BMW Group Middle East Announces M3 Sedan

It seems everyone but BMWUSA has announcements about the new M3. This is utterly ridiculous.

UAE. BMW Group Middle East announced the highly-anticipated BMW M3 Sedan will arrive in the region in April 2008, while attendees at the 9th International Middle East Motor Show were given a sneak preview of the M3 Coupé.

“With its superior power, performance and dynamism, the new BMW M3 ensures truly unique sheer driving pleasure of the highest calibre,” said Mr. Phil Horton, Managing Director, BMW Group Middle East.

“The new BMW M3 is destined to take pole position with aficionados when it arrives in the region. The new, 309 kW/420 hp V8 power unit offers enormous muscle and performance and the aesthetic design so typical of the BMW M spells out its supremacy on the racetrack.”

The new BMW M3 sets the foundation for continuing an exceptional career in motorsport. Every enthusiast sharing the passion for supreme performance can rest assured this model is able to master even the greatest challenge on and off the race track.

The all-new “heart” of the latest BMW M3 is the eight-cylinder power unit which, through its high-speed engine concept alone, comes with all the DNA of the current Formula 1 engine raced by the BMW Sauber F1 Team.

Applying this high-speed concept characteristic of all BMW M power units, the new V8 develops maximum output of 309 kW/420 hp from engine capacity of precisely 3,999 cc. Further equally impressive factors are the engine’s peak torque of 400 Newton-metres as well as maximum engine speed of 8, 400 rpm.

Truly unprecedented, the thrust and pulling force generated through this unique potential conveys the supreme power of the engine through the variable M differential lock to the rear wheels.

Acceleration to 100 km/h comes in just 4.8 seconds, and the car continues this exceptional performance with fascinating consistency all the way to its top speed of 250 km/h, where the engine electronics set an artificial limit to the ongoing power and performance of the new BMW M3.
