Power will come from a new lightweight V8 producing around 400hp and uses the latest dual-VANOS variable valve timing system. New engine building technology and lightweight materials mean the engine should amazingly weigh the same as the outgoing 3.2 liter in-line 6 cylinder from the current E46 M3 but with considerably more power.

The new M3 is slated to arrive in early 2006 with a 2005 Frankfurt debut and the cabriolet will have a Geneva 2006 debut with sales beginning in summer 2006. The SMG transmission will come standard and a CSL version of the coupe with excess of 420hp is being planned as well.


This info comes from GermanCarFans.com, so take it with a grain of salt.

Actually, if you look closely at the pic, you'll see that the wing mirrors and the wheels are P-chopped on.
I just noticed that if you look right by the driver's face, it says "hugeindesign" or something close to that. Really sneaky p-chop, but still makes for a good pic.

It's too early to see real pictures of a new M3 which is so far in it's development. It's a good photoshop, but will the production car have as many simmilarities to the E60 M5 as this one? (Same bumper, wheels, side grill,...)

Would a four door even be a possibility?
