Picture Request - vintage e36 article or poster
 
Hi All -

There was an article back in the 90s. Or maybe it was just a poster. I don't know if it was tied to the famous Car and Driver handling comarison article in Sept. of 1997 or not. I don't think so, because that article was 8 or 9 cars in the comparison.

The picture I am thinking of is a line of cars (I think all in red) spread around the bank of a race track and I believe a silver M3 at the front. I believe the caption on the photo went something like:

The best handling car in the world and 10 that should be

Ya, pretty sure that was the C/D test, and I think it was a BMW poster. Good luck finding it, please let me know if you do!

I found a photo of the poster, but with a little more research, I was able to find that while it wasn't a picture directly tied to the article in the Sept., 1997 Car and Driver, it was a poster done by BMW as a result of the article.

It was ultimately a BMW poster. I had one hanging in my office. Wish I had saved that plus all of the other memorabilia that ultimately got tossed over the years.

Where did you find it? Is there a version out there with high enough resolution to make a 16x20 poster out of? (or at least a nice 8x10 photo)
