Whenever BMW launch a new version of the M3 the world holds its breath in anticipation of how on earth the company could improve on a car that is so good at what it does. And yet they have done it again. The E90-93 series moves the game on with its lightweight V8 420 hp power unit (that’s a awful lot more than the outgoing E46 version) and a choice of Coupe, Saloon, Estate and Cabriolet. A car indeed for all reasons! The cabriolet version is only just starting to ship to BM dealerships and we know of a brand new Jerez Black example that will be available for some lucky individual to purchase for this September. This is the DCT version that will come with a Bamboo leather interior plus SatNav, 19″ M-Spoke Alloys, Electronic Damper Control, Electric Mirrors, Mirror Anthracite Dash Trim, Through-Load System, Heated Front Seats, USB Bluetooth, Telematics, DAB Radio and Hi-Fi Loudspeaker System. Price £62995. Did you know that the DCT (Double Clutch Transmission) or DKG (Doppel-Kupplungs-Getriebe in its native tongue) gearbox is faster than the SMG version it replaces and reduces shift-changes to less than one tenth of a second. Trivia: When Usain Bolt broke the world 100m sprint record in 9.72 seconds each step touched the ground for less than one tenth of a second. So it’s very quick indeed. If you would like more details of this forthcoming M3 cabriolet please email sales@thecarspy.net or give us a call on 01474 854490. For those that can’t wait for the real thing download BMW’s M3 Challenge PC game here. It’s free, takes about 10 minutes to download and install but its well worth it if you fancy flinging a nice white shiny new M3 around the Ring with great abandon!
