The BMW M3 is 30 years old. Over that time we have seen five generations of the car.

The new generations look respectfully at the one that is the origin of them all, the BMW M3 E30.

The differences between the first-generation BMW M3 and the most recent one are quite clear to see.

Only the last three generations of the BMW M3 have a quad exhaust system in the rear end.

The three most recent generations of the BMW M3 follow the same aesthetic line which has evolved in a logical way over the years.

While the first generation of the BMW M3 looked like a racing car with approval for road use, the second was much more measured in terms of its design.

The rear end of the first BMW M3 ever made is probably one of the prettiest ever.

The first version of the BMW M3 E30 had a 195 PS engine, though later models were more potent.

Although the first BMW M3 ever made had a somewhat rudimentary interior, the 'M' logo was well visible in the centre of the steering wheel.

The second generation of the BMW M3

The second generation of the BMW M3 came out in 1992, with a much more sober appearance than its predecessor had.

The interior of the second generation of the BMW M3 followed the same sober line as the outside appearance of the car.

The leap, in mechanical terms, from the first generation of the M3 to the second was a big one. Its straight-six engine reached 321 PS in its later versions.

The third generation of the BMW M3, under the code E46, hit the market in 2000.

With the third generation of the BMW M3, the German firm went back to a more sporty look, but without reaching the extremes of the first.

The arrival of the third generation of the BMW M3 also meant an important step forward as far as the interior design was concerned.

One of the most recognisable features that gave the fourth generation of the BMW M3 its identity was the bulge on the hood.

The BMW M3 E92 came on to the market in 2007.

The interior of the BMW M3 E92 was maybe a little uninspiring.

The jewel in the crown of the fourth generation of the BMW M3 was under the hood. There, we find a four-litre V8 engine packing 420 PS of power.

The BMW M3's fifth generation has remained to define the sedán version of the German sports car that you see in the photo. The true heir of the M3's history is the current M4 Coupé.

In the fifth generation of the M3, BMW return to the straight-six engine, which is no obstacle to the new motor offering 11 PS more than the outgoing V8. In total, it packs 431 PS.

The interior of the current BMW M3 Sedan is a perfect mix of sobriety and sportiness.

The rear end of the BMW M3 shows plenty of muscle.

The BMW M3 Sedan and the BMW M4 Coupé are two of the German firm's strongest offerings right now where sports models are concerned.
