all test numbers are BMW factory numbers. I don't know if this magazine is sold on newsstands, but I have received it since I got my first BMW a few years ago. The price estimation is not specific as to being with or without options, but it is an estimate from the M brand manager for North America, Tom Salkowsky.
This sounds like a simple list of official BMW specs - 0 - 62 is 100km - did they actually drive the car? Which BMW magazine is this? Thanks,


The magazine shows some pics of the Phoenix yellow M3 that we have all seen for the last 3 months. It also says that there will be some exclusive colors available, like Laguna Seca blue which it sadly does not show. Test numbers are 0-62 in 5.2 seconds, max hp output 330 @ 7900 rpm, max tourque 255 @ 4900 rpm, top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. It also mentions that the price will not be set till sometime this summer, but using Germany as a guideline it would be around $51,000. Tires are 225/45 18 front 255/40 18 rear.
