First photos of the production version

The WCF team have barely been able to contain our excitemtent since we finally got to see the M3 Concept in Geneva, and since then we have learned it will be powered by a mouth watering 420 horsepower 4.0l V8 engine - the first ever V8 in an M3. Now photos of the production version have been leaked and the boys over at autoweek have the scoop. As we can see there is very little difference between the production and concept versions (if any), and is set to be launched as a 2008 model with its debut likely to be at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
