It’s time to take a short break from all the news surrounding the Geneva Motor Show to talk about a car that won’t be making its debut in Switzerland. This car is the next generation BMW M3 sedan which has been caught testing one more time in Sweden.

When it comes to the engine powering the next M3, rumors have stated two possibilities. The first is a fresh 3.3-liter six-cylinder engine equipped with three turbos for a total output of 450 HP. This engine will sprint the M3 from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, while top speed is still electronically limited to 155 mph. The second possibility is a new 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that is currently under development. The future M3 will feature a more aggressive design to help distinguish it from the standard 3-Series sedan.

The new generation BMW M3 will be unveiled in 2013 and will only be offered as a sedan. Coupe and convertible models will go on sale under the 4-Series badge.

Camouflage is often used when a new car undergoes a test-drive and since it’s new, company manages to keep the details of the vehicle on the exterior. Leaving the enthusiast drool until it unveils on public.

@AstonVantag3 that’s what I definitely noticed first too. Probably, aside from the other, it’s only the part that has been exposed. LOL.

The first thing I have noticed is the cover of its mirrors. I think this will be more stylish than most of their previous productions.

I have found out that I was certainly wrong when I assumed that it isn’t able to compete as it appears to be an idle car; in 4.5 seconds, it accelerates at 0-60 mph.

Since this is tested in winter, doesn’t it only mean that it is strong? If you look at it though, it seems weak.

Dalia_Pinto: That’s a camouflage, LOL! smiley It’s not a big deal if its top speed is limited, the acceleration of 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds is nice.

@Audilicious: LOL, but the front bladder grilles are like BMW’s trademark. Even so, I have to agree with you that this built seems to be of low-performance.

The swirled white design topping the black paint is a cool resemblance of winter wonderland. Although it looks fancy, it’s definitely a sports car as it can boost up to 155mph, or perhaps higher if it isn’t limited.

To be honest, it looks like a slow-running car. When I saw that it sprints 0-60mph in only 4.5 seconds, I must admit I’ve been wrong. Additionally, on the exterior, the bladder grilles at the front stand out.
