E21 Production Models


The 323i marked the pinnacle of E21 production power. Its 143 bhp left nothing to be desired to the average customer. The silky sound coming from the dual exhaust system carried the driver in 9.5 seconds to 100 km/h and firmly established a place among high-speed cars on the left lane. Customers inclined to speeding their E21 on the road who felt this was still not enough could always turn to one of several tuners.
