New M3 Cabrio: Official Pics



: Thanks to the premature leak of M3 Convertible images earlier this week BMW was forced to released full details of the svelte muscle car even though itís not due to make its debut until Genevaís Motor Show in March. This is the third and latest body version of the new M3 after the Coupe and Sedan but itís also the slowest model in the range because of the added weight of its electro-hydraulically operated retractable hardtop.

All of the performance traits of the Coupe and Sedan carry over to the Convertible including the aluminium engine lid with striking powerdome, aggressive front end with large air intakes, powerfully flared wheel arches as well as the lower waistline and unique rear end.

Powering the new droptop is BMW Mís brand-new V8 displacing 4.0L, developing maximum output of 309 kW/420 hp, maximum torque of 400Nm/295 lb-ft at 3,900 rpm, and an maximum engine speed 8,400 rpm. This time, however, itís available with a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission dubbed the M DKG.

First drives of the new car arenít scheduled until after its Geneva launch, so weíll have to wait until then to see the performance numbers of the new M DKG.
