2008 BMW M3

2008 BMW M3 Meet the brand new 2008 BMW M3 – a force to be reckoned with. For it’s entire history, BMW’s super 3 series has been powered by a superb inline-6 cylinder engine. And no one has every complained – M3’s have always been quick cars.

But when it comes to performance, BMW isn’t one to sit around while it’s competitors take the lead. So they went back to the drawing board and came up with a new engine – a monster engine. The first V8 to ever make it’s way under the hood of an M3. This engine is a monster – 4.0 liters, DOHC, super lightweight ( it weighs 33 pounds less than the outgoing I6 ), 420 HP. From a stop, you’ll fly past sixty in under 5 seconds.

The interior is typical BMW – not bad, but certainly not exciting. The exterior is also typical BMW; some might even say boring. But say what you will about the styling ( though it is nice for a BMW ), the 2008 BMW M3 is a force to be reckoned with.

Motor Trend got their lucky little hands on the 2008 BMW M3 and had this to say – ‘It’s quick and precise; beautifully balanced and brilliantly responsive; deeply confident and inspiringly competent when you ask it the big questions. Yep, the new BMW M3 is everything the BMW faithful have been waiting for — and then some. But ironically, it’s the “then some” bit that might have a few of those faithful scratching their heads.’
