BMW is putting the motor into the Motor City as they have unveiled the 2014 M3 at the North American International Auto Show.

Set to go on sale later this year, the M3 has an aggressive exterior with modified bumpers, revised side skirts and ventilated front fenders. The sedan has also been equipped with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic roof, a sport-tuned suspension, an Active M Differential and an electronic power steering system with three different modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport+.

Power is provided by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 431 HP (317 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.1 seconds with the optional seven-speed M double-clutch transmission. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) but the M Driver's Package increases that number to 280 km/h (174 mph).
