VIDEO: 2014 BMW M3 in the buff!

October 31, 2013

They say that timing is everything, and that was certainly the case with our latest BMW M3 spy shots.

One of our spy photographers was simply out for a pleasure cruise on their motorcycle over the weekend when their hemlemt-mounted video camera captured something completely unexpected — an undisguised 2015 BMW M3 in the middle of a filming session.

Although somewhat grainy, the car seen here is easily identifiable as the  next-generation M3 thanks to its agressive front fascia, beefy wheels and tires and quad-exhaust outlets out back.  The M3 also looks to be sporting a hood bulge and a carbon fiber roof.

Overall, the 2014 M3 is expected to weigh about 220 pounds less than its predecessor.

Under hood, the new M3 will trade in its 4.0L V8 for a twin-turbocharged 3.0L inline-six.  Although power figures have yet to be confirmed, previous reports have suggested the M3 will arrive with 450 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque.  That power will be routed to the M3′s rear-wheels through a new limited-slip M Division rear differential.

A dual-clutch transmission will certainly be on offer, but it remains to be seen if BMW will offer the M3 with a third pedal.

Look for the 2014 BMW M3 to make its official debut at January’s Detroit auto show. <![CDATA[
