2008 BMW M3 Coupe Pricing Confirmed: £50,625

PRESS RELEASE:

Price announced for BMW M3 Coupé

Further details of the new BMW M3 Coupé, the most powerful road-going M3 the marque has ever produced, have been announced.

The latest BMW M3 Coupé is a technical tour de force. The 420hp V8-engined performance car is capable of zero to 62mph in 4.8 seconds, before going on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. But while engine capacity, cylinder count and output have increased compared to the previous M3's six-cylinder unit, engineers have managed to reduce powerplant weight and introduce elements of BMW's EfficientDynamics programme.

The use of lightweight engine components means the 3,999cc engine weighs 15kgs less than the previous 3.2-litre six-cylinder. Brake Energy Regeneration combines with an induction system featuring eight individual throttle butterflies and double-VANOS variable valve technology for the best performance. Such technology is why the BMW M3 posts a consumption figure of 22.8mpg on the combined cycle, an eight per cent improvement over the outgoing car.

The BMW M3 Coupé goes on sale in September 2007 priced at £50,625 OTR.

For Comparison

The rs4 is priced at £50,930, so one can assume that the M3 will probably cost around 74000 usd.

That site officially sucks since it can't even get the engine parameters correct.

Does anybody know the price of the E46 M3 in the UK? I know if you do a conversion it was substantially more than what we had to pay in America. They sell the Z4M in UK for £40 grand which is $80 grand here. But we pay what $50?
I still think the M3 will be about 55-60 grand in the States.

The price cannot based on the exchange rate alone. Most prices are set by costs and the margin of profits so I think the US price will be around 60k.

First of all, others have justifiably questioned the validity of the source of the UK M3 price. However, if this is true and the M3 is within a few hundred UK pounds of the RS4, that means it could easily be $70,000 USD OTR!

OTR meaning without any options or taxes.

If this happens, the M3 will be overpriced in the US by 15K for what the consumer gets. I predict BMW will miss its target sales of the M3 by as much as 70% if they price it at $70K without options.

If you can't afford a 100,000 dollar m3 then you don't deserve to drive one. Wait what am I saying... I can't drive one then :-(

Not Convinced

The article does not appear to reference any source. The price it mentions is a huge increase on the outgoing model as well as being higher than the indication given to me by my dealer.

(For the benefit of anyone from BMW UK reading this, it certainly makes the RS4 look all the more tempting...)

The official price has been out for a few weeks now, so this is NOT news. And it is genuine.
