The latest generation BMW M3 ups the ante in a number of regards. It's quicker, cleverer, better looking, offers better value and more equipment. You even get the option of a manual gearbox. Offered solely in saloon guise (for the coupe version you'll need the M4 model), it even returns to the classic straight-six engine configuration. An there's an uprated 'Competition Pack' version with even more power. What's not to like? Buyers have two options. Either to go for the standard 431bhp model. Or to choose this car with the 'Competition Package' option, which increases power to 450bhp. In both cases, you get the same twin turbo 3.0-litre straight-six that does its best work from just 1,800rpm, offering a huge advantage in real world driveability thanks to the massive 550Nm torque figure - an increase in torque of 40% over the old M3 Coupe model. There's a choice of a manual gearshift )thank goodness) or a dual-clutch paddleshift auto transmission; with the latter installed, the sprint to 62mph takes just 4.1 seconds - or 4.0 seconds with the 'Competition Package' model.Watch Video »
