What European Touring Car Legend would you buy?

You can pick one and only one, which would it be? A 1987 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth, a 1990 BMW E30 M3 Sport Evolution or a 1992 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II? Each one has their special treats and classic look, but what one would you truly appreciate in your garage? Here are some stats below:

The BMW is a true investment piece, with their values only increasing each year and on top of that you get the chance to purchase number 139 of only 600 BMW E30 M3 Sport Evolutions ever produced.

The Mercedes-Benz is the final form of the humble 190 series. With its aggressive aero kit and you find a pristine one with only 34k miles, as well as number 167 of 502 produced.

Finally, the Ford that is number 38 of 500 and has just over 10,000 miles.

What would you take home?

I'd decide after driving them. They're all cool! The beemer probably worth the most?

From an appearance perspective, the BMW has probably aged the most gracefully. Dynamically, they could all probably be shamed by the latest Honda Accord...

I'd roll the Benz, after taking a Sawzall to the wing, as I won't be drifting in Japan.

I'll take the Cosy hands down. Had a 2.3-16 for 27 yrs. I miss the crap out of that car. Yea, it's a bit ricey but I have a history with it. It's different and it stands out... I like that. I always turned a head or two driving mine. Even the kids I work with (20's) all liked it. I imagine driving the 2.5 would even be more fun.
