There is Only One “God’s Chariot”

There is Only One “God’s Chariot”


God’s Chariot. This is a nickname that has been tossed around for years at multiple lines of BMW and even more specifically to the E30 chassis but only one truly holds this name – The BMW E30 M3. Built to compete with Mercedes-Benz in the late 80’s, the E30 M3 varied more from its base model brother than any other model has since the E30. Styling that is legendary and performance that is track proven, the E30 M3 stands as a legend in the BMW line.


Mishel Keshishian is the owner of this simply pristine 1989 BMW M3 which happens to be the same model he had back in his high school days instilling a passion for BMWs that lives on today. Mishel has made modifications throughout the chassis but has always kept true to the original styling that BMW created years ago.


Patroni Films had the chance to catch Mishel’s beautiful example of a BMW E30 M3 in front of his lens so sit back and enjoy the one and only God’s Chariot.
