BMW M Coupe
Just when we were starting to think the Germans were irredeemably straight, they go and create an unhinged shrunken shooting brake with M underpinnings. It may have been an after-hours project, but wow, just wow. Small, punchy and beautifully boisterous.
Years produced: 1998–2002
Country of origin: Germany
Fun fact: The Coupe was a whopping 2.7 times stiffer than the Roadster
