Gerhard Richter is reading our minds: How can the new, fourth-generation BMW M3 get close to matching the outgoing model? BMW’s M division boss has lived and breathed this car for three years and knows it better than anyone. He’s convinced it’s a step forward.

What is it?
If you’ve never heard of the BMW M3 then, frankly, you’ve clicked on the wrong website. If you have, you’ll know all about the car that’s done as much for BMW’s image over the past 20 years as all the rest of them put together (well, almost). And now there’s a brand-new version, the fourth all-new model since the original of 1986.

This is it. The car the BMW faithful have been waiting for. The 4.0-liter V-8 up front barks as the tach needle zings around the dial -- 6000, 7000, 8000 rpm. I grab fourth just before the 8400 rpm redline -- no, that's not a typo -- and turn into the fast right-hander.

The new BMW M3 is a hybrid, albeit a very mild one. Its alternator, which supplies all the car's electrical needs, is driven by the engine only when the accelerator is lifted and the engine is being turned by the car's momentum.

What’s that beneath the power-bulging aluminium bonnet of the new M3, a V8? BMW’s four-seat super-coupé is potentially now closer to the performance of supercars than ever, and far removed from the four-pot original.

Opinions are like arses; everyone has one. But sometimes it sounds like the former is coming out of the latter. This is especially true in the case of reviewing a car (a fairly inexact science at the best of times), in particular when a new model has been hyped up so much that expectations are incredibly high. The latest BMW M3 falls into this category.

A cheeky power bulge on the bonnet has two little vents each side and it’s clear M has been in the gym. It looks like Superman rather than Clark Kent 3: flared arches, pimped sills, power bumpers and those four fat exhausts punctuated by typically BMW M wheels, among other touches like those neat door mirrors and stylish M-gills on its flanks. It all makes it quite clear what this is. Beware…

The birth of a new M car from BMW used to be something that was as rare as an honest politician. However the past few years have seen a flurry of new models from BMW's "Motorsport" division. M5, M6 and Z4M Coupé and Roadster have all been released as new cars over the past three years. But for many a diehard BMW fan, there is only one M car and that is the M3.

Excerpt:
Quote:
BMW has built two cars into one - a carefully progressive one and a balls-out racer with the electric, edgy personality usually found in borderline types. That split personality can be dialed out, or in, when you want. But long ago the M3 exceeded most drivers' talents. Is it better to go one way or the other, so long as you choose? If I had to, I'd opt for the more relaxed M3, with all the GT power I needed and none of the tense maneuvering brought on by some of the options.

With V-8 competitors like the upcoming 451-hp Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and 400-plus-hp Lexus IS-F, and the 420-hp Audi RS 4, we’re leading up to one heck of a showdown—one that, based on our drive, the M3 has a very strong chance of winning.
