These are the latest spy photos with the 2014 BMW M3 and they come from China where photographers managed to take a few pics with the interior.

We’ve seen the new M3 Sedan in plenty spy pics but these are the first photos providing a better view of the interior cabin which will be seen in the M4 Coupe as well. Right from the start we notice the leather-wrapped sport seats with an “M” emblem below the headrest, as well as an M double-clutch seven-speed gearbox with launch control. There's also a floating LCD screen installed on top of the dashboard which will provide iDrive functions, while an M head-up display will also be available.

BMW has already confirmed the M3 / M4 duo will be powered by an all-new TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine producing approximately 430 HP (316 kW) at 7,500 rpm and more than 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. The M3 will tip the scales at less than 3,306 lbs (1,500 kg) and will be 25 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing model.

Both cars will be publicly revealed in January at 2014 NAIAS in Detroit.
