The BMW 3 Series – the epitome of the compact executive car – has long become a household name. But this is where it all started, over 40 years ago: In 1975, BMW presented the successor to its 02 series, internally called E21, originally with three 4-cylinder models, named 316, 318 and 320 according to their respective engine capacity of 1.6, 1.8 or 2.0 litres. While the first two had single round headlights, the more expensive model could be distinguished by its dual headlights. In 1977, a new 6-cylinder engine, the M20, was introduced, a carburetted version for the 320/6 and a fuel-injected one for the top of the range, the 323i, which produced 105 kW (141 hp) and enabled a top speed of 200 km/h. It was this engine which helped to further cement BMW’s outstanding reputation for sporty sedans.
All BMW E21 were two-door sedans, there were no four-door or station wagon variants like with later 3 series models.
Over 1.3 million units were built of the E21 until 1982, when the 2nd generation of the 3 series, the E30, was ready to replace them.
