The powerful M-version of BMW’s 3-series is scheduled for launch next
year only. The 3-series M will be available as coupe, convertible and four door.
For the first time power will come from a V8 powerplant. It is a 4.0 litre engine
delivering 415 HP, transmission is a seven speed SMG gearbox. A traditional
six-speed manual transmission will be offered as an option.

Four photos from this set are showing for the first time an M3 coupe prototype
from all angles on a test drive in Munich featuring the large air intakes at
the front end, wider fenders and four exhaust pipes. Another year later BMW
will launch an M3 convertible – and a four door version.


Two more photos are showing the 3-series coupe in full showroom trim (these
two photos were mildly computer generated). The 3-Series coupe will also get
power from BMW’s new six cylinder Bi turbo engine delivering 300 HP. Clearly
visible on the prototype: the corresponding two exhaust pipes.

Another two photos are of the upcoming new 3-series convertible with the top
down, the other photo is from our files and shows the retractable steel roof
as close up.
