We are all waiting for the new generation BMW M3 to be launched onto the market sometime in 2013, but the long wait is making us weary and the testing sessions are getting too few and far between for our liking. Luckily, we found this video of the upcoming model as it accelerated out of the Karussell on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The future BMW M3 will drop the current 420 HP engine and will replace it with a new twin-turbo 3.0 liter straight-six engine. The engine will take the output up to impressive 450 HP. This video provides us with the chance to the amazing sounds of the future turbocharged inline six-cylinder motor of the upcoming M3.

The new BMW M3 will be a 2013 model year car in Europe, but will be labelled as a 2014 car for the North American market.

NO doubt that the engine is great but the design is not something to be proud of.

The design is kinda distracting for me. But those engines are really great!.

Many were anticipating in this testing, now that the testing had already done, I think many people will love this car.

The engine is really cool. Hearing those roar really shocked me. But the only problem and the only thing that I don’t like about this is the design. Can they make it more simple?

At first I said that I really don’t it because of the design but when i’ve watch it, wow, the engine is incredible.

Can they give more details on the result of this testing? I really want to know.

Yeah, I like to hear more of its roaring engine. The video is enough to prove that the M3 is more powerful than the 1-series.

A really powerful car. I just hope it can be on the top of car sales when this car is already launched.

I will really wait for this car before I will buy my own car.

Wow. Six- cylinder motor ? That’s really incredible. I’ve only heard three-cylinder but six? Wow. I am going to wait for this car to be launch.

Having the twin turbo makes it more powerful other than the competetitors of this car.

I love the engine of this car, really powerful but the design ? It’s a BIT ridiculous.

Well, the power of this undoubtedly questionable. You can hear it on the video of testing this car.

I think they should do more testing so that they can make sure that when the time that BMW M3 will be launch, it will work properly.

Having those sounds right on your car will boost your confidence also. How I like to have one right away.
