With the amount of testing BMW is doing on the next-generation M3, we’ve got no doubt it’ll be a truly epic car. Prototype test mules have been running around for almost a year now, and there’s still apparently almost a year to go before the production version hits the streets. BMW is expected to launch the V8-powered sports car at the Paris Motor Show next year. Also caught testing was the coupe variant in white, which looks very aggressive with the large alloy wheels.

A M3 convertible has always been on the cards despite selling only half as well as its coupe sibling. What’s new with the next M3 is that BMW will offer it in sedan and touring models to expand the range. We can’t wait.
