Model Highlights

414 hp V-8 engine
This Formula 1™-inspired powerplant is a driving enthusiast's dream. An M3 first, this powerful 4.0 liter V-8 engine delivers a dynamic 414-hp output and 295 lb-ft of available torque, as well as a maximum engine speed of 8400 rpm. All this power catapults the M3 from 0-60 in just 5.1 exhilarating seconds.* The engine sports BMW's Double-VANOS technology which ensures pinpoint-accurate valve timing. This allows for optimal combustion at every rev range while lowering emissions. Eight separate throttle butterflies operate precisely and independently for amazingly quick throttle response. All this combines to deliver smooth power throughout the rev range and breathtaking acceleration when requested.
