WHAT’S IN THE BOX
Keypiece Preservation Capsule
Designed in California, USA
It all starts with the infamous box fender. A quintessentially German shape stemming from the right blend of ego and bravery. Claus Luthe led design at BMW during a time when the Mercedes W126 ruled. The challenge to rejuvenate the ultimate driving machine resulted in the E30 series.
With its iconic wedge shape, angular graphics, and chiseled form, Luthe himself felt the design could be too radical for the time. With board-approval, the design kicked off an aesthetic that would become an archetype of the 80s. The E30 M3, meant only to be a 5000 unit homologation for Group A DTM racing only served to exaggerated the form. The aesthetic was so successful that you could say the Mercedes 190E Cosworth followed suit with a slightly different flavor, of course.
