Rossi bags the Z4M, M3 in July?

Valentino Rossi took home a Z4M Coupe today for being the quickest rider in the test sessions for this year's MotoGP. On a podium next to the Z4M stood the prize for the 07 season, which will be awarded in July. None other than the new M3, for obvious reasons covered. The front air dam looks very similar if not identical to the one schemed by Alpine; it was semi-visible due to the cover fitting a little small on the car! Does this mean Europe will see the beast this Summer, if not fall at the latest?

P.S. If anyone can find a pic...

Smile M3 covered in the background

Here is the video with the covered M3 in the background.

Wishing for a strong wind to blow off the cover and push Rossi aside.

Who says its an M3? And it actually occurred last week. And I've not seen/heard any mention of "another" M car award. There would normally be one at end-of-season, but not til Nov 2007.

Doesn't look like an M3 wheel anyway (front drivers)...

i was going on the fact that it's "the new m car" [eurosport].
obviously i'd agree on the wheels, but seen as it must be an m car, because they wouldn't give a non-m for the m award; also you must admit the lines look pretty m3...

It's probably just a 335i under a sheet, to provide the effect. Then at the end of the season, the winner will get an M3.

Yes, its just for effect. There is no need for BMW to risk a picture leak by having a covered up car somewhere.

Only one day till we see what m power is in store.
