The BMW M3 is an ex-Corgi casting which replicates a E30-Generation BMW M3 with a racing bodykit, featuring flared-out fenders, rear spoiler and downforce tunnels on the rear quarters. When Mattel (Hot Wheels' parent company) acquired Mettoy (Corgi's parent company) in 1989, some former Corgi castings were branded as Hot Wheels and were used in Hot Wheels series in the 1990's. The BMW M3 was one of them and was only used twice before being discontinued.
