BMW previews new M3

It won’t be unveiled until 2014, but BMW has previewed the look of its new M3 coupe successor with this – the 4 Series coupe M Performance line.

Unveiled at the 4 Series launch in Portugal, the new M Performance line boasts a more aggressive body kit, bigger wheels, more power and a revised interior.

A new model in the BMW line-up, the M4 will replace the existing M3 coupe when it goes on sale next year.

While not the fully-blown M4 we’ve been waiting for, the M pack does give us a glimpse as to what BMW’s new performance coupe will look like – including a deeper, more aggressive front splitter, flared wheels arches and carbonfibre design touches.

Power has been upped by 25kW/50Nm in the range topping 435i coupe, making maximum output at 250kW/450Nm.

BMW is tipped to unveil the new, even more powerful M4 as a concept at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show in January.
