From BMW:
Driving enthusiasts have passionately anticipated the arrival of the new M3 coupe like no other BMW. They have 13 years of uncompromising M3 performance to whet their appetite. Around the world, automotive journalists bestowed accolades and awards, such as "Car of the Year" and "Best Handling Car," on its successor. Now the new M3 is reality-the fastest and most powerful M3 ever built.
At its heart, an M-designed 3.2-liter, twin-cam, 24-valve, naturally aspirated, six-cylinder engine producing a pulse-pounding 330 horsepower* and road-conquering 255 foot-pounds of torque.* Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, that's enough motivation to launch the new M3 coupe from standstill to 60 miles per hour in merely 5.2 seconds.** Of course, there's superb M handling and braking to match.

Looks don't deceive. Aluminum hood with a "power dome"...flared fenders...aggressive front bumper...front fender vent gills, reminiscent of legendary BMWs...the new M3's shape signals its capabilities. The cabin is a blend of serious driving essentials and tasteful luxury.

The new M3. It's already a legend. At your local BMW center late this year.
