The all-new 3 Series Coupe is hitting the roads in September and when it does, be prepared for a re-sculpted look, a twin-turbo engine and, perhaps the biggest news of all, all-wheel drive.
Re-sculpted, inside and out.
Itís rare to find such a sporty machine that also carries its own when it comes to refinement. But with the 3 Series Coupe, absolutely nothing has been compromised.
Thereís the aggressive, muscular hood. Flowing signature lines along the profile. Standard Xenon Adaptive Lights. And if you can draw yourself away from the exterior long enough, youíll notice exquisite changes to the interior as well. New ambient interior lighting. New colors for the leather upholstery. Beautiful pearl gloss accents throughout. And a new comfort feature that provides easier access to the seatbelt.
Then thereís the power Ė 300 horses worth of twin-turbo power.
Just like any other BMW, the all-new 3 Series Coupe is outfitted to provide an exhilarating drive. Under the hood of the 335i Coupe is an inline 6-cylinder engine with high precision injection and twin-turbo chargers, giving you 300 horses of heart-pounding power and class-leading 300 ft. lbs. of torque.
The 328i and 328xi Coupes are just as impressive, featuring a more powerful and fuel efficient, inline 6-cylinder engine with Valvetronic. This new engine produces 230 horsepower and 200 ft. lbs. of torque. But because of its inline orientation of cylinders there are fewer vibrations, which means a smoother ride for you.
Itís history in the making.
With the launch of the all-new 3 Series Coupe comes a very big first. Itís the first time weíre offering a coupe with xDrive, BMWís intelligent all-wheel drive system.
When youíre on smooth, dry roads, xDrive gives you a sporty, rear-wheel drive feel. But as soon as you hit a snow-covered road, slippery conditions, or an uphill curve, it automatically sends more torque to whichever axle has more traction, resulting in optimal stability and performance.
Add to that the driving dynamics intrinsic to a 3 Series Coupe, and thereís no straightaway, no hill, no windy country road, you canít conquer.
it depends... there are deffinently some hot versions and not so hot versions of everybody style... its all at taste... i personally like the way the new bimmers look and wouldnt mind haveing one at all... im interested to see what kind of body mods people come up with for these cars...
The new M3 is all over BMWCar magazine this month (http://www.bmwcarmagazine.com/latest-issue.htm) - it's gonna use a 4.0L V8 which would develop 400bhp in a shorter block than the previous M3 straight-six. It looks amazing from the side.
