e46 M3 sedan Prototype as well. BMW probably just hasnít acknowledged itís existence. Think about it, they held off on doing an e46 M3 sedan (forgot the reasons), yet they made a prototype e46 M3 wagon?

Did someone say E46 M3 wagon?

You need made-in-Japan lock picks to leave no trace. Take me too!

In of the issues of the British BMW Car magazine from the late '90 there were a few pics of white M3 Limo mule car with lots of black panels and tape on it, quad exhaust and big brake kit etc. Definitely an early 4-door M3 prototype. The question only is why did stop the development and didn't release it
