PICS: The 2009 BMW M3 Coupe is coming

BMW has revealed the production version of the 2008/2009 M3 coupe. The unveiling comes only weeks after the automaker revealed the M3 Concept
at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. Under the hood, you get a ridiculously powerful V8 engine, supported by a tuned suspension, six-speed manual transmission, a carbon fiber roof, and yes, that signature M3 badge on the backside. The aforementioned V8 brings two more cylinders than its predecessor, but it is actually lighter. This powerplant pumps out 420hp and 295 lbs-ft of torque from its 4.0 liters of displacement. The new BMW M3, which will launch in North America in mid-2008 as a 2009 model, will compete directly against the Lexus IS-F, Audi RS5, and Mercedes CLK63 AMG. They expect to create sedan and convertible versions later in 2008. View the attachments for this post at: 00551#9500551
