New BMW M3 Teaser Images Show Off Its Bright Green Paint
BMW will unveil the M3 next Wednesday, September 23. Countless spy photos have given us a good idea of its design, but new teaser images provide us with our clearest take on the front of the car yet. Well the clearest look BMW will give us. The large grille is visible through green smoke, flanked by unique headlights and bright green bodywork.
The four teaser images, however, don’t show much more than that. Two are wide shots of the front, showing a bit of the crumpled hood, black grille and splitter – which, if rumors are true, indicate it’s the Competition model – and the headlights. The second pair of images is a close-up of an apparent indentation in the M3’s hood. It’s barely visible in the wide-angle photo, stamped into the bulge that extends from the top of the grille and hood.
The performance of the new M3 should appeal to enthusiasts. Power will come from BMW’s 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged inline-six engine. The regular M3 will get 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) to enjoy while the Competition model will get a bit more – 503 horsepower (375 kW). The M3 will be available with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automaker. However, the Competition model will only be available with the automatic gearbox. More power has its drawbacks.
Previous rumors have suggested that the new M3 will arrive with Isle of Man green. An earlier teaser made the color appear darker than the last few images, but it could have been a trick of the light. If the two colors are the same, the Isle of Man green will not go unnoticed in a parking lot. The M3 will debut alongside the M4, although it will allegedly wear São Paulo yellow. Expect the M3 and M4 to arrive in the United States next year.
