2011 BMW M3 To Get Start/Stop Technology, Enthusiasts Groan Collectively


The 2011 BMW M3 will get Start/Stop technology in a bid to cut down on emissions and fuel consumption. Since most M3s will realistically sit in bumper to bumper traffic, this seems like a fairly astute move by BMW, even if armchair enthusiasts will collectively groan at the thought of their precious sports car being saddled with hybrid technology.

According to BMW, "…feature developed from BMW's EfficientDynamics strategy that will shut down the engine under certain conditions when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. The benefit of this technology is reduced fuel consumption and the function can be switched on/off via a button located next to the Start/Stop button."

We're not really sure what to make of this new feature, but we'd more than willing to test drive a new 2011 M3 and find out.
