BMW M3 Concept
At BMW M GmbH, engineers have persisted in continuing this success story with the presentation of the new BMW M3 Concept Car. BMW debuted the M3 Concept Car to the public at the 77th International Motor Show in Geneva in March of 2007. This concept car gave people a first glance of what the future of the BMW M3 may look like.
While the 2007 BMW M3 Concept Car is based on the dimensions and underlying form of the BMW 3 Series Coupe, virtually all body elements have been newly developed and designed from the ground up. Apart from the supporting vehicle structure, only the doors and the trunk lid were carried over from the series model. All other components were specifically engineered just for the M3 Concept Car. Unmistakable features that make the BMW M3 recognizable are the special trim at the front and rear, the power dome and two air intakes on the hood, the lateral side gills on the front side walls, the full carbon fiber roof panel, the side skirts and the exterior mirrors designed to be as aerodynamic as possible.
The M3 Concept Car offers a glimpse into what the future of BMW M3 interiors will be like, with lush leather on the seats and door panels, Alcantara lining the roof, and high-quality trim options. BMW M Engineers and Designers allow the customers to tailor the interior of the cars to meet his or her specifications. Many options will be available, from contrast stitching to custom color combinations.
Like the air intakes beside it, the power dome suggests the great potential that can be expected of a powerplant in the engine bay of a 2007 BMW M3. The M3 Concept Car features a high revving, 4.0-liter V8 engine that is anticipated for the serious car once it goes into production. Producing 414 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, the E92 M3 accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds and accelerates up to an electronically limited 155 mph.
