The official launch date of the new BMW M3 based on the new BMW 3 Series (E90 model) is still unknown. Our sources at BMW will only say that it is as much as a year away putting the launch in Summer of 2006 possibly to coincide with the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The following pictures were taken in the desert southwest in the United States as BMW engineers put the M3 prototype through some hot weather testing.

The BMW 3 Series M model will be available as coupe, convertible and four door sports sedan. For the first time power will come from a V8 powerplant, derived from the M5 and M6. It is a 4.0 litre engine delivering 415 HP, the transmission is a seven speed SMG gearbox. A traditional six speed manual transmission will be offered as an option.

For additional information and up-to-the-minute news and comments read the BMW M3 Message Forums.
