Its hard to argue with the E30 in first place. The car was a true homologation special. No M car since the E30 has been developed specifically for competition purposes. Not even the CSL can claim this distinction.
I cannot understand the M5 being included in the top 3 over the E92. By what criteria is the M5 better? (Perhaps an Evo editor owns an E39?)
