    If you liked BMW’s limited production run of Frozen Gray M3 Coupes, chances are you’ll love its new special edition 2011 M3 Coupe, done up in what BMW calls “Frozen Black.” As with the Frozen Gray coupes, BMW is only building a limited quantity, but this time it's reduced production to just twenty units. And yes, this one's designed for the U.S. The Frozen Black paint carries a deep metallic luster, which the Bavarian automaker claims “accentuates the athletic lines of the legendary M3.” As with the limited-edition Frozen Gray M3s, each will come well...

    Spy Shots: BMW M3 Pickup--Not What You Think

    A couple of days ago the Interwebs broke out in song over a vehicle spotted at the Nurburgring: a pickup version of the BMW M3.

    BMW Teases U.S. Market Limited Edition Model

    BMW already has its new 335is Coupe and Convertible models exclusive to the U.S. market but it looks like there’s at least one more 3-Series based limited edition model heading our way.

    IND Distribution presents the first Dakar Yellow E92 M3 in North America

    Though it's often overshadowed by the fantastic E30, the E36 M3 has become a favorite of aficionados, and no color showed off that M3's pavement prowess as well as the brilliant Dakar Yellow. Now IND Distribution has taken that familiar color and laid it over the newest M3, and it's sure to stir a...

    New company aims to make supercar clubs affordable

    The idea of pooling resources to get access to a wide range of the most exotic four-wheeled machinery available isn't new, though it is still rather exclusive. Groups like P1 International in the UK and The Supercar Club in Australia have built the genre over the past few years, while newcomers...

  • BMW M3 Coupe

    BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer recently revealed plans to phase out diesel V8 engines across the board, but as drastic as this sounds it could be just the tip of the iceberg for the carmaker’s future plans to shakeup its powertrain lineup. BMW’s hallowed M division could also be affected by the new wave of environmental consciousness sweeping carmakers across the world, the end result being smaller engines and turbochargers in future performance models. Speaking with MotorTrend, high-ranking BMW sources, including M division CEO Ludwig Willisch, revealed that the 4.0L and 5.0L high-rev...

    BMW’s M division sets second-best sales year on record

    BMW’s M division has tallied a record year of sales, topping 24,000 units between January and December 2008. Strong sales of the M3 and its new Cabrio and Sedan variants are the driving force behind the record feat, accounting for over 18,000 of the M-cars sold. In August of last year, BMW...

    G-Power modified BMW M3 cranks out 635hp

    A high-revving, sweet-sounding V8 is a marvelous thing, and BMW's 4.0L V8 in the M3 is a capital example. The tuners at G-Power weren't satisfied with the factory-supplied 414hp (309kW), and decided to strap on a supercharger and boost output to a tire-vaporizing 635hp (473kW). About what you'd...

    Zwickenpflug reveals 445hp BMW M3 'Leather Edition'

    Though BMW's latest 3-series treatment is something of a love-it-or-hate-it design, the gang at Zwickenpflug are decidedly in the 'love it' camp, leaving their customized car's exterior almost completely untouched. Inside, there's a score of changes, and the engine even gets some tweaks to boost...

    Vorsteiner mods the E92 BMW M3 with CSL techniques

    While German tuners generally tend to stick with a single marque, tinkering with the likes of BMWs, Audis, Mercedes or Porsches to the exclusion of others, American tuner Vorsteiner works with all three marques, and its latest creation has tuners from around the world sitting up and taking notice...

  • ACS3 Sport BMW M3 Cabrio by AC Schnitzer

    Despite its M3 moniker, the BMW M3 Cabrio isn't the pure-performance beast its hard-top brother is. This is mostly due to the chassis stiffness disadvantage spawn from its roofless design as well as the necessary weight gain from the added reinforcements that attempts to overcome this. Still an impressive machine, it's somewhat less heretical to perform a purely aesthetic conversion to the more style-oriented drop-top as AC Schnitzer has done with its rebranded ACS3 Sport Cabrio. The engine is untouched, but with 420hp (309kW) it's hard to complain. Instead, the German tuner has focused on...

    Already a fully-capable road and track machine, the BMW M3 Coupe isn't precisely in need of tuning - or so you'd think. Once Hartge got its hands on it, however, it decided the new car could use some massaging, and has done its best to preserve what's great about the M3 Coupe while adding its own...

  • Video: Official BMW M3 Convertible

    To some, the heavier and less rigid Convertible version of the potent M3 may be a poser’s car, but who really cares when it looks this good. Sure, the complicated mechanism for the folding hardtop weighs around 200kg and yes it does severely limit trunk space when its down, but surely the thumping 420hp (309kW) V8 engine and new seven-speed dual clutch gearbox makes up for these. Take a look at the new videos of the car after the jump and we’ll bet you’ll want one too. You can also read all the details and see a high-res gallery in our previous story.

    The BMW M3 already has a lot going for it, both in terms of looks and performance. So much, in fact, that it’s a hard to imagine a better balance between raw track-bound performance and street-going civility. But that hasn’t stopped the German tuners at AC Schnitzer from trying their...

    The four-door M3 has a good chance of being more popular than its coupe sibling despite BMW deeming it unworthy to produce during the last generation. This latest video shows that the new sedan is every bit as stylish as the coupe and the fact that it’s more practical could just give it the...
