More and more revealing pictures of the upcoming BMW M3 are circulating on the web and in magazines. Expect the BMW M3 Coupe to make its official debut at the car show in Frankfurt in September 2007. But for those of you who like to enjoy the sun while driving some fast laps on the famous Nürburgring, the word is still patience.
The cabriolet version of the M3 is not going to be on the market until 2008. Powered by a V8 with 400-plus bhp derived from the V10 from big brother M5, this is going to be one fast hairdryer. Gearbox will be the SMG sequential transmission, but expect a double-clutch transmission later on. BMW is developing a version of the DSG and it will suit the M3 ideally. Just like on the normal 3-series this will be a 4-seater CC with a retractable roof.
The M3 version will stand out with its wider fenders, newly designed bumpers with bigger air intakes and of course the four pipes exhaust system.
The pictures show an M3 CC prototype during winter test in northern Sweden, almost without disguise, just the bumpers are covered. The powerdome on the hood is fake.
