BMW M3 Sedan
When thinking of a family car, the BMW M3 used to not fill the necessary requirements, such as having four doors. With the all-new BMW M3 Sedan, they aimed to create a wolf in wolf’s clothing. With all of the performance of the M3 Coupe and more room to bring friends and family, who can’t fall in love with this car?
As one draws closer to the 2008 BMW M3, the slight differences between the M3 and the normal 3-series become more noticeable. The power bulge on the hood contains the all-new V8 engine, while massive drilled brake rotors bring this beast to a halt in the blink of an eye. Other differences include huge air intakes for the brakes and engine where the fog lights would be on a normal 3-series. Most easily noticeable is the flared fenders and the hunkered-down profile, giving the M3 Sedan an aggressive stance. A quad-tipped exhaust at the center of the rear is another distinguishing feature of the 2008 BMW M3 Sedan, giving this monster its snarl.
Inside the lush cabin, BMW M engineers and designers offer customers the highest level of driving pleasure in a cabin that has been specifically tailored to the customer’s specifications. The cockpit is snug but roomier than the coupe, while the instrument clusters and controls are in typical BMW M3 styling. A large, leather-wrapped steering wheel featuring red and blue contrast stitching contains many of the controls that the driver will ever need. Three buttons to the right of the driver give them full control and customization over the suspension setup, throttle response, and traction control.
High compression is key to unlocking the power of the M3. A 4.0-liter V8 producing 414 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque rockets this M3 to 60 mph from a stop in just 4.7 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
