The BMW 3 Series entered a new generation for the 2012 model year, and three years later, we finally got to lay eyes on the new BMW M3. Of course, you can’t mistake for a Bimmer, thanks to those double kidney grilles, but its new look is a clear evolution of the ultimate 3 Series Model. Highlights of the exterior include a significantly more aggressive bumper with corner air inlets that could eyeball you from across the room, a dew design for the rear fascia that makes the rear end look far less like a Honda Civic. Rounding out the exterior are new exterior light units all the way around. Inside, the car gets the standard M treatment for the steering wheel, door sills, dead pedal, gear shifter, and trim. The most important part of the new-gen M3 is the new 3.0-liter, turbocharged, I-6 under the hood that’s good for 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.

The M3 has been a legend for a while now, tearing up asphalt since its debut back in 1983. It’s smaller so it is nimble, but it has always had significant power under the hood, making it the best of both worlds. With this new generation, BMW engineers were targeting perfection. With more than 400 ponies and enough torque to burn of a set of tires after just a few hours of “playing” the 2015 M3 is about as close to perfect as you can really get. With all of that out in the open, it’s about time for you to learn all about the new M3, so check out our full review below.
